Hull KR host Warrington Wolves at the KC Lightstream Stadium on Sunday in one of five all-Super League ties in the fourth round of the Challenge Cup.

Warrington's rich history in the competition, including three titles in the last five years, makes them strong favourites ahead of Sunday's meeting, as does league form.

The pair are yet to lock horns in the Super League, but the Wolves hold a three-point advantage on their opponents, having won four of their opening seven games.

Craig Sandercock's Robins sit 10th in Super League with just two victories and a draw to their name.

Despite the Wolves superior form, the Robins have won their last two home meetings against Warrington; with the Wolves last away win at Hull KR coming in June 2011, when they triumphed 46-16.

Rovers head coach Sandercock welcomes full-back Greg Eden into his 19-man squad for the visit of Warrington.

The 23-year-old is named in the match-day party as he continues his recovery from a broken toe, but there is no return for Jamie Langley as a hamstring problem continues to prevent his inclusion.

Robins centre Craig Hall also remains sidelined through injury, meaning Sandercock is likely to field a similar side to the one which thrashed Wakefield Wildcats 44-6 last weekend.

Matthew Russell returned to Wolves action in their 33-14 win at Huddersfield last weekend and once again features in Tony Smith's travelling party.

Half-back Gareth O'Brien misses out however, with experienced prop Paul Wood coming in to take his place, while Ryan Atkins makes the 19 despite not featuring in last weekend's Super League tie.

Hull KR: Burns, Carlile, Caro, Cockayne, Costigan, Cox, Eden, Gardner, Green, J Hodgson, Horne, Keating, Larroyer, Lovegrove, Netherton, Salter, Walker, Welham, Weyman.

Wolves: Asotasi, Atkins, Bridge, B Evans, R Evans, Grix, Higham, Hill, Laithwaite, J Monaghan, M Monaghan, Myler, Ormsby, Ratchford, Riley, Russell, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.
