MATTY BLYTHE says revenge is not on the cards this weekend, as he and his Bradford Bulls team-mates travel to the Halliwell Jones Stadium to face his former club.
The one-time Warrington Wolves star, who agreed a permanent deal with the Provident Stadium outfit last term, claims the Bulls' focus must be fixed on producing a performance and not setting the record straight.
The Wolves sent Bradford out of the Tetley's Challenge Cup at the quarter-final stage earlier this month, though Blythe insists that is the last thing on the players' minds.
“We did not perform to the best of our ability on the day, so we are not looking for revenge as much as an 80-minute performance,” said 25-year-old Blythe, who is proudly being sponsored by Smith Harrison.
“It was not nice to go out of the cup and especially not in the manner in which we did, two games from Wembley.
“But we need to focus on ourselves and we need to come up with a good performance, especially if we want to start picking up points on the Super League ladder.
“It has been a tough couple of weeks all round but we are training well and working hard for each other. It is just mistakes and lapses in concentration which are costing us out on the field.”
Sunday's 3.00pm clash bears special significance for Blythe, as the centre prepares to walk out at the Halliwell Jones Stadium for the first time since his move to the Bulls in 2013.
He missed the corresponding fixture, last season, through injury.
“I do not feel I have a point to prove going back to Warrington,” added Blythe.
“I had some great times there but my only focus is putting in a performance to help Bradford.
“I am enjoying my rugby here and I just want to contribute to a positive result this weekend.”
Tickets for Sunday's game are now available, priced at £19.50 (adults) and £13.50 (concessions).
