Daryl Powell has named his 19-man squad to take on Huddersfield Giants at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Friday (kick-off 8pm) with all 17 players that featured against Catalans retaining their place along with Oliver Holmes and Gadwin Springer.

Holmes has yet to play this season as he has been recovering from a knee injury while Springer was left out against Catalans, but stands a chance of returning this week.

Head coach Powell said: “Greg Minikin is still a little bit sore so we won’t be risking him on Friday night and I thought Joel Monaghan did a pretty good job for us on Sunday and he’ll stay in there again.

“Oliver Holmes is pretty close to coming back and I’ll make a judgement call on him later in the week.”

Tickets for the match are available from the Tigers Den club shop in Carlton Lanes shopping centre and from the Tigers website.

The squad is:

6. Rangi Chase, 18. Matt Cook, 5. Greg Eden, 7. Luke Gale, 1. Zak Hardaker, 11. Oliver Holmes, 8. Andy Lynch, 14. Nathan Massey, 9. Paul McShane, 12. Mike McMeeken, 10. Grant Millington, 13. Adam Milner, 21. Joel Monaghan, 17. Junior Moors, 16. Ben Roberts, 15. Jesse Sene-Lefao, 4. Michael Shenton, 19. Gadwin Springer, 3. Jake Webster.
