Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has made a number of changes to his 19-man squad for the visit of Wakefield Trinity on Friday night.

The Tigers will take on their local rivals at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle (kick-off 7.45pm) with the two clubs once again playing for the Adam Watene Trophy.

Powell has made four changes to the team that were defeated at the DW Stadium against Wigan Warriors last week with Ben Roberts (calf), Alex Foster (calf) and Nathan Massey (shoulder) all injured and winger James Clare set for a two month lay-off after suffering a tibial plateau fracture.

The Tigers are boosted by the return of Jesse Sene-Lefao and Junior Moors after injury while James Green and youngster Calum Turner have been called into the squad, the latter from the Cas academy.

Tickets for the game are still available from the Tigers Den in Carlton Lanes, Castleford Tigers Super Store at Xscape and online via the Tigers online box office.

The Castleford Tigers squad is:

18. Matt Cook, 6. Jamie Ellis, 7. Luke Gale, 22. James Green, 11. Oliver Holmes, 12. Mike McMeeken, 9. Paul McShane, 10. Grant Millington, 13. Adam Milner, 2. Greg Minikin, 17. Junior Moors, 15. Jesse Sene-Lefao, 4. Michael Shenton, 19. Gadwin Springer, 21. Jake Trueman, 33. Calum Turner, 16. Joe Wardle, 32. Liam Watts, 3. Jake Webster
