Friday, April 20

Salford (8) v Wakefield (7)

Salford coach Ian Watson brings back forwards Tyrone McCarthy and Luke Burgess in place of injured duo Lee Mossop and Josh Jones while loan signing Jake Shorrocks is back in contention for a half-back spot.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester has called winger Tom Johnstone and prop forward Pauli Pauli back into his squad after dropping them for the win over Wakefield but will be tempted to stick with a winning team.

Top try scorers: Jake Bibby & Niall Evalds (Salford) 5; Ben Jones-Bishop (Wakefield) 7

St Helens (1) v Huddersfield (11)

St Helens could give debuts to centre Matty Costello and second-rower James Bentley in the absence of Mark Percival, who is suspended, and Zeb Taia, who was injured in the defeat at Wakefield. Still without hooker James Roby, coach Justin Holbrook has also called up back-row forward Jack Ashworth.

Huddersfield are likely to turn to utility back Sam Wood to plug the gap created by the suspension of half-back Danny Brough, while forwards Tyler Dickinson and Colton Roche are recalled in place of Matty English and Jared Simpson.

Wigan have prop Ben Flower back from a head injury in the only change to the team which won at Leeds. Winger Tom Davies is their only injury absentee.

Castleford coach Daryl Powell has named the same 19-man squad, with half-back Jamie Ellis and forward Gadwin Springer hoping to force their way into the line-up.

Last season: Castleford 54 Wigan 4, Wigan 10 Castleford 27

Last six league matches: Wigan W W L W W W; Castleford W W W L W W
