Bradford at full strength for Wimbledon
Bradford City are expected to be at full strength for todays League Two away clash at relegation threatened AFC Wimbledon.
Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has vowed to pick the strongest side possible rather than rest players for his teams League Cup Final showdown with Swansea at Wembley Stadium on February 24.
We certainly won't be picking a side on Saturday at Wimbledon looking to rest players for Wembley, he stated on the Bantams website. We will be picking the side we feel is the best one to win.
This game is an important one for us and we'll be picking the strongest side possible.
While the Bantams have turned heads in this seasons League Cup the same cannot be said for their league form that has dipped considerably since the start of the new year.
Bradford have only taken five points from a possible 21 since January 1.
The Yorkshire club put an end to an eight-game winless streak stretching back to December 26 earlier this week courtesy of a morale-boosting win at Wycombe Wanderers.
Citys Bermudian striker Nahki Wells was rested during Tuesday nights match but is expected to get a run out today against the Dons at the Fans Stadium.
Bradford thumped Wimbledon 5-1 in the first league meeting between the two sides at Valley Parade last August with Wells scoring the games opening goal.
With Wimbledon in a battle to stave off relegation, Parkinson has warned his charges not to take anything for granted against their lowly hosts ahead of what he anticipates will be a tough outing on the road.
"It will be a really hard game we know that, he said. They are down there fighting for their lives and those sort of matches can be the hardest ones to overcome.
We had a good win on Tuesday at Wycombe and we now need to follow that up at Wimbledon. As always, we'll have to be fully committed, scrap for everything and really earn the right to way if we want to win this weekend.
