Bradford Bulls have made two changes to their squad ahead of Sunday's Super League clash with Widnes Vikings at Odsal.
Prop Manase Manuokafoa comes back into the 19-man squad in place of forward Jacob Fairbank, who is now on loan with London Broncos.
Meanwhile, Francis Cummins' only other switch sees Adrian Purtell back in action at the expense of back row Oliver Roberts.
The Bulls enter the clash on the back of three successive defeats and although they hold a two-place advantage over Widnes in the standings, Cummins acknowledges the threat posed by the Vikings.
"They play some really good football and they have some very dangerous players in there," he said. "If they get a roll on they can certainly score some points."
Meanwhile Denis Betts has named three changes to the side which lost 38-28 to Leeds Rhinos last time out, including the inclusion of former Bulls forward Phil Joseph.
The utility man was released by Bradford last season and is delighted to have recovered from injury in time to face his old employers.
"I'm ecstatic to be back just in time to face my former club Bradford, as I made lots of friends at the club who I am still close with from my time there so it will be great to see them all again," the 28-year-old said.
"Obviously, it's different when you're on the field, as you have to put those friendships to one side for 80 mins."
Joseph's inclusion means there is no space for Steve Pickersgill in the travelling party while Danny Craven and Paddy Flynn make way for Alex Gerrard and Cameron Phelps.
Bradford: Donaldson, Kearney, Olbison, Sidlow, Gale, Kear, Scruton, Bateman, L'Estrange, Platt, Lulia, Purtell, O'Brien, Manuokafoa, Addy, Langley, Diskin, Blythe, Evans.
Widnes: Ah Van, Allen, K. Brown, Cahill, Clarke, Gerrard, Hanbury, Hock, Isa, Joseph, Kavanagh, Leuluai, Marsh, Mellor, O'Carroll, Owens, Phelps, Winterstein, White.
