If It Aint Broke...

That's how the saying goes doesn't it? It is aint broke don't fix it!

Following Bradford's fine 4-0 win over Brentford, many people's tip for promotion from league one this season, the Bantams once again proved that they can well and truly hold their own in this division.

They'll be looking to keep up this good early season form when Colchester come to the Coral Windows Stadium on Saturday.

Phil Parkinson doesn't have any fresh concerns with his squad so you'd be surprised if he doesn't stick with that mantra mentioned above, sticking with the same starting XI wouldn't surprise too many.

The Bantams do have Rory McArdle available after international, however Jason Kennedy (foot) and Matt Taylor (back) look as though they could miss out.

There's not quite so much luxury for Colchester though with Sanchez Watt and Josh Thompson both ruled out with injury with Freddie Sears and Gavin Massey doubtful, add to that the fact that Ryan Dickson hasn't trained this week due to illness it's far from ideal preparations.

Magnus Okuonghae (suspension) can return though.

Colchester have started the season well, and play some decent football, so it should make for a very good spectacle on Saturday afternoon. This really could go any way but I can't look past a Bradford win at the moment as they've been riding on a crest of a wave in recent months.

What way do you think this will game go then people?
