Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has made a number of changes to his 19-man squad for Friday night’s game away to Wigan Warriors at the DW Stadium (kick-off 8pm).

Hooker Adam Milner is back from suspension while several players are available again after injury and James Clare returns to the squad after playing for York on dual contract last week.

But winger Denny Solomona will not play after pulling out of the Catalans game just before kick-off with a possible recurrence of his knee injury and hooker Scott Moore, who was the fans’ man of the match against the Dragons, misses out with a broken foot, after playing all of Sunday’s game with it broken.

“There will be a few changes to our squad with a few players a little bit busted,” said Powell.

“We’ve got a few players likely to come back, like Jake Webster and Lee Jewitt and Adam Milner is available again. Ben Roberts will be available again too after missing Sunday and James Clare will come back into the squad.”

Tickets for the game are on sale from the Tigers Den until 12 noon on Friday.
