ASHLEY Gibson is set to make his 200th career appearance after Bradford Bulls announced their squad for the 1895 Cup tie at Barrow.

Kear has revealed a much-changed list, with a host of first-team regulars missing due to the quick turn-around from Sunday's Coral Challenge Cup loss at the hands of Halifax.

The 18-man squad for Wednesday's Second Round match includes 32-year-old Gibson, as well as Jon Magrin who returns to Bradford after a one-month loan spell at London Skolars ended recently.

Gibson signed for the Bulls in the summer of 2017 from Wakefield Trinity.

The winger-come-centre has played 29 times for the side since, and last turned out for the Odsal outfit in the narrow 14-12 Challenge Cup win at Keighley Cougars.

Colton Roche could be given the chance to shine, having found playing-time limited since making his loan deal permanent last month.

Hear what he had to say about that in May...

A number of youngsters have also made the list.

Alix Stephenson could double his appearance tally to two, after a baptism of fire in his debut against Featherstone Rovers eight days ago.

A host of Under-19 players, including Cameron Berry, Ryan Butterworth and Ebon Scurr, could also make their senior bows.

They may be inspired by fellow squad member Thomas Doyle, who grabbed a double on his debut as the Bulls beat Rochdale 52-16.

There's a strong local feel to the squad as well, with 11 of the 18 homegrown.

The full list is as follows: Cameron Berry, Callum Bustin, Ryan Butterworth, Elliot Culling, Thomas Doyle, Keelan Foster, Bradley Gallagher, Matty Garside, Ashley Gibson, Cobi Green, Evan Hodgson, Jake Lightowler, Jonathan Magrin, Brandon Pickersgill, Joshua Rickett, Colton Roche, Ebon Scurr, Alix Stephenson.
