The Bantams have doubts over Zavon Hines who came off on Boxing Day and the man who replaced him on Boxing Day Bantams Leading Scorer Nahki Wells.
Phil Parkinson told the official site:
'Nahki is still not right,' confirmed Parkinson.
'He came in and trained on Christmas Day and then said he felt fine on Boxing Day. He had managed to keep some food down and he said he felt his strength was up again.
'In hindsight looking at it now though, we probably should have told him just to have a couple more days rest.
'We could only make the call on what we were told at the time, but he wasn't quite ready to feature properly against Accrington.
'Learning from this now, we have to make sure he is completely right before we throw him back in now.
'With that in mind, I don't think he'll be with us for the weekend.'
The Bantams have doubts over Zavon Hines who picked a eye injury on Boxing day and Carl McHugh who is rated by the club as extremely doubtful with a calf Strain.
Nahki Wells, Curtis Good and Nathan Doyle have all been affected by a viral bug which has swept though the club and are all doubts for the game.
Stephen Darby could be the player having been brilliant in recent weeks and was a leading contender for Man of the Match Vs Stanley on Boxing Day.
Terry Gornell returns from suspension as Rochdale take on the high-flying Bantams.
The on-loan Shrewsbury forward has missed the last three games after being dismissed in the 3-2 defeat to Exeter on December 8.
Terry Gornell back in the Rochdale team and looking for goals.
Bradford have won 55%, drawn 30% and lost 15% of their last 20 home games.
Bradford have failed to score in 20% of their last 20 home games.
Rochdale have failed to score in 10% of their last 20 away games.
Bradford V Rochdale on Saturday will be overseen by referee David Coote. The Newark official is in his third season on the league list. In total this season, before the Christmas fixtures, David had refereed 18 games, showing 59 yellow cards and three red.
3-1 Home Win. Parkinsons Barmy Army march on into 2013!
