Bradford coach Mick Potter says it will be a tragedy if Friday turns out to be the last game between the Bulls and local rivals Leeds.
The match itself has been overshadowed by Bradford’s quest for survival, where they need to raise £1m; half of it before kick-off on Friday night.
Potter said: “It would be a tragedy if it were to be the last Bradford V Leeds game. I am desperately hoping that we can sort things out.
“The game is important and it’s important for both teams and that’s why it’s going to be a cracker. I am sure Brian McDermott and his payers are desperate to win after losing a couple and we are wanting the points to push further towards the top eight.
“So you can take away the circumstances because it’s going to be a fantastic game and when you add the fans feelings into account and them buzzing in behind, it just adds to the spice. I’m really looking forward to it.
Earlier today, Bradford confirmed that they had passed the £300,000 mark, with former player Stuart Fielden, now at Wigan, manning the phones at Odsal.
Bulls CEO Ryan Duckett said: “The £300k figure is a significant milestone for the club to reach. We are delighted to have got that far and Pledges are continuing to come in. Pledges had slowed down earlier in the week but momentum has picked up again today and we urge all supporters who haven’t Pledged to make sure they get them in before 5.00pm on Friday ahead of the Leeds game.”
