Bradford will be looking forward to playing in front of their own fans again when they welcome Salford to Odsal Stadium on Easter Monday.

The Bulls had just one home fixture in the month of March, thrashing Hull KR 34-12 in round seven of the 2013 Super League season.

Since then they have experienced mixed fortunes on the road, losing to Catalan Dragons in Perpignan before grabbing an 18-18 draw against Leeds in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Substitute Adam Sidlow scored a last-gasp try and Jamie Foster added the conversion as Francis Cummins' side recorded their second draw of the campaign at Headingley on Thursday.

Chev Walker picked up a couple of knocks in that game against his former club and is not included in Bradford's 19-man squad to face the City Reds.

Matty Blythe is also sidelined, so Cummins has called up Adam O'Brien and Jobe Murphy. Elliott Whitehead is set to make his 100th appearance for the Yorkshire club if he is selected in the final 17.

Shock triumph

Salford, meanwhile, make the trip across the Pennines boosted by their shock 21-20 triumph over high-flying Huddersfield on Good Friday.

Loan signing Lee Gaskell marked his debut for the Reds with a try as the Reds turned the formbook upside down, the result meaning they moved off the bottom of the standings.

They have yet to register a win on the road in 2013, however, with their best result on their travels so far being a 23-23 draw at Wakefield in round six.

Coach Alan Hunte has recalled Adam Walne from a loan spell at Oldham with Ashley Gibson ruled out due to a hamstring problem picked up in the Giants game.

Bradford: Donaldson, Sidlow, Langley, Manuokafoa, Bateman, Diskin, Kearney, Scruton, L'Estrange, Purtell, Lulia, Whitehead, Kear, Sammut, Addy, Olbison, Murphy, O'Brien, Foster.

Salford: Broughton, Gaskell, Foran, Jewitt, Ashurst, Dixon, Wild, Godwin, Nero, Boyle, James, Neal, Fages, Sneyd, Owen, Griffin, Murphy, Okanga-Ajwang, A. Walne
