JORDAN Lilley has reminded the Bulls there is so much still to play for in their season.

It is back to Championship business against Batley at Odsal tomorrow after last week’s Challenge Cup quarter-final exit.

John Kear’s side look to arrest a run of three straight league losses which has seen them drop out of the play-off places.

But Lilley insists a top-five finish remains very much up for grabs – and is urging the Bulls to redouble their efforts after the cup woe.

He said: “We wanted to be in the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup but ultimately we want to be competing in Super League again.

“We got beaten at Featherstone last time and lost to Halifax the week before in the Summer Bash. We missed out against teams around us in the table.

“We’re level with Halifax now on 16 points and the next teams up are on 18. There is nothing between us all.

“We’re still pushing for that top five to have that chance of getting back to Super League.”

Lilley, like the rest of the Challenge Cup side, was given the night off in Wednesday's 1895 Cup defeat at Barrow.

But having signed a two-year contract with the aim of restoring the Bulls among the elite once again, he is desperate to regain the momentum for the rest of the campaign.

He added: “How good would it be to see Bradford back in Super League and have 10,000-15,000 back in this stadium or seeing the away end packed with our support?

“That’s why I signed a deal. One of the reasons I wanted to stay here is to be part of the team that takes Bradford back to Super League.

“For me, as a young lad in a pivotal position, I’m trying to ram it home to the lads how important it is to keep picking up these points.

“We can’t afford to be dropping results.

“People talk about finishing fifth this year and finding our feet in this division. But if we can push and have a go then there’s no reason why we can’t be aiming higher.”

Only four points separate York in third with eighth-placed Halifax in the play-off fight.

“Look at Toronto and Toulouse and they are probably going to finish top two now,” said Lilley. “But after that it’s anyone’s game.

“There are a lot of games still to be played and a lot of points to pick up.

“Hopefully we can look to go on a bit of a run now and get some consistency to our game.

“We’ve lost three in a row in the league and need to knuckle down and give a really good account of ourselves.

“We need to show it’s no more than a blip over the last few weeks.”
