New Boy to feature at Bradford

Bristol City added a third goalkeeper to their squad when former Luton, Chesterfield, Northampton and Boston keeper Nathan Abbey Signed a contract until the end of the current campaign. Although likely to be third choice at the offset, Abbey will offer competition to Adriano Basso and Steve Phillips and will offset the need for any emergency signing should one of them sustain an injury. Abbey is an experienced keeper with over 150 league games in his career to date.
Gary Johnson completed a busy morning by recruiting 6' 2'
Brighton striker Mark McCammon on a month's loan with a view to a permanent move, if things work out.
The Barbadian international striker has found himself out of the Brighton squad, at first through injury and then because of a difference of opinion with manager Mark McGhee. This situation of unrest worsened when the player joined in a local radio phone-in and was critical of the manager, the team and Brighton's supporters.
Clearly the 28 year old, 14st. 5lbs., striker, who has featured for Brentford, Cambridge, Charlton, Millwall and Swindon will benefit from a change of scenery.
After suffering with flu this week the new striker, who has been handed the number 19 shirt vacated by Steve Gillespie, is likely to be on the bench tomorrow with Dave Cotterill partnering Steve Brooker in attack. Marcus Stewart is out with a groin strain, Bas Savage is also suffering the after effects of flu and Calvin Andrew faces a scan on his knee problem and may return to Luton Town if the injury proves serious.
Matt Heywood appears to face another operation on his injured knee and is certainly out of contention for tomorrow and so the team is likely to be the one that featured at Scunthorpe, apart from Cotterill replacing Stewart.
The squad, complete with new signings, travelled north this morning and are to work out at Sheffield United's training facility later today.
