Castleford Tigers have made two changes to their 19-man squad ahead of their clash against Hull KR on Sunday.

Forward Tyrone McCarthy looks set to make his debut for the Tigers after making a loan move from super League rivals Warrington during the week.

Having missed the defeat to the Salford City Reds last weekend, Richard Owen returns to the squad.

Meanwhile, temporary head coach Danny Orr has opted to leave James Clare and Dan Fleming out of the squad as they look to recover from back-to-back defeats.

Visitors Hull KR have also made two changes to their squad following the 44-10 loss at home to reigning champions Leeds Rhinos last week.

The Robins welcome back hooker Lincoln Withers while on-loan Huddersfield back Luke George is also brought into Craig Sandercock's match-day party.

The inclusion of Withers and George means there is no room for Kris Welham and Australian second row Cory Paterson in the Robins squad.

The Tigers enter Sunday's encounter seeking only their third win of the 2013 campaign while Hull KR will be eager to return to winning ways having lost their last two Super League fixtures.

Castleford: Owen, Carney, Shenton, Dixon, Chase, Ellis, Walker, Clark, Huby, Gilmour, Hauraki, Milner, Massey, Holmes, Thompson, Tansey, Mason, Boyle, McCarthy.

Hull K R: Salter, Caro, Walker, Green, Griffin, Cox, Mika, Burns, George, Withers, Hall, Paea, Carlile, Lovegrove, Dobson, D. Hodgson, Eden, Beaumont, J. Hodgson.
