Gaskell believes Bradford can beat anyone

Bradford Bulls half-back Lee Gaskell is back to fitness, and is looking forward to tangling with Super League opposition in the Super 8s Qualifiers.

Sidelined since June 7 with a broken jaw, Gaskell believes that the Bulls can claim a spot in Super League once the Qualifiers are completed.

“We’ve got a massive chance because we can beat anyone when you look at the bottom four in Super League,” he told the Telegraph & Argus.

“We certainly respect everyone but I think every team in that middle eight is beatable.

“We’ve just got to believe in ourselves and be confident, but we’ve had a good season when you look at the amount of points we’ve scored.

“We’ve got a good coach in Jimmy and there is no doubt that if we stick to the game-plan then we can beat anyone.

“I look around the changing room and see a lot of experienced players and then younger, up and coming lads such as Adam O’Brien and Alex Mellor.

“There is a good mix and the boys are really digging in for each other.”

Gaskell is now training properly following his injury, but Bulls coach James Lowes has not risked the player heading into a crucial stage of the season.

“I’ve started full contact training but there was no point in risking being sidelined for another eight weeks,” Gaskell explained.

“The Super 8s are just around the corner now and I’m looking forward to getting back out there.”

 The Bulls will face Widnes, Salford, Sheffield and Halifax at home in the Qualifiers, and travel away to Hull KR, Leigh and Wakefield.
