Bradford could be without James Meredith, Zavon Hines and Stephen Darby for the home game with Exeter as injuries begin to take their toll at Valley Parade.
Full-back Meredith (hip) and striker Hines (ankle) are serious doubts and may both require scans to determine the full extent of their injuries, while defender Darby is struggling with a groin problem and could undergo a late fitness test.
Manager Phil Parkinson will be able to call on loanees Craig Forsyth and John Egan, though, as his fourth-placed side look to close in on the automatic promotion places.
Watford winger Forsyth and Sunderland defender John Egan were not eligible for the midweek penalty shootout win over Northampton in the FA Cup.
Winger Kyel Reid (groin) and central defenders Luke Oliver (Achilles) and Andrew Davies (knee) remain long-term absentees.
Exeter striker Guillem Bauza came through a reserve game in midweek unscathed to give Paul Tisdale another attacking option ahead of the clash.
The Spanish striker netted in a 1-1 draw with Bournemouth's second string, having missed the club's last five games, but midfielder Arron Davies had to watch from the sidelines as he continues his recovery from his calf injury.
The Grecians face Phil Parkinson's side, who pulled off another cup victory on Tuesday night, on Saturday before a Tuesday night trip to npower League Two leaders Gillingham, back to back away trips that will be real test for Tisdale's troops.
"We have two very tough games now in Bradford and Gillingham," the City boss said. "Our players will need a bit of a break ahead of what will be a tough four or five days.

Cureton inspires Grecians to victory Jamie Cureton's 13th goal of the season shortly before half-time gave Exeter a 1-0 win at Bradford.
The 37-year-old striker rounded off a superb three-man move, hooking the ball into the corner of the net from eight yards after left-back Craig Woodman's cross to the far side of the penalty area had been headed into the goalmouth by Matt Oakley.
Cureton had come close to scoring in the 13th minute when he saw his 15-yard shot rebound off the far post after Alan Gow had played the ball into his path.
The Exeter defence withstood some intense pressure in the second half as Bradford pressed for an equaliser, while the home side had a strong claim for a penalty in the 58th minute when leading scorer Nahki Wells appeared to be pulled by right-back Steve Tully.
Skipper Danny Coles cleared off the line after substitute Alan Connell forced the ball past `keeper Artur Krysiak in the 73rd minute.
