Bradford coach Francis Cummins is starting to look to the future after gaining positive news on the club's bid to secure new owners.
Bradford coach Francis Cummins has described the situation at the Bulls as "anarchy".
Bradford Bulls are facing the threat of a second points deduction in two years.
A win for the Bradford Bulls at Hull FC tonight will put them back on zero points in Super League.
The Bulls were deducted six points after entering administration for the second time in two years, but after consecutive wins over Wakefield and the London Broncos they are now just two points from getting back on an even keel.
Head Coach Francis Cummins says the team need to focus on winning games:
Hull will give a debut to former Wigan back-rower Chris Tuson following his recovery from a neck problem while prop Liam Watts makes his first appearance of the season after recovering from a knee injury but former Bradford forward Garreth Carvell is still sidelined with an ankle strain.
Bradford include their latest loan signings, stand-off Liam Sutcliffe and utility forward Greg Burke. Elliot Kear is set to start on the wing in place of Luke George, who misses out with concussion.
Wigan forward Greg Burke has become the latest player to shore up Bradford's depleted squad.
The 21-year-old prop, who was in the 27-strong Wigan squad that went down under for the World Club Challenge last month and played in Sunday's 46-24 Super League win over Wakefield, has joined the Bulls on a month's loan.
He is the fourth loan signing - and the second in two days - for Bradford, who have lost three players to other clubs during their financial crisis.
Burke, who made 17 appearances last season for his home-town club, is set to go straight into the Bulls squad for Friday's game at Hull, along with other loan recruits Liam Sutcliffe (Leeds), Anthony Mullally (Huddersfield) and Danny Bridge (Warrington).
Although Bradford are in administration and remain in "special measures", they are permitted to make loan signings as long as they can prove they have the cash flow to fund them.
Bradford Bulls have signed Leeds Rhinos' rising star Liam Sutcliffe on a short term deal.
The 19 year old scored seven tries in 18 appearances last season and is set to play a key role for the troubled Bulls.
“Liam is a hugely-talented player and we are delighted to have him on board,” said Bradford boss Francis Cummins.
"Our current predicament is being well documented and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Leeds Rhinos for offering us a helping hand."
Bradford Bulls front-rower Nick Scruton is to leave the club to join Wakefield Trinity Wildcats for an undisclosed fee agreed by the club's administrators. The 29-year-old prop has decided to move away from the Bulls ending a six year tenure with the club.
" It is obviously hugely disappointing to lose a player to a rival club and this is definitely not a wish of Bradford Bulls. This is the nature of the situation we find ourselves in.
"I've spoken at great lengths to head coach Francis Cummins and football manager Stuart Duffy who inform me there is a positive feel in camp - despite the current predicament. And both of them are not willing to allow the departure of a player to affect the mood, ahead of this weekend's game.
Administration is difficult at the best of times, but we are getting on with the task at hand. For sure we are vulnerable at the moment but we are working hard to ensure the squad remains intact."

A London-based businessman is to renew his bid to buy the Bradford Bulls.
Richard Lamb is one of two potential bidders for the club, which was thrown into crisis yesterday when it was docked six points for going into administration for the second time in 18 months. That penalty prompted the consortium that had already agreed a buy-out to withdraw.
Today staff and players have been reacting to to the latest setback to the club that was once the pride of Super League.
John Shires reports.
London-based businessman Richard Lamb will renew his bid to buy Bradford Bulls after the crisis-torn Super League club fell back into administration on a day of high drama.
The decision of the Rugby Football League to impose the maximum six-point deduction on the club for breaching their insolvency regulations for the second time in two years prompted the prospective new owners to walk out.
Mark Moore, chairman of Bradford Bulls 2014 Ltd which agreed a sale with the administrators last Friday, withdrew his offer and launched a scathing attack on the RFL for placing the club in special measures, thereby preventing them from signing any more players.
The RFL hit back with an unusually strong response, blaming Moore's failure to go through with a £300,000 offer to previous owner Omar Khan for the club's latest crisis.
That left Leeds-based accountant David Wilson running the club once more but the RFL remain confident of finding new buyers.
Lamb, who was involved in rugby league commercially during the 2013 World Cup, confirmed he is still keen to acquire the club and has offered to provide staff to help organise Sunday's home game against London Broncos.
Bradford chief executive and former captain Robbie Hunter-Paul will represent the club at Wednesday's Super League meeting when he is expected to provide an update.
Moore claimed in his farewell tirade that the points deductions means relegation for the Bulls is "almost a certainty" but Lamb says he has no issue with the sanctions and insists that a drop into the Championship would not be fatal.
The Bradford Bulls' future has been thrown into doubt again after an offer to buy the club was withdrawn in protest at a six point deduction for going into administration for the second time in two years.
The man behind the proposed buyout, current chairman Mark Moore, says he has been forced into the decision because the points deduction makes relegation from Super League a virtual certainty.
Moore , who has now resigned along with his fellow directors, has accused the Rugby Football League of poor leadership. But the RFL's Chief Operating Officer Ralph Rimmer says they are playing by the rules.
