Castleford Tigers’ 19-man squad for their trip to Wigan this Thursday shows just one change despite several players picking up injuries in the win over Huddersfield Giants last Friday.

Greg Minikin returns to the 19 after missing the last two matches while forward Grant Millington misses out for the first time this year.

Speaking about his squad selection Tigers head coach Daryl Powell said: “We’ve got a couple of injury doubts, Greg Minikin is one while Joel Monaghan has tweaked his groin and Junior Moors is obviously struggling.

“We’ve got a couple of boys we need to check on as we go through the week. Oliver Holmes rolled his ankle as well but it was nice to see him get some game time.”

Tickets for the match are available to buy from the Tigers Den club shop in Carlton Lanes shopping centre or online from the Tigers website.

The full 19-man 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, 2. Greg Minikin, 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.
