Scannell previously played under Simon Grayson during their time together at Huddersfield Town, where he made 158 appearances.

A former Crystal Palace player, the winger joined Bradford City in 2018 but has been hampered by injuries, making just 18 appearances last season.

Pritchard, meanwhile, was a player Bantams boss Gary Bowyer brought to Bloomfield Road in 2018.

The 26-year-old has yet to make a start this season but has made three appearances off the bench.
