Stevo believes that Bradford's worrying injury list will count against them when they face Hull KR.

Bradford showed a lot courage last week in their loss to Warrington. They have been decimated by injuries and are really battling to deal with that which is always going to cause problems.
I feel that they need to make more of what they have got though and for me that means giving Matt Disking more time on the field.
I know Bulls coach Mick Potter like to interchange Diskin with Heath L'Estrange but they have a lot more go forward when Diskin is on the field and controlling things in and around the tackle area.
Don't get me wrong, L'Estrange is a good player but I really feel that he could be utilised elsewhere.
While Bradford are a bit weak out wide they also seem to be lacking some firepower in the forwards which I think is more of a worry - especially against Hull.
Hull KR adapted well last weekend to the poor conditions and fully deserved their win over Widnes. They may have stopped the Vikings getting over the whitewash last week but I think their defence will have to work much harder against Bradford.
They will welcome the return of Con Mika to the forwards - I can really see him and the likes of Scott Taylor and Clint newton making some big inroads into the Bulls forwards. This is where this game will be won and lost and I am not sure Bradford have the players to match Hull KR.
STAR MAN: Matt Diskin. He need to be given the nod and allowed to control this game for Bradford. They really need his intelligence and his skill if they want to win this game
STEVO SAYS: I think Hull KR's forwards will prove too much will just squeeze past the Bulls but I expect it to be very tight.
