Potter out to change Bulls mindset

Bradford coach Mick Potter has conceded that he needs to change the mindset of his players after going six games without a win in Super League.

The Bulls host Wigan in the Challenge Cup fifth round in front of the BBC cameras on Sunday, with the win over Halifax in the previous round the only time the Bulls have tasted victory since a 24-22 win over Harlequins on April 3.

Potter said: “We have some things that need urgently addressing.

“It’s becoming a bit of a theme that when the opposition score, some heads go down. Well it’s not about what has happened; it’s about how we react to it and what comes next. Having that body language is not good and we are trying to get across to the players that it’s what you do about it that matters.

“It’s about changing that mindset.

“Whether you have conceded or scored; it’s how you react. I think our players are very sensitive at the moment to the fact that we aren’t winning games. It’s not that we aren’t trying; we are trying hard to win every game we go into. We are just not working in the right direction all the time, which is what we have to do.”

Former Catalan coach Potter moved to the Grattan Stadium at the end of last season following a spell at St Helens, but has led the Bulls to just four wins in Super League, leaving them languishing down in 12th position.
