Few would have predicted Brian Noble's men to be in this position with two losses from two games and indeed Bradford are seeking to avoid equalling their worst Super League run of three successive defeats which occurred mid-season in 1998.

The Warriors have a home record to be proud of which stretches back to July 2003, a total of 24 home matches without losing.

Wigan will give a debut to prop Jerome Guisset who signed this week and both Brett Dallas and Danny Sculthorpe are included in the 18 after injury ruled them out at Wakefield. The Bulls meanwhile, have Full Back Michael Withers back in contention, he has been sidelined since last years Grand Final.
