Hull FC prop Sam Moa will sit out Friday night's home clash with ailing Bradford as he has been granted compassionate leave.

Meanwhile, full-back Wade McKinnon has joined Mark O'Meley and Joe Westerman in the treatment room after injuring his groin in last Sunday's win over Castleford.

As a result Chris Green and Liam Kent are in line for their debuts, while centre Kirk Yeaman is hoping to make his return ahead of schedule from foot surgery.

Bradford will be hoping to put a deeply troubling week off the field behind them with a good display on the pitch at the KC Stadium.

The Bulls welcome back second rower Olivier Elima from suspension to replace the injured Chev Walker, while Adrian Purtell takes over from Wakefield-bound Paul Sykes after recovering from illness.

Coach Peter Gentle must also do without the services of half-back Ben Jeffries, who has a hamstring strain, so Shaun Ainscough and Phil Joseph come into the match-day party.

Hull FC squad: Aspinwall, Briscoe, Bowden, Ellis, Horne, Houghton, Green, Kent, Lynch, Martin, Manu, Nicklas, O'Carroll, Seymour, Sharp, Tickle, Turner, Whiting, Yeaman

Bradford Bulls squad: Addy, Ainscough, Bateman, Burgess, Crookes, Diskin, Elima, Hargreaves, Joseph, Kearney, Langley, L'Estrange, Lulia, Manuokafoa, Platt, Pryce, Purtell, Sammut, Whitehead
