Potter targeting three wins in play-off hunt

Bradford coach Mick Potter says his side must win their last three games to earn a place in the Super League play-offs.

With three games to play, the Bulls, despite their six point deduction, are level on 21 points with Hull KR in 8th and 9th spot, and take on Huddersfield at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday.

Potter said: “I think it’s fair to say that (needing to win every game). It’s a tough ask but it’s not impossible and quite within our abilities but we’ll start with the first hurdle and that’s Huddersfield this Sunday.

“We can’t focus on what other sides do and we just have to keep doing what we have been doing.  The players are confident in their ability and that’s rightfully so because they are quite capable of winning three games but we have to make sure we just focus on beating Huddersfield as they are a difficult side to beat.”

Bradford host Hull next Sunday, before a difficult trip to Catalan on the final weekend of the regular season to potentially determine their play-off fate.

The biggest twist in the play-off race could come this Sunday, when Hull KR host Wakefield, who themselves are only one point behind the Bulls on 20 points.

Rovers face a tough game against Wigan in their next outing, before finishing off their season with a trip to London.

Wakefield, meanwhile, host strugglers Widnes on September 2nd and then travel to Salford for their final game.

At present, Hull KR hold the final play-off spot with a points difference of +37, some 94 points better off than Bradford, while Wakefield are -144.
