Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has named an unchanged 19-man squad for Thursday’s game away to Hull FC at the KC Stadium (kick-off 8pm).

The same 19 players will be on duty that were selected for the 40-6 win against Wakefield Wildcats with Michael Shenton, Frankie Mariano and Ash Robson remaining out injured.

Powell is looking for his players to step up a level for what he sees as a big test against opponents who have won their first two games in convincing fashion.

But he has given them a vote of confidence by naming an unchanged squad after being pleased with their efforts in the previous game against a Wakefield team who then went on to win at Hull KR last Sunday.

Tickets for Sunday’s clash are available at the Tigers Den club shop in Carlton Lanes shopping centre until 5pm on Wednesday. Fans can also buy online for ticket office collection via CastlefordTigers.com

The Tigers squad v Hull FC is: 16. Matt Cook, 19. Ben Crooks, 1. Luke Dorn, 7. Luke Gale, 18. Ryan Hampshire, 11. Oliver Holmes, 14. Lee Jewitt, 8. Andy Lynch, 13. Nathan Massey, 12. Mike McMeeken, 15. Paul McShane, 23. Will Maher, 10. Grant Millington, 9. Adam Milner, 17. Junior Moors, 2. Joel Monaghan, 6. Ben Roberts, 5. Denny Solomona, 3. Jake Webster.
