THE build-up to yesterday’s clash saw James Lowes call for further improvement from his side and the Bradford head coach believes the Bulls delivered in their 36-6 victory over Workington Town yesterday.
A fast start saw Jay Pitts, Jake Mullaney and Danny Williams all cross the whitewash during the first half, as the hosts rallied in difficult conditions at the Provident Stadium, Odsal.
The visitors hit back after the interval but Gaskell cemented his man-of-the-match performance with a try of his own, sealing Bradford's fifth-straight success, as Adam Henry and Williams completed braces.
It was a second win recorded in as many weeks against Workington, the side the Bulls dumped out of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup in round four.
“I was critical of some of the things we did last week but thought we did better this time around,” said Lowes, who is sponsored in memory of Joyce Dobby.
“We were much improved defensively, meaning Workington did not get much out of us.
“And I thought our kicking game was solid, particularly during the first half.
“We let them off the hook at times in terms of errors and penalties conceded but, generally, I thought our performance was better.
“The conditions were tough but you cannot let that get in the way of a performance. The errors we did make were not caused by the weather.
“I thought everyone had a good yesterday. We did well as a team.”
Lowes’ men enter Friday Night Fight Night – The Battle For West Yorkshire, the eagerly-anticipated derby tie against Halifax, hoping to extend their winning win.
Their Calderdale opponents, meanwhile, enter having narrowly lost out to London Broncos last time out.
“I played in many games against Halifax during my time here as a player and they were always fantastic contests,” added Lowes.
“As a player, you want to play in the big games and I am sure the boys will be up for the test.
“Bragging rights are at stake and I know our supporters will turn out in force for what will be a brilliant spectacle for everyone concerned.”

ADAM Henry and Danny Williams each bagged braces as James Lowes’ in-form Bradford Bulls cruised to victory over Workington Town – for the second time in as many weeks.
In a match played on a rain-drenched Provident Stadium pitch, the hosts ran in three successive scores early on as the Bulls threatened a repeat of the 74-6 rout recorded in round four of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup last Sunday.
The Cumbrian outfit steadied the ship, however, with the testing conditions playing their part in an error-strewn first period.
Conditions worsened after the break and the visitors enjoyed a spell of dominance, before back-to-back tries from the home side thwarted any possibility of a comeback.
With Lowes’ men firmly in the ascendancy, Henry and Williams both bagged their second scores to seal a fifth-straight triumph.

DANNY Addy, Jean-Philippe Baile and Dan Fleming will all return to the fray this afternoon, as James Lowes' Bradford Bulls go in search of a fifth-straight victory.
Utility forward Addy is back in action after being deemed unfit to take part in last weekend's victory over Workington Town in round four of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.
He comes in for Lucas Walshaw as Baile is back from injury, having shaken off a hamstring problem.
Dan Fleming, meanwhile, takes his spot on the interchage bench, with Vila Halafihi missing out from the 19-man squad named on Friday.

DESPITE watching his side record an emphatic 74-6 success over Workington Town last time out, head coach James Lowes is hoping his Bradford Bulls can right their wrongs when the Cumbrians visit the Provident Stadium tomorrow – for the second time in as many weeks.
Lowes says his players were left “disappointed” with their performance and that they are hoping to up the ante this weekend, as they return to Kingstone Press Championship action.
Bradford's success last Sunday saw them safely through into round five of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup, where they will face Hull Kingston Rovers.
Though with his focus now back on regular-season action, with a quarter of the campaign almost over, Lowes is calling for his in-form Bulls to further improve as they go in search of a fifth-successive victory.
“We did some things that were not too good last Sunday and have focused on those over the past few days,” said Lowes, who is sponsored in memory of Joyce Dobby.
“We are approaching the game in the same manner and hopefully we can get a similar result.
“Workington will have one or two different players in, with the dual-registration boys arriving from Wigan, but we are only focusing on areas in which we can improve.
“It was not a complete performance, so the boys are certainly on their toes.
“Some of them were sat in the dressing room after last weekend's game disappointed by how they had played, even though they had won by 70 points!
“But that is what the team is all about. The players are hard on themselves because they are striving to improve.
“Hopefully, they will get what they want tomorrow and we will come away with another win.”
