Wildcats v Bulls: Teams
At Rapid Solicitors Stadium, Saturday February 25, kick-off 7.45pm Live on Sky Sports HD1
Richard Agar's Wakefield enter the match fully refreshed after last week's enforced break due to Leeds' involvement in the World Club Challenge.
And he makes just one change from the 19 that gathered ahead of the disappointing home defeat to Hull KR a fortnight ago.
Motu Tony is poised to return to the side with Frankie Galiano dropping out of the initial squad.
"We'd have rather have kept playing because we feel we're finding some rhythm and we're learning about each other all the time," Agar told the club's website.
"(But) To be able to freshen them up early in the week and not be rushing around at the back end of the week with preparation, then hopefully we've managed that side of things well and we'll have the boys chomping at the bit on Saturday."
Bradford chief Mick Potter makes two changes to the squad that met ahead of last week's crushing home defeat to Wigan.
Luke Gale is set to be sidelined for several weeks after injuring ankle ligaments in that match, with Ben Jeffries set to make his first appearance of the season.
John Bateman is added to the squad while utility Danny Addy comes in for Paul Sykes in the only other change.
James Donaldson is ruled out for the next six months after knee surgery and Ian Sibbit is still troubled by the shoulder injury he picked up at Castleford.
Potter admitted his side need to direct their efforts in the right channels if they are to get the results they are looking for.
"It wasn't good enough and it wasn't what we wanted," he said of the 54-16 defeat to Wigan. "The players tried their best but a lot of our efforts were misdirected.
"There was a lot of effort individually instead of working together and they got more frustrated as the game went on and that was reflected in the scoreline.
"It's about working together and doing the right things all the time and it's been a tough week in training, both on the field and with the video and we have shown we had a lot of misdirected effort that we need to channel into the right areas," he told the club's website.
Wakefield: Mathers, Fox, Collis, Mellars, Cockayne, John, Wood, Wilkes, Ellis, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Southern, Washbrook, Aiton , Johnson, Kirmond, Tony, Smith, Trout.
Bradford: Kear, Diskin, Lulia, Whitehead, L'Estrange, Burgess, Crookes, Addy, Hargreaves, Sammut, Kearney, Kopczak, Platt, Langley, Scruton, Bateman, Joseph, Jeffries, C. Walker.
