Bradford and Castleford clash on Monday with both sides looking to bounce back from Magic Weekend derby defeats.

The Bulls went down 37-22 to Leeds Rhinos at the Etihad Stadium, while the Tigers lost 32-26 to Wakefield Wildcats.

The Bulls now sit in ninth in the table and head coach Mick Potter is looking for his side to get back into the top eight.

He told the club's official website: "If you lose the previous week it makes it more important to get a win.

"The two points can slip through your fingers very quickly, so we need to grasp those.

"If we lose another couple we will slip further out of the eight and we want to get back in there and hold our place."

Potter has targeted Danny Orr and Rangi Chase as the Tigers' key men.

He added: "Most of their play goes through their halves; Danny Orr and Rangi Chase and they are the guys to be watched and ultimately all the big plays go through them

"They have a good pack of forwards that test your line. They run good lines and keep coming at you and then you have (Craig) Huby with his offloads.

"They have a good mix up front and a couple of good outside backs that can score tries."

Team news

Matt Diskin, Craig Kopczak, Elliott Kear and Chev Walker are out for the Bulls after sustaining injuries in the derby defeat by Leeds, while Adrian Purtell suffered a heart attack after the match but has since recovered sufficiently to leave hospital.

Ian Sibbit, Adam O'Brien, Shaun Ainscough, Phil Joseph and Tom Olbison return in their place.

Castleford have utility back Ryan McGoldrick available after serving a two-match ban and regular Josh Griffin also returns after sitting out the derby defeat by Wakefield.

Making way for the pair are the two non-playing members of last weekend's squad, Ryan Hudson and Jake Emmitt.

Bulls squad: Ainscough, Addy, Bateman, Burgess, Elima, Gale, Hargreaves, Jeffries, Joseph, Kearney, L'Estrange, Lulia, Manuokafoa, O'Brien, Olbison, Platt, Pryce, Sibbit, Whitehead

Tigers squad: Owen, Youngquest, Dixon, Griffin, Chase, Orr, Huby, Ferres, Walker, Jones, Milner, Mitchell, Jackson, Millington, Holmes, Massey, McGoldrick, Thompson, Williams
