FEATHERSTONE Rovers can be forgiven for being on a revenge mission considering how close their last contest was with the Bulls.

Just one point was the difference when the two teams met at Odsal in then opening round of Championship fixtures on February 3.

Bulls's 17-16 victory came courtesy of a Dane Chisholm drop goal 11 minutes from time.

If there wasn't much between the two teams that day, despite tomorrow's clash being in the cup, there is little between them in the league so far this season.

Just two points and two places separate the sides after nine games, with the Odsal outfit in the lead at the moment.

Rovers have won four of their opening nine games this term.

Ryan Carr's side also look to be depleted for tomorrow's visit to Bradford.

They are set to be missing the trio of Watson Boas, Thompson Teteh or Conor Carey for the fifth round tie.

Boas and Teteh both came off injured in Rovers' 38-14 fourth-round success over Swinton Lions last month. Carey has been sidelined for most of this season so far with a hand injury.

Featherstone are also are unlikely to have any players made available by dual-reg partners, Super League side Leeds Rhinos.

The Colliers go into the cup clash looking to bounce back from a low-scoring defeat in France last Saturday. They crashed to an 8-2 loss at Toulouse Olympique. The match in the south of France saw Josh Walters make his return from injury and Jorge Richardson handed his Betfred Championship debut.

Ben Reynolds scored his side's only points of the contest

Rovers are also behind Bulls in the tale of the tape for cup victories. They have won the Challenge Cup three times; in 1967, 1973 and 1983. Meanwhile, Bulls have lifted the cup five times; in 1944, 1947, 1949, 2000 and 2003.

But Rovers have a good recent record against the Bulls, winning six of the last 10 games between the teams, dating back to a 24-16 victory at Odsal on February 15, 1995.

Carr's men will look to be in Monday night's cup sixth round draw, but will also look forward to an action-packed Easter schedule with games against York City Knights and Toronto Wolfpack in the Championship.
