Bradford will be looking to move one step closer to securing their play-off place against Hull FC on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.

The Bulls are one point clear of the in-form Wakefield Wildcats with two Super League games left in the regular season.

However, their East Yorkshire opponents will be no pushovers and success for Peter Gentle's men could see them move level on points with champions Leeds Rhinos.

Huddersfield are only two points behind Hull and the visitors will have no thoughts about turning up at Odsal to make up the numbers.

Olivier Elima returns to the Bulls' 19-man squad for the final home game of the regular season.

Injuries

The France captain replaces John Bateman after the rookie back rower sustained a shoulder injury in the recent win at Huddersfield.

Michael Platt has undergone minor knee surgery and is replaced in the squad by ex-Crusaders man Jarrod Sammut.

Hull will be without forward Richard Whiting after he fractured a bone in his foot ruling him out for the rest of the season.

Youngster Tom Lineham will play no further part this year while Sam Moa and Danny Tickle are also out through injury.

Hull were embarrassed 46-16 to lowly Widnes last time out and director of rugby Shaun McRae is looking for the club to make amends.

"This is a real opportunity to take up that challenge and perform well against a side in great form at the minute," he told the Hull Daily Mail.

"The Bulls have been tremendous and are trying to get in the top eight, while we want to finish as high as possible and make sure we get a home tie in the play-offs.

"It was a horrid day at the office last time out, but we've moved on and this is a chance to show that in front of the television cameras."

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

Hull squad: Aspinwall, T. Briscoe, Crooks, Green, Foster, Heremaia, Horne, Houghton, Lynch, Manu, McGoldrick, Nicklas, O'Meley, Pitts, Seymour, Turner, Watts, Westerman, Yeaman
