Hull KR travel to Bradford on Sunday looking for their third successive victory in the Super League.

Bradford currently sit third in the table with seven points from their first six outings of the 2013 campaign, although they drew with Widnes last time out.

There is a solitary point between the pair going into the weekend's showdown and Hull KR winger Alex Brown will be looking to add to his tally after a hat-trick of tries in the Robins' 42-22 victory over London Broncos.

Adrian Purtell returns for the first time since suffering a heart attack last year after being given the all-clear to resume his Bradford career.

Bulls coach Francis Cummins also has John Bateman and Jamie Foster back after injury, in Bateman's case for the first time this season following a shoulder reconstruction.

But Matty Blythe, Matt Diskin and Jamie Langley have all been ruled out, paving the way for 18-year-old Sam Wood to receive his first call-up.

Craig Sandercock has made just one change to his squad ahead of Sunday's tie at Bradford's Provident Stadium.

Hooker Josh Hodgson is included in the squad at the expense of prop James Green.

Bradford squad: Donaldson, Sidlow, O'Brien, Manuokafoa, Bateman, Wood, Kearney, Scruton, L'Estrange, Purtell, Lulia, Whitehead, Kear, Sammut, Addy, Olbison, C. Walker, Murphy, Foster

Hull KR squad: Salter, Brown, Walker, Horne, Griffin, Paterson, Mika, Tuimavave, Welham, Burns, Hall, Paea, Carlile, Cox, Dobson, D. Hodgson, Eden, Lovegrove, J. Hodgson

What they said...

Bradford coach Francis Cummins

"They look very, very solid and if you look at their stats then they don't give the opposition much and we are a bit like that too when we are at our best."
