In this week's Bulls Eye, Bradford Assistant Coach Lee St Hilaire looks ahead to Sunday's Stobart Super League Round 12 game when Huddersfield Giants are the visitors to Odsal.

LEE ST HILAIRE

WHERE DO YOU FEEL THE CLUB IS AT THE MOMENT?

"On the field we are pretty good at the moment. We have built some great momentum and when you look at the Hull game, the Leeds game and the Widnes game, then we were very competitive at Hull and won the other two. To get four points from the Easter fixtures was tremendous for us.

The energy levels from the players have been great we have a very good Conditioning and Physio team that know when to up the intensity and take it back and that has worked for us.

We are using the old cliche 'let's take one game at a time' and just keep on building the momentum we have created over the past few weeks and keep the confidence high. Every week is a different challenge for us."

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HUDDERSFIELD THIS SEASON?

"They are a quality outfit without doubt with some very good players. Nathan Brown and Paul Anderson have done a great job and Ken Davy has played his part as well. They have quality right across the field. They have moved players around this season and they play very direct. They have some big go forward players like Crabtree, Fa'alogo and O'Donnell and on the back of that you have to contain Brough and Robinson and we haven't even started talking about the edges where they have players like Cudjoe, Wardle and George all playing very well.

"We are looking forward to the challenge that they present. We have built some momentum and the squad is very tight knit and I am sure we will present a challenge to them as well. If we play how we can we can do the job."

Mick Potter will name his squad tomorrow but still lacks Hooker Heath L'Estrange, suspended; however Karl Pryce is fit again after sustaining a leg injury against Leeds on Good Friday and could come into the squad as could Chev Walker. Brett Kearney is also fit after missing last week's Challenge Cup game against Doncaster with a foot injury.
