PLYMOUTH will be keen to prove there is life without Graham Carey at Valley Parade tomorrow.

Argyle's main man is suspended for the City game after picking up his fifth booking.

Carey was a huge influence in Plymouth's promotion from League Two and has once again been the catalyst in their improving form after a terrible start to the season.

He was involved in five of their goals in October, scoring two of them, to be short-listed for the divisional player of the month award.

But Plymouth will have to put their five-game unbeaten run on the line this weekend without him.

Defender Sonny Bradley remains confident they can come back from the long trip to West Yorkshire with something.

He said: "We know that if we defend well and stay in shape, we are very hard to break down.

"Bradford are a good team, very good at home as well, and it's going to be a tough one. But we are coming off the back of some very good results.

"If we go there with the right game-plan and the right attitude, then I think we will get a result."

Prior to their upturn in fortunes, Plymouth had taken only one point from the previous nine league games to cut them adrift at the foot of the table.

Yet they are now only a point off second-bottom Bury and Bradley believes the unity within the squad has helped turn the tide.

He said: "Nobody is turning against each other. I have been in dressing rooms before where players turn against staff or the other way around or players turn against players.

"Before you know it, the downward spiral is so rapid it's frightening. We realise we can't do that and we are going to stick together."

Plymouth boss Derek Adams is looking forward to a touchline reunion with Stuart McCall after locking horns regularly in the Scottish Premier League.

He said: "I know him and Kenny Black very well. I get on well with them both."
