Bottom side Bradford Bulls take on ninth-placed Salford Red Devils in search of a much-needed victory at the Provident Stadium.

Francis Cummins' side swept aside Oldham 60-6 to book their place in the last 16 of Tetley's Challenge Cup last weekend.

"Things finally appear to be heading in the right direction for us and I am confident we can kick on from here," said the Bulls coach.

Meanwhile, the Lancashire outfit arrive with former Bulls, Wales and Great Britain star Iestyn Harris in charge as head coach for the first time.

They head into the clash after a dramatic golden-point drop goal triumph over Hull FC in the Challenge Cup.

Bradford are boosted by the return from injury of captain and skipper Matt Diskin, half-back Lee Gaskell and front-rower Adam Sidlow, while on-loan prop Anthony Mullally is back after being Cup-tied against Oldham.

Salford will give a debut to hooker Logan Tomkins following his arrival on loan from Wigan, while new coach Harris calls up second rower Matty Ashurst in place of the injured Steve Rapira.

Bradford Bulls squad: Donaldson, Henry, Wood, Purtell, Gale, Kear, Fakir, Walker, Sidlow, Ferguson, Foster, Blythe, Diskin, Manuokafoa, Addy, Gaskell, Mullally, Kearney, O'Brien

Salford Red Devils squad: Gleeson, Chase, Lee, Tasi, Hock, Smith, Morley, Mullaney, Johnson, Sa'u, Meli, J. Walne, A. Walne, Hansen, Tomkins, Fages, Ashurst, Puletua, McPherson
