Former York City defender James Meredith could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines after being diagnosed with glandular fever.

"He was admitted to hospital over the weekend because it was that serious" - Phil Parkinson
The 24-year-old hasn't appeared for League Cup semi-finalists Bradford City since being replaced at half-time of their scoreless draw with Morecambe on New Year's Day.

"He was admitted to hospital over the weekend because it was that serious," Bantams manager Phil Parkinson told BBC Radio Leeds. "Hopefully, he's OK and we get him back sooner rather than later but at the moment it is not looking good.

"He'd been ill for a few weeks and it had been dragging on," he added. "It came to a head at the Morecambe game when he was sick and feeling dizzy and he's been at home ever since."

Meredith completed 33 appearances since joining Bradford over the summer after featuring in both of York's Wembley triumphs last term.
