Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has named his 19-man squad for Saturday’s Tetley’s Challenge Cup quarter-final against Wigan Warriors at the DW Stadium (kick-off 2.30pm).

Centre Michael Channing misses out after picking up a groin injury in last Sunday’s game against Hull KR, but Ashley Gibson returns and Lee Jewitt is included after a back injury kept him out of the side against Rovers.

While the Warriors have won the last four cup meetings between the two sides, Castleford have won the last two Super League meetings and did beat Wigan in the quarter-finals on the way to winning the trophy in 1986.
