Yeaman back for Bradford match

Hull centre Kirk Yeaman is set to return to the Airlie Birds line-up ahead of the play-offs.

Yeaman, 28, has been missing in recent weeks with ankle ligament damage and had been targeting a return in Saturday’s game against Widnes, but wasn’t risked by head coach Peter Gentle.

He is now likely to line-up against Bradford a week on Saturday, looking to add to his 145 tries for the club, in his testimonial year.

However, two of Yeaman’s team-mates are doubts for the match against the Bulls. Richard Whiting picked up a foot injury in the win over Catalan in Round 24, while there are fears that winger Tom Lineham may have broke his ankle in a collision with Cameron Phelps during last weekend’s defeat at Widnes.
