ACTING Castleford Tigers head coach Stuart Donlan has named an unchanged 19-man squad ahead of Sunday's home clash with Wigan Warriors at the Probiz Coliseum (kick-off 3.30pm).

James Grehan and Jonathan Walker, who missed out on the match-day 17 in Perpignan last weekend, are once again included along with the team that pushed Catalan Dragons all the way.

"We've picked up no injuries against Catalan and we were reasonably happy with the performance,” said assistant coach Donlan, who is standing in for head coach Ian Millward, who is on compassionate leave.

“The Catalan pack just got on top of us in the last 10, which is something we'll be looking to put right this week.

"It's going to be a tough day on Sunday with a lot of emotion, but the feeling I get from the lads is that they are really focused on this game and they really want to put on a performance that will do Ian and his family proud, as well as make his job a little easier when he does return."

The full 19-man squad is:

1. Richard Owen

3. Joe Arundel

4. Kirk Dixon

5. Josh Griffin

6. Rangi Chase

7. Danny Orr (c)

8. Jake Emmitt

9. Daryl Clark

11. Brett Ferres

12. Jonathan Walker

13. Steve Snitch

14. Stuart Jones

15. Adam Milner

17. Lee Mitchell

21. Oliver Holmes

22. Nathan Massey

23. Ryan McGoldrick

24. Steve Nash

28. James Grehan
