Last week’s game against Whitehaven was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, meaning Halifax have had all week to train without having any recovery period to factor into their schedule.
Coach Matt Calland said: “We should be better prepared for the Batley game as a result.”
Jason Walton will not feature on Sunday as he serves the final week of a two-match suspension.
Last week’s 60-6 against Gateshead looked impressive on paper, but Bulldogs coach Karl Harrison was far from impressed.
He said: “We’re a million miles off where we should be with the ball. For whatever reason, we’re not gelling with the ball in hand.
“I’ve set the team and myself really high standards this season. We need to improve ten-fold to compete with Halifax.”
