Hull KR welcome Widnes Vikings to the KC Lightstream Stadium on Sunday looking to bounce back from last weekend's 37-24 defeat to Catalan Dragons.

The defeat came on the back of a run of just one loss in five games as the Robins had looked recovered from a five-match winless streak to start the season.

Craig Sandercock's side now face a Widnes side buoyed by back-to-back wins against league leaders St Helens and at Salford in the Challenge Cup last Sunday.

The Vikings sit fifth in the table and are searching for some consistency having combined six wins with three heavy defeats so far this campaign.

A boost for the visitors comes in the form of Stef Marsh, the centre returning to the squad having been sidelined of late due to injury.

Danny Craven and Adam Lawton also come into Dennis Betts' 19-man squad with Grant Gore and Danny Galea the men to miss out.

The home side make five changes to their 19 with Justin Poore the most significant absentee after picking up a serious knee injury in the loss to Catalans.

However, full back Ben Cockayne, winger David Hodgson and forwards Jonny Walker and Jamie Langley are all in contention to play, along with recent signing Wayne Ulugia as Greg Eden, Keal Carlile, Omari Caro and Jason Netherton join Poore in dropping out.

Hull KR squad: Burns, Cockayne, Costigan, Cox, Gardner, Green, Hall, D Hodgson, J Hodgson, Horne, Keating, Langley, Larroyer, Lovegrove, Salter, Ulugia, J Walker, Welham, Weyman.

Widnes squad: Allen, Brown, Clough, Clarke, Craven, Dean, Flynn, Gerrard, Hanbury, Isa, Johnson, Kavanagh, Lawton, Leuluai, Marsh, Owens, Phelps, Tickle, White.
