Daryl Powell has named an unchanged 19-man squad for Castleford Tigers’ visit to Wigan Warriors on Friday.

The match will take place at the DW Stadium in Wigan and will kick off at 7.45pm.

Powell has stuck with the same 19-man team that did the job against Catalans Dragons with an impressive 41-0 victory, with Jamie Ellis and Gadwin Springer the players who missed out on the final 17 that took to the field.

Tickets are available for Friday’s game from the Tigers Den club shop in Carlton Lanes and the Castleford Tigers Super Store in Xscape, but official coach travel has sold out.

Castleford Tigers’ squad is:

26 James Clare

18 Matt Cook

6 Jamie Ellis

17 Alex Foster

7 Luke Gale

11 Oliver Holmes

14 Nathan Massey

12 Mike McMeeken

9 Paul McShane

10 Grant Millington

13 Adam Milner

2 Greg Minikin

1 Ben Roberts

4 Michael Shenton

19 Gadwin Springer

21 Jake Trueman

16 Joe Wardle

32 Liam Watts
