Centre Keith Lulia has been named in Mick Potter's 19-man Bradford squad and could make his debut against Wigan on Sunday.

Lulia has recovered from the hamstring injury that kept him out of the opening two rounds of the season and has replaced fellow Australian Adrian Purtell in the squad. Purtell tore a pectoral muscle in the 20-12 win at Castleford.

Michael Platt is also added to the party that beat the Tigers last weekend, with injured second rowers James Donaldson (face) and Ina Sibbit (knee) making way.

Second rower Liam Farrell returns to the Warriors side for the trip to Odsal after serving a one-match suspension.

Jack Hughes looks set to continue at centre in the absence of George Carmont (broken thumb) after impressing in the win over Leeds Rhinos last weekend.

Joe Mellor and Anthony Gelling are also included after good displays in the Valvoline Cup win over the Bulls on Thursday evening.

Wigan put more than 100 points on Bradford in the sides' two meetings last season so this is an early chance for the Bulls to show signs of improvement in Potter's second season in charge.

Bradford squad: Burgess, Crookes, Diskin, Gale, Hargreaves, Jeffries, Joseph, Kear, Kearney, Kopczak, Langley, L'Estrange, Lulia, Platt, Sammut, Scruton, Sykes, Walker, Whitehead.

Wigan squad: Tomkins, Charnley, Goulding, Richards, Finch, Leuluai, McIlorum, Mossop, Hansen, Hock, O'Loughlin, Lima, Farrell, Tuson, Lauaki, Flower, Gelling, Mellor, Hughes.
