Ian Millward has warned his St Helens team to expect London's impressive home form today, rather than the travel sickness that has undermined the Broncos away performances.

Ian Millward has warned his St Helens team to expect London's impressive home form today, rather than the travel sickness that has undermined the Broncos away performances.

The Broncos have taken some notable scalps at Griffin Park this season, but their away form reached a new low with a 64-6 thrashing at Leeds last weekend.

"They look to be more confident and enterprising at home," Millward said. "If they play like they did against Wigan, we're in for a really tough time."

Rob Purdham, Lee Greenwood and Francis Stephenson are recalled by London to face a Saints line-up that could be vulnerable without Sean Long, Paul Sculthorpe, Jamie Lyon and Ade Gardner. However, Willie Talau returns.

Bradford face a fourth defeat in a row against Huddersfield tomorrow, but will recall Karl Pratt.

Widnes welcome back their captain, Shane Millard, after a six-week absence and Gary Connolly also returns to face Salford. Warrington have Logan Swann and Chris Bridge back to visit Wakefield, who miss Chris Feather and Colum Halpenny. Leigh are without John Duffy, Jason Kent and Mike Govin, but hope to have Paul Rowley back against Hull.

The Great Britain forward Adrian Morley was sent off for a high tackle while playing for the Sydney Roosters in a 29-16 win over Canterbury yesterday.
