The Airlie Birds were beaten 42-16 two weeks ago, and Pitts says the team are eager to make amends after that result.
He said: “Everybody was really hurt by how we played against Widnes. It was unacceptable and we know we are a much better side than we showed that day.
“We wanted to go into a short break on the back of a good win, but instead it’s just been two weeks of hurt. It’s felt like a long wait to try to put it right but that’s what we need to do against Bradford on Saturday.”
Pitts knows that the Bulls will prove to be a difficult opponent to face, and understands they are in form on the back of their off field problems which surrounds the club.
He said: “They are playing with plenty of emotion at the moment, they are finding a reason to play well and win games and we have to do the same. They will be fired up, it’s their last home game of the year and they’ll come out all guns blazing.”
Pitts made a switch to the KC Stadium from Leeds earlier this season.
