Swindon Advertiser:

ONE TO WATCH: Callum Cooke

BRADFORD City have certainly exploited the loan market this season.

Not only did they poach Jamie Devitt from underneath Swindon Town boss Richie Wellens’ nose after Blackpool boss Simon Grayson admitted the high-rated attacking midfielder was surplus to requirements, the club also drafted in Matt Palmer, Dylan Connolly and Callum Cooke.

Cooke has reportedly linked up well in midfield with Connolly as Bradford start to find their feet in League Two following relegation last season.

Cooke will look to exploit Town’s possible weakness in midfield amid Wellens’ injury crisis.

KEY BATTLE: Jerry Yates v Anthony O'Connor

SWINDON Town haven’t seen the best of Jerry Yates in recent weeks.

His relentless work-rate has been ever present, but opposition teams have targeted the Rotherham United loanee’s threat and have consequently shut him out of games.

Without Eoin Doyle, who isn’t allowed to play against parent club Bradford City this weekend, Yates will possibly be joined up front by Kaiyne Woolery, whose own inconsistency in front of goal won’t fill Town fans with confidence.

Bradford defender Anthony O’Connor’s task certainly could have been tougher this weekend at Valley Parade.
