Bradford centre Michael Platt is back in contention to face Wigan on Sunday after recovering from a knee injury that has kept him out since February.

Prop Ben Evans, who is on a season-long loan from Warrington, is hoping to make his long-awaited debut for the Bulls.

Wigan second rower Harrison Hansen is set to make his first appearance of the season after recovering from a wrist injury.

The Warriors also welcome back from injury skipper Sean O'Loughlin, prop Lee Mossop and winger Josh Charnley.

Winger Pat Richards will also return after missing the win over Wakefield last Sunday after being delayed on his return from his brother's wedding in Australia.

Chris Tuson, Anthony Gelling, Greg Burke and Tom Spencer are among those making way.

After picking up five points over the Easter period, Bulls coach Francis Cummins is convinced his side can beat the Super League leaders. "We can beat any side in the competition," he told the Bradford club website.

"On the day we have to play at our best and we can't rely on any team to have an off day.

"But if we can get a roll on - and that's easier said than done against Wigan - and if we are willing to play with the ball and get those offloads, then we can be very dangerous and we look very good.

"But we know we have to work hard firstly to create chances and then to take them."

Bradford squad: Donaldson, Sidlow, Langley, Manuokafoa, Gale, Diskin, Kearney, Scruton, L'Estrange, Purtell, Lulia, Whitehead, Kear, Sammut, Addy, Olbison, Walker, Platt, Evans.

Wigan squad: Charnley, Crosby, Dudson, Farrell, Flower, Goulding, Green, Hansen, Hughes, McIlorum, Mossop, O'Loughlin, Powell, Richards, Smith, Taylor, Thornley, L Tomkins, S Tomkins.
