DEREK Adams is keeping his fingers crossed that one of City’s three midweek injuries will be fit to face Scunthorpe.

The Bantams boss confirmed that Lee Angol, Caolan Lavery and Charles Vernam are still being monitored after they were all forced off in the second half at Tranmere.

But Oscar Threlkeld is back in training and looking to feature at Glanford Park following a two-game absence.

Adams said: “We’ve obviously got to assess Angol, Lavery and Vernam and we’re doing that.

“We won’t know until tomorrow whether they will be fit for Saturday. I’m hopeful for maybe one of the three.

“Oscar should be fit. He’s trained today so hopefully he’s come through that well.

“He’ll be able to train tomorrow and then he should be back in the squad.”

Saturday’s hosts Scunthorpe are currently sat at the foot of League Two – a change from City’s schedule over the last month.

“We’ve obviously played a lot of teams in the top half of the table recently,” added Adams. “This is the first team we’ve played in the bottom half for a long while.

“We’re looking forward to the game because it gives us the opportunity to try and get the three points we want.

“Leyton Orient were probably expecting to win away to Scunthorpe and came away with a 1-1. It just shows you how tight the league is.

“But we’ll go there, attack them, create chances and try to be better in front of goal.”
