BRADFORD CITY VISIT THE VALLEY

13-Feb 04:50, by Ketts

Out of form Bradford City visit The Valley on Tuesday.

Charlton face Bradford City at The Valley on Tuesday evening, followed by a trip to MK Dons on Saturday.

After squandering five points at the very end of their last two games, the Addicks will be anxious to pick up all six points from these two fixtures.

With three games in a week, Karl Robinson may opt to rotate his squad a little. 

Jason Pearce played 70 minutes for the Under-23s on Monday, and could return to the starting line-up on Saturday. Another to feature in the Under-23 game was Lewis Page, and he is also close to a comeback.

Tariqe Fosu was taken off late on at Doncaster, and he may be on the bench for this game. 

Robinson may consider giving Josh Magennis a game on the left, and playing Michal Zyro up front. Sullay Kaikai is another pushing for a starting berth.‎

Bradford ended a run of six defeats in all competitions when they fought out a 2-2 draw with Bury at Valley Parade on Saturday.

The Bantams appointed Simon Grayson as their new manager on Sunday. Grayson has a decent pedigree at this level, but Robinson will be confident of winning this game.

But to do so, his team will have to be more clinical in front of goal. ‎Charlton could look something like this:

Amos; Solly, Konsa, Bauer, Dasilva; Kashi, Forster-Caskey, Marshall,  Reeves, Kaikai; Magennis.

‎Subs: Phillips, Lennon,Jackson, Aribo, Fosu, Ajose, Zyro.

The referee will be Nick Kinseley from Essex.‎

The Addicks need to string a few wins together if they are to make the play-offs. Anything less than three points from this game will be a huge disappointment.
