Matt Diskin, Jamie Foster and Brett Kearney are all set to return to action for Bradford when the Bulls entertain Hull FC on Sunday.
The experienced trio were all named in the Bulls’ 19-man squad by head coach James Lowes as the home side look to continue their better form since being hit by relegation last month.
Skipper Diskin has overcome a foot injury, while Kearney is back in the fold after suffering concussion in the Bulls' triumph over Wigan Warriors last month.
The trio replace French international Jamal Fakir, Alex Mellor and Nathan Conroy, who will all miss the First:Utility Super League round twenty-four tie.
Hull FC coach Lee Radford has made two changes to his 19, with Jordan Rankin returning to the Black and Whites side after recovering from a knee injury suffered in the draw with Castleford three weeks ago.
Following surgery on his meniscus ligaments, the Aussie has made a full recovery in time for Sunday, though teammate Aaron Heremaia will miss out after sustaining a similar injury to Rankin, which needs the same treatment.
James Cunningham will slot back in at hooker to replace the New Zealander, whilst Jordan Thompson is the other player to drop out of the 19-man squad.
The Airlie Birds ran out 44-16 winners when the teams met earlier in the season at the KC Stadium and will want to complete the double over Sunday’s opponents in order to keep their slim hopes of a play-off spot alive.
Bulls (from): Addy, Arundel, Baldwinson, Blythe, Diskin, Donaldson, Ferguson, Foster, Gale, Gaskell, Henry, Kear, Kearney, Manuokafoa, O'Brien, Olbison, Pitts, Sidlow, Williams.
Hull FC (from): Abdull, Bowden, Cunningham, Ellis, Green, Hadley, Horne, Houghton, Lineham, Paea, Paleaaesina, Rankin, Sa, Shaul, Talanoa, Watts, Westerman, Whiting, Yeaman.
