Widnes will be looking to carry on from their shock win over Warrington last time out when they entertain Hull KR on Sunday.

The Vikings caused a huge upset back on August 15 when they defeated the Wolves 16-6 on their travels, despite being down to 12 men in the second half following a red card for Hep Cahill.

That result was soured slightly by the news that hooker Grant Gore had suffered a broken knee cap at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

With Jon Clarke also absent for this weekend, coach Denis Betts will have to decide who takes over the hooking duties for the clash with the Robins.

Lloyd White is a strong candidate for the job as he returns from a lengthy injury absence, while forwards Ben Cross and Gareth Hock are also fit again to boos Widnes' pack.

Cahill, meanwhile, is ruled out through suspension as the Vikings look to end their home campaign on a high.

Hull KR look likely to stick with the team that toppled Leeds Rhinos last time out, a result that helped secure their place in the play-offs.

Rich Beaumont and George Griffin are vying to take the place of Jason Netherton, who is out with a hip injury but could be back for the regular season finale against London Broncos.

Robins boss Craig Sandercock could hand a recall to Alex Brown after the winger was named in the visitors 19-man squad.

Widnes: Ah Van, Allen, K. Brown, Cross, Hanbury, Hulme, Hock, Isa, Joseph, Kavanagh, Lawton, Leuluai, Craven, Mellor, O'Carroll, Owens, Phelps, White, Winterstein.

Hull KR: Hall, Gleeson, D. Hodgson, Burns, Dobson, Tuimavave, J. Hodgson, Mika, Lovegrove, Withers, Walker, Salter, Caro, Cox, Beaumont, Green, Griffin, Brown, Ollett.
