North Wales Crusaders players have been urged to play without fear when they visit Bradford Bulls on Saturday.

With his players refreshed after a two-week fixture break, coach Anthony Murray takes his side to face the league leaders who have 10 wins from 11 this term.

Murray insists that all of the pressure is on John Kear's Bulls and that the Wrexham club can travel without the burden of expectation.

He said: "There's no pressure on us going to Bradford, who are a full-time outfit and are the favourites to get promotion.

"But that's the challenge and our players should enjoy going up against full-time opposition and showing what they can do without any fear.

"We'll certainly go there with that in mind, because as a coach you want your players to e challenged and if going up against your opposite number, who's a full-time rugby league player doesn't motivate you then nothing will get you up for a game.

"We just want to go there and give a good account of ourselves and the he only pressure on us is to compete and be at our best."

The Cru returned to winning ways with a 42-6 success against Coventry last time out, which made it six points from their last four games.

Tries from Tommy Johnson (2), Joe Lyons, Dale Bloomfield, Aaron Moore and a brace from impressive Widnes Vikings loanee Ollie Ashall cemented a resounding victory.

The club's vociferous home support showed their appreciation for a much improved attacking display with raucous applause at the full-time whistle.

And Murray says the morale-boosting success, coupled with their impressive performances against the likes of Whitehaven and Doncaster, should instil confidence among his side.

He added: "The fans needed something to cheer about because we haven't been brilliant at home. I think we showed glimpses of what we're capable of and plenty of positives to take into this weekend.

"Just like any other team in this division, Bradford aren't unbeatable. That's why the league's so competitive and it's the better for it.

"Obviously, they will go into the game as favourites with the experience they've got in that squad and the a coach in John Kear who's been there and done it all before

"I've no doubt that he'll have all of his players well-drilled and up for the game. But we won't mind that and will give it everything we've got with our squad in good shape before the game."

Saturday's other League One games see West Wales host Hemel Stags and Hunslet visit London Skolars.
