London Broncos coach Rob Powell will hand a debut to new signing Scott Wheeldon for the visit of Bradford at Leyton Orient.

Wheeldon is likely to go straight into the starting line-up in place of Karl Temata, who is ruled out with a back spasm.

Jason Golden is absent with a sore neck and ribs and Julien Rinaldi continues his recovery from ankle ligament damage, while Tony Clubb remains sidelined with a groin injury.

"We need to continue to build on our home form when we showcase rugby league in Leyton on Sunday," said Powell.

"Scott Wheeldon comes straight into the squad after settling in well this week.

"We need to display the same tough attitude to the game as we did last week at Batley."

Bradford are able to welcome back winger Elliott Kear, who has missed the last nine matches with a broken hand.

Chev Walker and Tom Olbison are also in contention but centre Adrian Purtell is out with a hamstring injury while second rower John Bateman begins a three-match ban.

Bulls' coach Mick Potter is looking forward to the game at Brisbane Road.

"It's at a new venue that both sides are not familiar with and hopefully there will be a good crowd that will make a good atmosphere.

"They have struggled at the Stoop for years to get good crowds and I think it has to be good for the game.

"It is a football ground and we have played on those before but hopefully it will be good and the Broncos go back here again.

And as for his side, whose recent revival has stalled with back-to-back league and cup defeats, he said: "I think we are still improving. We defend very well but we keep coming up with some poor errors that we need to eradicate from our game."

London squad: Bailey, B. Bolger, Bryant, Channing, Cook, Dixon, Dorn, Gower, Howell, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Melling, O'Callaghan, Randall, Rodney, Robertson, Sarginson, Wheeldon, Witt.

Bradford squad: Kear, Diskin, Lulia, Whitehead, C. Walker, Burgess, Jeffries, Addy, Hargreaves, Kopczak, L'Estrange, Pryce, Platt, Langley, Gale, Ainscough, Olbison, Elima, Manuokafoa.
