Johnson, Sheriffe, Bridge in 21-man squad

UTILITY back Kyran Johnson, who hasn’t played since a heavy Challenge Cup defeat at Widnes Vikings in February last year, is included in Oldham’s provisional 21 for Sunday’s clash with third-placed Bradford Bulls at Bower Fold.

Experienced prop Jode Sheriffe, whose only other appearances were in pre-season, is also recalled to the 21, as is Irish international Danny Bridge, who has missed the last two games because of a knee injury.

They come in for John Hutchings and the injured Declan Gregory and Tommy Brierley.

Squad: D Abram, J Abram, Barran, Bent, Bridge, Charnock, Dupree, Fletcher, Green, Hartley, Holcroft, Ince, Johnson, Kirk, Langtree, Nelmes, Owen, Pick, Reilly, Roberts, Sheriffe.

The injured list includes Ben Heaton, Dave Hewitt, Phil Joy, Jack Spencer as well as Brierley and Gregory.

This is Oldham’s first 21-man squad to be announced since the renowned Brian McDermott, the most successful coach in Super League history, joined the club four days ago in a coaching consultancy role.

Bradford boss John Kear, another big name in rugby league, has an injury list that includes star half-back Danny Brough plus Billy Jowitt, Jordan Lilley, Jack Sanderson, Matty Dawson-Jones and Levy Nzoungou.

London-born Joe Keys, who has played for Ireland, has been signed on short-term loan to replace Brough, returning to the club where he played in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Playing at stand-off, he was man of the match in last week’s win against Batley Bulldogs, but he will miss the injured Lilley, who also had a big game against Bulldogs as his half-back partner.

Bradford (from): Brown, Burton, Crossley, Doyle, England, B Evans, R Evans, Flanagan, Fleming, Foggin-Johnston, Gallager, Hallas, Hamlett, Keys, Murphy, Oakes, Pickersgill, Race, Scurr, Rooks, Walker. 

Tickets for round one of a fabulous sporting Sunday — Oldham Rugby v Bradford followed by THAT football final later in the day —can be purchased online via our ticketing page until the cut-off point at noon on Sunday.

The game is also streamed on Our League, free to Oldham season-ticket holders, and only £4.95 for everyone else if purchased before midnight Saturday
