Leeds Rhinos are likely to retain an unchanged line-up for the visit of Castleford Tigers to Headingley Carnegie on Friday evening.

The second-placed Rhinos beat Warrington Wolves 24-22 last time out on August 1 and are looking to keep up the pressue on league leaders St Helens with another victory.

Danny Buderus, Ryan Bailey, Ian Kirke and Paul McShane all remain sidelined.

Brent Sherwin has been named in The Tigers' initial 19-man squad and could return after a two-month absence.

Richard Owen is expected to overcome an ankle problem to feature but Kirk Dixon misses out due to a quad injury. Youngster James Ford, who made his engage Super League debut earlier this season, makes the initial squad.

Castleford currently occupy the seventh of eight play-off spots.

Leeds squad: Webb, Donald, Smith, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauitiiti, Sinfield, Diskin, Ablett, Burgess, Worrall, Watkins, Manning, Ratu

Castleford squad: Owen, Shenton, Evans, Wainwright, McGoldrick, Sherwin, Chase, Westerman, Ford, Feather, Widders, Jones, Ferres, Clayton, Sargent, Huby, Hudson, Higgins, Netherton
