Kingstone Press Championship Preview: Bradford Bulls v Halifax

Following consecutive wins over Workington Town Bradford Bulls coach James Lowes was pleased with the way his team had responded to his criticism.

“I was critical of some of the things we did the previous week because I thought we could we have been better,” he said.

“I thought we did a decent job defensively and our kicking game was solid in the first half, when we pinned them down into the corners.”

Prop Adam Sidlow, who missed last week’s game is expected to return against Halifax on Good Friday.

Halifax coach Richard Marshall felt his side were a little unlucky to come away from London Broncos without the points.

“On reflection I thought we were the better team on the day,” he said.

“I thought our boys performed really well. We probably just need to improve our decision making at vital times in the game but you’ve got to credit London, they capitalised and took their chances.

His side will be looking to bounce back in their derby match with Bradford Bulls.

“It will be great for the club to be involved in these type of games again,” he said.

“We’ve got an opportunity to get rid of the disappointment from last week again against tough, full-time opposition.

“It’s a tough start to our Easter programme but it’s something we’re not afraid of and we’re looking forward to.”
