Bradford just focused on themselves

Bradford coach Francis Cummins isn’t focusing on the clubs around them, as they look to pick up the points to ease their relegation concerns.

They restored parity to their points total with a surprise victory over Warrington a fortnight ago, but back-to-back wins for nearest rivals Wakefield means the Bulls are eight points adrift of safety after 12 games.

Huddersfield are their next opponents, on the second day of the Magic Weekend at the Etihad Stadium.

Cummins said: “I’ve not been focused on Wakefield or any other club. We’ve just got to keep going on with what we’re about. We’ve got to make sure we do our bit first.

“It’s nice that there’s a video ref, because we don’t normally play with that!

“It’s nice to be at a decent stadium with a mixture of fans, so the occasion is good. Logistics is a tough one. It’s OK if you’re in the main changing room, but we never seem to be in there, so we need to deal with that bit.

“There are peripheral things that can take your focus off, like you can watch the previous game a little too long. You probably can’t all sit down in the changing room together. Those things are different, but there’s no excuses, at the end of the day, you’ve got to be right to play when you get out on the field.”

Cummins has doubts over half-back Luke Gale, who tweaked a hamstring in training last Saturday which ruled him out of the 50-0 defeat to St Helens.
