The central defender was rested from last weekend's visit to Accrington Stanley as a precaution.

However, Kenny Jackett has opted to bring him straight back into the team for Christian Burgess in this afternoon's clash with Bradford.

The Gosport youngster is among three changes to the side which drew 1-1 at the Crown Ground.
