Mansfield will check on midfielder Ollie Clarke ahead of their Sky Bet League Two clash with Bradford.

Clarke will have a fitness test after missing the Stags’ goalless draw with Stevenage last weekend with a minor injury.

Manager Graham Coughlan has no other new injury concerns as he continues the search for a first win of the season.

Defender Joe Riley remains a long-term absentee with a knee problem.

Bradford will be without midfielder Gareth Evans for the trip to the One Call Stadium.

Evans is facing a fortnight out after suffering a hamstring injury in Monday’s loss to Harrogate.

Zeli Ismail remains on the sidelines with a similar problem but is expected to return soon.

Defender Paudie O’Connor completes a three-match ban for his sending off at Forest Green last month.
