Super League: Warrington Wolves v Hull KR preview
Last Updated: 10/04/14 2:23pm
Hull KR will have revenge on their minds when they travel to Warrington in a re-match of their Tetley's Challenge Cup fourth round clash last weekend.
The Wolves fought back from a half-time deficit to beat their opponents 28-24 on home soil, but the teams must go head-to-head for the second time in five days.
Rovers, who are currently 10th, one point outside the play-offs places, will be looking to record a win at the Halliwell Jones Stadium which would leave them just a point behind sixth-placed Warrington.
"I would have been more encouraged if we had beaten them on Sunday," admitted Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock.
"We are reasonably happy that we competed hard and it was a close result at the end."
Warrington are without forwards Ben Westwood and Ben Evans because of injury.
Prop Ben Harrison and hooker Brad Dwyer are poised to make their first appearances of the season, while Anthony England and Ben Currie are also back in contention.
"It will be difficult this week against Hull KR as they will be determined to get the result, especially after last weekend and getting knocked out of the cup," said Wolves' assistant coach Willie Poching.
"They will be ready to come here full guns blazing as they can just focus on the league now and we've got to be ready to combat that."
Hull KR are poised to recall utility back Craig Hall, who has missed the last four games because of a testicle injury that required surgery.
Warrington Wolves squad: Asotasi, Atkins, Bridge, Currie, Dwyer, England, R.Evans, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Laithwaite, J.Monaghan, M.Monaghan, Myler, Ratchford, Russell, Waterhouse, Wood
Hull KR squad: Burns, Carlile, Caro, Cockayne, Costigan, Cox, Gardner, Green, Hall, J.Hodgson, Horne, Keating, Larroyer, Lovegrove, Netherton, Salter, A.Walker, Welham, Weyman
