Chev Walker and Jamie Foster have been named in Francis Cummins’ Bradford squad to face Warrington Wolves at the Provident Stadium on Sunday.

Walker returns after suffering a knee injury at Hull KR whilst Foster is playing his first game since the Magic Weekend. Tom Olbison, Jarrod Sammut and Jamie Langley are still injured.

The Wolves won the corresponding home fixture earlier this season 32-4 and will be looking for a repeat performance this time out as they follow on from Monday’s memorable win over local rivals Wigan Warriors.

Prediction: Warrington to continue their recent winning run due to their in-form attack.
