Super League: London Broncos v Bradford Bulls
Last Updated: 06/04/13 2:33pm
London Broncos will be hoping for home comforts away from home when they entertain the Bradford Bulls at London Wasps' Adam Park.
The game has been moved from the Broncos' usual home of the Twickenham Stoop due the recent adverse wintery weather.
London failed to pick up any points over the Easter period after losing to the Catalan Dragons and Warrington Wolves while the Bulls followed up their point against the Leeds Rhinos with a home success over the Salford City Reds.
Broncos boss Tony Rea has recalled Chris Bailey, Mark Bryant, Tony Clubb, Shane Rodney and Craig Gower from the squad that lost to Tony Smith's men on Easter Monday.
Erjon Dollapi, who made a try scoring debut in Monday's game, retains his place in the squad along with Scott Wheeldon, Mike McMeeken and Chris Melling.
Bulls coach Francis Cummins is forced to re-jig his side with Jamie Foster and John Bateman missing out on the trip to Adam Park.
Foster and Bateman, who both picked up knocks against Salford, are not fit to play but Chev Walker and Matt Diskin are both available.
However, their absence creates a chance for others with fit-again Luke Gale and Ben Evans coming into the side for the first time this season.
Cummins is not reading a lot into the Broncos' recent form, stating they omitted some of their key players in Monday's heavy defeat at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
"I looked at their team and it looks like they rested a few players. They had a real dig at Catalan and they have probably thought it would be tough at Warrington so it looks like they prioritised and they are going to have a real go at us this week," Cummings said of the Broncos.
"That's a challenge for us because they may be a bit fresher but we want to win because Easter doesn't finish for us until after Saturday's game and then we have a massive eight day turnaround before our next game!
"The game has been moved but I don't know if it will affect them or give us any advantage. They are in a strange position anyway - looking at their crowds - because it's not like playing at those grounds where the crowd is like an extra man and you know they are going to get a few penalties because the crowd get on the referee's back. But it means that they'll be travelling and so will we but I wouldn't read too much into that."
Bradford Bulls squad: J Donaldson, A Sidlow, J Langley, M Manuokafoa, L Gale, B Kearney, N Scruton, H L'Estrange, A Purtell, K Lulia, E Whitehead, E Kear, J Sammut, D Addy, T Olbison, C Walker, B Evans, A O'Brien, M Diskin
London Broncos squad: C Bailey, M Bryant, M Channing, T Clubb, L Colbon, M Cook, K Dixon, E Dollapi, C Gower, A Hurst, A Kaufasi, T Lee, M McMeeken, C Melling, C Randall, S Rodney, D Sarginson, S Wheeldon, M Witt
