JOHN Kear believes Bull's stay at the Tetleys Stadium will get better as the season progresses.

It was announced back in August last year that Bradford would play their 2020 and 2021 home league matches at the home of the Dewsbury Rams.

In their two pre-seasons games where they have featured at the formerly named Crown Flatt, Kear's side have picked up a defeat and a win.

Sunday's 6-4 victory against York City Knights was abruptly called to a halt with less than 10 minutes left due to a shortage of light after an issue with the national grid issue caused a half-lit pitch.

Although, Kear was disappointed with the early finish, he thinks as the weeks go by the club will adjust to their current home.

He said: "It will get better week on week.

"The dressing room was a lot better and the logistical aspect was better too.

"It would be nice if we had all the lights on but its up to the national grid, not Dewsbury.

"Next week it will feel more like home for us then London no doubt."

The Bulls boss was pleased that his squad came out of the match unscathed after losing Sam Barlow last week to a broken arm.

Kear provided injury updates on a few of his key players while heaping praise on the dual-registered Josh Bowden and Alex Stephenson first appearances in pre-season.

He said: "It is good that there has been no further injuries today just bumps and bruises.

"Connor Farrell we don't expect to have back until the end of March, early April.

"Sam Hallas will be fit, he could have played today but we didn’t want to risk it.

"Engy (Anthony England) was weak with his illness so he had a real touch conditioning session yesterday for his fitness work.

"We have had a scan and an x-ray and he (Sam Barlow) is now seeing a specialist.

"It is Sam's arm and he will decide what to do with it, he is very keen to play.

Kear added: "I spoke with Lee (Radford), three players were going to come initially because they needed some game time, two of them picked up slight strains on the 4g training pitch they have got.

"Josh (Bowden) came, his application and attitude was first class, he showed what a good professional he is by contributing for us.

"He (Stephenson) was outstanding, he took the high balls and that tackle he made in the corner was fantastic."
