Tom Field was not in the matchday 18 as Bradford City were dumped out of the Checkatrade Trophy after a 1-0 defeat at home to Oldham Athletic last night. Tope Obadeyi scored the only goal, after three minutes, as the visitors made it through to tomorrow’s Third Round draw which will be broadcast live on talkSPORT at 12.30pm.
There were no other games involving on loan Bees this midweek but there’s a full programme of action this weekend. Tom and Bradford will look to bounce back from last night’s defeat when they host Rochdale in Sky Bet League One while, a division below, Jack Bonham’s Carlisle United head to Wales to take on Newport County.
In the National League Leyton Orient and Zain Westbrooke host Sutton United. Konstantin Kerschbaumer’s DSC Arminia Bielefeld face a trip to SV Sandhausen while Emiliano Marcondes lines-up for FC Nordsjaelland for the final time before his move to Griffin Park as they host Hobro.
