Bradford have included Alex Mellor and Sam Wood in their 19-man squad for Sunday's Super League clash with London Broncos at Provident Stadium.

The young duo have been drafted in to replace Matty Blythe and Adrian Purtell, who are both ruled out with knee injuries.

The Bulls have nothing to play for but pride following their 46-34 loss at Castleford last time out, a result that means Francis Cummins' side can no longer finish the regular season in the top eight.

Bradford also suffered defeat in their last home outing, letting slip an 18-4 half-time lead against Catalan Dragons.

Losing run

However, the Broncos are on an even worse run of form. Super League's basement boys have not won in league action since upsetting St Helens at the end of April.

Coach Tony Rea knows his side must win their final two games, and hope nearest rivals Salford fail to pick up anything more than a point, if they are to avoid finishing 2013 with the wooden spoon.

"It's been a good week in training," Rea told the club's official website.

"We've been able to do some hard work with the week off and we've trained with a lot of determination and the attitude has been good. It's a game we're looking forward to."

The visitors look set to hand a debut to 20-year-old full-back Mason Caton-Brown, who has been playing in Championship One this year on a dual registration for Hemel Stags.

Bradford: Donaldson, Langley, Walker, Kearney, Gale, Kear, Scruton, O'Brien, Wood, Platt, Lulia, Mellor, Olbison, Manuokafoa, Addy, Foster, Diskin, Sammut, Evans.

London Broncos: Bryant, Bishay, Caton-Brown, Colbon, Cook, Dixon, Dollapi, Fisher, Howell, Hurst, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Lee, McMeeken, Melling, Sarginson, Soward, Wicks, Woodburn-Hall.
