Super League: Bradford Bulls v Warrington Wolves preview
Last Updated: 30/06/13 3:01pm
Chev Walker: Back to boost the Bulls
Bradford Bulls host Warrington Wolves in Super League on Sunday aiming to halt a four-match losing run.
Francis Cummins' side have slipped to ninth in Super League following successive losses to Huddersfield, Hull KR, St Helens and Widnes.
Cummins believes his side have hit rock bottom and the only way is up - if they work hard enough.
He told the club's official website: "It's just about working hard, looking at some of the positive things we are doing and trying to address the negatives.
"There are signs that we are improving but the most disappointing thing is that we are making the same mistakes every week.
"You have to keep going and working hard and that ball that doesn't bounce for you will happen.
"We have hit rock bottom but we have to stick together and work hard for each other and we will come out of it."
Bradford are boosted by the return of back-row forward Chev Walker, who has missed the last two games with a knee injury, and goal-kicking winger Jamie Foster, who has recovered from a ruptured pectoral muscle.
Tom Olbison, Jarrod Sammut and Jamie Langley are still on the injury list.
Warrington are without leading tryscorer Joel Monaghan and England internationals Richie Myler and Chris Hill.
Rhys Williams takes over on the wing, with Stefan Ratchford set to move to scrum-half and Mike Cooper recalled to the front row.
Centre Chris Bridge is poised for his first appearance for three months and James Laithwaite and Tyrone McCarthy are also in the squad.
Bradford squad Addy, Bateman, Blythe, Diskin, Donaldson, Evans, Foster, Gale, Kear, Kearney, L'Estrange, Lulia, Manuokafoa, O'Brien, Platt, Purtell, Scruton, Sidlow, Walker.
Warrington squad: Atkins, C Bridge, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Grix, Higham, Hodgson, Laithwaite, McCarthy, M Monaghan, Morley, Ratchford, C Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Williams, Wood.
