Bradford Bulls will be hoping to inflict more misery on rivals the Leeds Rhinos when the two meet in Magic Weekend in Manchester on Sunday.

Mick Potter's men are currently one point and one place above the champions in the Stobart Super League table, although the Rhinos do have a game in hand.

Bradford upset Leeds earlier in the season when they pulled off a 12-4 victory over Brian McDermott's men with over 20,000 fans in attendance at Odsal.

The Bulls come into the game on the back of a 20-20 draw with Salford last week while Leeds have lost back-to-back games in league action after following up their loss at Hull FC by going down on home soil to St Helens on Monday.

Bradford coach Potter is boosted by a trio of returnees for the clash against their illustrious neighbours with Brett Kearney, Adrian Purtell and John Bateman all back.

Kearney (Achilles) and Purtell (hamstring) have both been declared fit whilst Bateman has completed his suspension for a dangerous tackle on Brett Hodgson in the Warrington cup tie.

Drop out

They replace Jamie Langley, who has an Achilles injury, and Shaun Ainscough and Tom Olbison, who both drop out of the 19-man squad.

Rhinos boss McDermott makes one change to his squad that went down 31-18 to Saints with Ben Jones-Bishop returning.

The winger comes in for Weller Hauraki while utility man Carl Ablett is set to make his 150th appearance for the club on Sunday.

Ryan Hall needs twelve points to reach 500 for Leeds Rhinos. Hall's total of 488 has been reached by scoring 122 tries in 141 games for the club since 2007.

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

Leeds squad: Webb, Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Hardaker, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, L. Smith, Delaney, Bailey, Clarkson, Griffin, Moore, Lunt
