Bradford are able to call on centre Matty Blythe for the West Yorkshire derby against Leeds Rhinos at Odsal.
Blythe has been absent for eight weeks with ankle and back problems but returns to the fold with Adrian Purtell moving to the wing.
Michael Platt misses out but second rower John Bateman is expected to recover from a wrist injury sustained in Sunday's defeat at Warrington.
Leeds, fourth in the Super League table and unbeaten in eight matches, welcome back prop Ryan Bailey, who has completed a four-match ban.
However they are without second rower Stevie Ward, who dislocated his shoulder in last Sunday's win at Hull KR.
Leeds coach Brian McDermott has been pleased with the way his team has defended so far this season but believes there is still plenty of room for improvement ahead of Friday's clash.
"Our security with the ball has not been great and there are teams out there who are attacking better than us at the moment," McDermott said.
"However, we have been doing enough to get in front in games on attack and our defence is ensuring the victories."
Leeds skipper Kevin Sinfield's is set to make his 450th appearance for the Rhinos while prop Kylie Leuluai is in line to become only the third overseas player to make 200 appearances for the club.
Bradford squad: Donaldson, Sidlow, Kearney, Manuokafoa, Gale, Kear, Scruton, Bateman, L'Estrange, Purtell, Lulia, Whitehead, Diskin, Sammut, Addy, Olbison, Walker, Blythe, Evans.
Leeds squad: Hardaker, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Singleton, Sutcliffe.
