Bradford coach Francis Cummins is expecting a Wigan backlash when his Bulls side visit the DW Stadium on Friday.
The Warriors have lost back-to-back games in Super League, including last week’s shock 18-4 home reversal at the hands of Castleford.
But Cummins’ side are without a win since May, and have lost their last five games.
He said: “We know we are going to get a backlash early on but if we get a good start we can get them jumping up and down then it can work in our favour.
“Wigan won’t be happy with what they came up with last week but Cas played well and came up with some good plays. If we come up with some good plays and play well than I feel we can beat anyone.
“All sports fans at times and Wigan’s are no different. They have been playing well this season and they are not used to seeing poor performances. If we play well and get the crowd on their backs then it can only benefit us.”
Just over a year ago, the Bulls defeated Wigan on their own patch 30-22 in emotional circumstances, as the future of the club hung in the balance.
They will be desperate to curb their current run of form to re-ignite any hopes of reaching the end of season play-offs for the first time since 2008.
