Bradford will aim to put more off-field drama to the back of their minds when they take on Castleford in the Monday night Stobart Super League fixture at Odsal on Monday.
Still coming to terms with the heart attack suffered by centre Adrian Purtell, the Bulls saw the threat of administration re-surface over the weekend when it was revealed the club's financial worries are even worse than initially portrayed.
Of more pressing concern for the players is the future of Purtell, 27, who was released from hospital on Wednesday and is expected to attend Sunday's game, with coach Mick Potter saying: "He's been given a programme for exercise and his parents have come over (from Australia) so he'll have to take them somewhere."
He went on: "Everyone is concerned for Adrian's health. It puts it all into perspective.
"It shows how quickly things can turn on you. It's a bit of a life check really, that rugby league is not that important. Your health is the most important thing. It's just a game. All of a sudden, his career could be put in jeopardy by something that seems small yet could be life-changing."
Meanwhile, Potter has recalled Ian Sibbit, Adam O'Brien, Shaun Ainscough, Phil Joseph and Tom Olbison to offset the loss through injury of Chev Walker, Craig Kopczak, Matt Diskin and Elliot Kear as well as Purtell.
Sibbit has not played since damaging his shoulder at Castleford in February, O'Brien has yet to feature for the first team this season due to an ankle injury and Joseph is also fit after an ankle problem.
Castleford have utility back Ryan McGoldrick available after completing a two-match suspension.
