Wakefield Wildcats will be out to end a run of four games without success by seeing off Super League champions Leeds Rhinos on Sunday afternoon.
The match had been due to be played on Friday night but heavy snow in Yorkshire meant it has been put back to Sunday.
Richard Agar's men were put to the sword 52-18 by St Helens last weekend while Leeds proved their credentials with a battling 18-14 success over last season's League Leaders' Shield winners Wigan Warriors.
Former Rhino Ali Lauitiiti and Justin Poore return to Wakefield's 19-man squad at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium. The powerful pair missed the defeat at St Helens last Friday.
Poore returns in time to renew his rivalry with Ryan Bailey. Wakefield's big close season signing was sent off 20 minutes into his debut during the Boxing Day trial match with Leeds for punching the prop forward.
The match has come too soon for captain Danny Kirmond (knee), Andy Raleigh (knee) and Tim Smith (calf), however, leaving Agar without three key players for the clash with Brian McDermott's side.
Youngsters Danny Cowling and Bobbie Goulding drop out of the squad and are instead expected to play for Doncaster on dual registration this weekend.
"It's going to be a massive task against us - Leeds got a nice win last week against Wigan and they've got some really powerful ball carriers and it's a task we're looking forward to," Ben Cockayne told Wakefield's official website.
"We beat them last year and it was a great night for us and we won it pretty convincingly in the end. If it turns out like that again this weekend then it will be outstanding but we are realistic enough to say Leeds are a top quality side."
McDermott has named an unchanged 19-man squad for the short trip down the M1 to face Wakefield. Winger Ben Jones-Bishop and full-back Zak Hardaker remain sidelined.
Hooker Paul McShane and Chris Clarkson are back in the mix this week after missing out on the final 17 against the Warriors.
Wakefield: Mathers, Fox, Collis, Lyne, Cockayne, Sykes, Wood, Poore, Aiton, Wilkes, Lauitiiti, Mellars, Washbrook, L. Smith, Annakin, Amor, Mariano, Trout, Wildie.
Leeds: Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Moore, Vickery.
