Potter hoping Broncos eye up Challenge Cup


Bradford coach Mick Potter is hoping London Broncos will have one eye on their Challenge Cup tie with Huddersfield.

Bradford travel to Brisbane Road, the home of Leyton Orient FC, to take on the Broncos. Potter hopes Rob Powell’s side will still have their forthcoming quarter final match in the back of their minds, giving the Bulls an advantage.

Potter said: “I am hoping they will have one eye on their Challenge Cup game next week.  I don’t know that but I am hoping it’s going to be the case and we can get the two points.”

Bradford are realistically eyeing up a top eight play off position for the end of the season. It is a position that has eluded the Bulls for the past three seasons, last making the play offs in 2008. 

Potter understands the importance of winning games against sides like London, and insists his side are still striving for a perfect match performance.

Potter said: “Every game is one we need to win and everyone that slips past makes it more important for the next one, so we want to win this one.

“I think we are still improving and I think we have shown some signs that we can do some good things.  We defend very well but we keep coming up with some poor errors that we need to eradicate from our game.  

“I understand that there are plays we have to make in pressure situations but we want more of those to come off than go against us. We have some very good players on the edge that we need to get the ball to more often as well as some good middle people who can speed the ruck up for us and push through them.”
