Luke Oliver could be ready to deputise for McArdle, while Mark Yeates may come in for Nahki Wells, who is carrying an ankle injury.
On-loan striker Caleb Folan could be in line to make his first start for the Bantams and Parkinson may yet turn to the former Derby man to replace Wells.
"Just recently we've had some disruption for the first time through injury, but we've now got players I'm very confident can come in and make a contribution and we will definitely need all of them," Parkinson said.
