Matt Duke

Bradford City have recalled goalkeeper Matt Duke from his loan spell with League Two rivals Northampton.

The Bantams will be without first choice custodian Jon McLaughlin for the next three matches after he was sent off against Crawley on Tuesday.

McLaughlin, along with Andrew Davies and Luke Oliver, was shown a red card after the game for his role in a post-match brawl.

The club have chosen not to appeal any of the suspensions.

Speaking after the game, boss Phil Parkinson had told BBC Radio Leeds: "We'll have to get Matt back straight away. These suspensions are exactly what we didn't need."

Duke made nine appearances for the Cobblers after joining in February.
