FA Cup third round

Bury v Bradford City

Team news: Filipe Morais, Paul Anderson, Josh Morris and Steven Davies are all missing for Bradford for the Roses encounter. Bury will let former Sheffield Wednesday striker Leon Clarke decide if he feels in the right frame of mind to play. Clarke’s father Darrell died in hospital on Saturday night after an alleged assault on New Year’s Eve.

Doncaster Rovers v Stoke City

Team news: Injured Felipe Mattioni has returned to Everton for treatment, and will be out for another two weeks. But Rovers defender Gary MacKenzie and striker Curtis Main are back in contention today. Stoke will make numerous changes, and will run the rule over Geoff Cameron, Phil Bardsley and Stephen Ireland ahead of the Potters’ first ever visit to the Keepmoat Stadium.

Huddersfield Town v Reading

Team news: Huddersfield are likely to give a debut to new loan signing James Husband after the full-back joined from Middlesbrough yesterday.

Town boss David Wagner has no new injury concerns and is not expected to make many changes from the team that beat Bolton last week.

Hull City v Brighton

Team news: Shaun Maloney (thigh) is Hull City’s only new injury problem, having picked up a knock in training. Long-term problems keep out Michael Dawson (knee) and Alex Bruce (back). Brighton can call upon recent signings Liam Ridgewell and Richie Towell after the duo received international clearance. However, Anthony Knockaert is unlikely to play after joining the Seagulls on Thursday.

Leeds Utd v Rotherham

Team news: Alex Mowatt (groin) could return, but Chris Wood (hamstring) is out, along with Ross Turnbull and Gaetano Berardi. Millers loanee Tony Andreu has returned to Norwich and Stephen Kelly, Farrend Rawson, Leon Best and Lee Frecklington are sidelined. Frazer Richardson could return following concussion.

Manchester United v Sheffield United

Team news: Matt Done (hamstring) is back in training to boost Blades’ options. Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is available to face Sheffield United in the FA Cup on Saturday after he overcame a hamstring injury.

Adnan Januzaj, who was recalled from his loan at Borussia Dortmund on Thursday, is not fit enough to play, but Will Keane may feature following his return from a temporary spell at Preston.

Antonio Valencia (foot), Luke Shaw (leg), Marcos Rojo (shoulder) and Phil Jones (ankle) are out while Ashley Young is likely to be rested as manager Louis van Gaal says the winger is “in the red zone” in terms of his fitness.

Middlesbrough v Burnley

Team news: Tomas Mejias, Tomas Kalas, Fernando Amorebieta, Adam Forshaw, Carlos de Pena and Diego Fabbrini could be handed starts by Boro, likely to make a number of changes and utilise their squad depth against the Clarets. Burnley chief Sean Dyche - who has bids in for several players including Brentford’s James Tarkowski - is mulling over changes. Dean Marney and Michael Duff are doubtful with injury.

Sheffield Wednesday v Fulham

Team news: Sheffield Wednesday forwards Marco Matias (hernia surgery) and Sergiu Bus could return to contention following injury, but Tom Lees (hamstring) and Michael Turner (knee) remain sidelined. Wednesday are hoping on-loan striker Gary Hooper is granted permission to play by parent club Norwich, while Sam Hutchinson, Lucas Joao and Jeremy Helan are pushing for recalls.

JP Trophy Northern Area final 1st leg

Barnsley v Fleetwood

Team news: Aidy White is set to be involved after joining the Reds for the rest of the season after leaving Rotherham. Josh Scowen (knee) is still sidelined for the Reds, who could hand a debut to new loan striker Ashley Fletcher, with the Keighley-born player signing from Manchester United for a month. Loan winger Lloyd Isgrove is eligible to play along with Kevin Long, with Lee Johnson confirming that Lewin Nyatanga missed the win over Millwall for selection reasons.
