CITY will have no qualms in involving Reece Webb-Foster in their play-off fight after recalling him from Bradford Park Avenue.

Phil Parkinson brought the young striker back from loan to bolster an attack that has suddenly been shorn of options.

Jamie Proctor is a serious doubt for this afternoon's huge home clash with Walsall and will have a late test on his back problem.

Steve Davies begins a three-match ban for his red card at Coventry and Wes Thomas, who is going into the final week of his 93-day loan, is out with a virus.

Webb-Foster, who turned 18 last month, became one of the youngest debutants in club history last season when he came on against MK Dons in the Capital One Cup at the age of 16 years and 200 days.

He is bang in form after scoring four goals in a week for National League North club Avenue.

Webb-Foster, from Haworth, smashed a first-half hat-trick past Worcester and then followed up with a free-kick at Valley Parade on Tuesday night as Avenue retained the West Riding County Cup against Harrogate.

Parkinson said: "Reece has got real quality and we just decided to get him back in the fold.

"Options are running out for us with Proctor and the problem with his back, Davies getting suspended and Wes being ill.

"Bradford Park Avenue are now safe in their league and he's helped them along the way – and so has Dylan (Mottley-Henry).

"You never know, he might be needed at some point and I want him back with us training every day, so then he's ready if called upon.

"He's had his problems this year with little injuries and a family bereavement. But we decided to bring him back and he's coming back in form."

Should Proctor fail to recover in time, James Hanson will be in line for his first start in ten games.

Whoever gets the nod, it promises to be the biggest Valley Parade occasion of the season against a Walsall side still chasing automatic promotion from League One.

City have won their last five games at home and Parkinson is looking for the same huge backing from the stands.

The Bantams boss, who will also monitor defender Reece Burke's tight calf, said: "It's going to be so important. We come into this on the back of a disappointing midweek result but now we've got to really pull together.

"It's a fantastic game to be part of as a Bradford City supporter. Let's make the most of this. I just want the supporters to be right behind every single player, like they always are, and give us every chance.

"Hanson is ready and waiting, as he said last week. He's been a huge player for us over the years. I just feel whatever team we pick, I want the supporters to get right behind the players."
