Crisis-hit Bradford Bulls will hope to find some on-field relief when they face London Broncos at Odsal on Sunday.

The Bulls have dropped to the bottom of the Super League table after being dock six points for going into administration, putting them in an extremely precarious position due to the reintroduction of relegation this season.

However, a win over London would reduce their deficit to the Broncos to just two points and increase hopes that Francis Cummins' side can put together a run which would put them back on terms with the rest of the league's strugglers.

But they will have to cope without new signing Lee Gaskell, who has been ruled out for up to three months with a knee injury.

Gaskell's absence is one of two changes to the 19-man squad the Bulls named for the 23-10 victory over Wakefield last time out.

Back-row forwards Tom Olbison and Oliver Roberts are brought in to replace Gaskell and Sam Wood, who did not make the matchday selection of 17 against the Wildcats in any case.

The Broncos are set to give a debut to a trio of overseas players following their arrival in the capital. Ben Farrar and Josh Drinkwater are set to form a new half-back pairing while prop Nick Slyney is also included in the squad.

A fourth new face - Wigan loanee James Greenwood - could also make his debut while hooker Scott Moore is free to play after being cleared of making dangerous contact with Salford prop Darrell Griffin during their heavy defeat to the Red Devils last weekend.

Bradford squad: Donaldson, Henry, Walker, Purtell, Gale, Kear, Olbison, Sidlow, Bridge, Scruton, George, Mullally, Roberts, Manuokafoa, Addy, Foster, Diskin, Kearney, O'Brien.

London squad: Atkins, Bishay, Caton-Brown, Cook, Cunningham, Drinkwater, Farrar, Forster, A Foster, Griffin, Greenwood, Lovell, Mataitonga, McMeeken, Minns, Moore, Krasniqi, O'Callaghan, Slyney.
