Meanwhile, there are two changes for the visitors, who are the only side still in the competition that have never lifted the trophy.
Stephen Kelly and Danny Williams both come in, while Chris Gunter and Garath McCleary miss out after featuring in the 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers earlier this week, while Yakuba is among the substitutes.
Bradford: Williams, Darby, McArdle, Davies, Meredith, Liddle, Morais, Knott, Clarke, Hanson, Stead
Reading: Federici, Kelly, Hector, Pearce, Obita, Chalobah, Mackie, Williams, Norwood, Robson-Kanu, Pogrebnyak
