London Broncos and Castleford will both be desperate for a long-overdue victory when they go head-to-head at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday.

The Broncos have so far lost all five of their Super League fixtures in 2012, their most recent defeat seeing them go down 44-12 away at Salford.

They currently sit just above bottom-club Widnes on points difference but half-back Michael Witt is confident they can quickly turn things around, starting with the clash with the Tigers.

"We know we have had a poor start, but none of that has been down to a lack of effort. The boys are really looking forward to putting it right at the weekend and hopefully that will show," he said.

Coach Rob Powell has made three changes to his 19-man party, welcoming back the fit-again trio of Tony Clubb, Dan Sarginson and Karl Temata.

England international Clubb has recovered from a dislocated jaw while Sarginson is included for the first time this season having had an operation on his wrist during the winter.

Temata, meanwhile, is back from a knee injury picked up during the pre-season friendly against Catalans Dragons. Kieran Dixon, Omari Caro and Ben Bolger make way while Shane Rodney is still unavailable.

"We're very happy to welcome Tony Clubb, Karl Temata and Dan Sarginson back into the squad," Powell said.

"Clubby and Karl add size and go-forward while Sarg is clearly an exciting player who will be looking to build on last season's performances because he adds a lot of spark."

Tigers improving?

Castleford head to the capital having been beaten in their previous four outings, though they did turn in an improved display against Yorkshire rivals Leeds last Friday in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

They are once again without head coach Ian Millward, who is still on compassionate leave following the sudden death of his son Robbie.

However the Australian has had a hand in team selection for the game against the Broncos and is expected to back at work on Monday. His assistant, Stuart Donlan, will continue in charge this weekend.

The visitors are without Brett Ferres due to suspension, while Steve Nash and James Grehan have been dropped from the squad.

In their places come hooker Ryan Hudson, prop Jonathan Walker and academy winger James Clare, who could make his Super League debut if he's selected in the final 17.

London Broncos: Bailey, Bryant, Clubb, Colbon, Cook, Dorn, Golden, Gower, Howell, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Melling, O'Callaghan, Randall, Rinaldi, Robertson, Sarginson, Temata, Witt.

Castleford: Owen, Youngquest, Dixon, Griffin, Chase, Orr, Emmitt, Clark, Walker, Snitch, Jones, Milner, Hudson, Mitchell, Millington, Holmes, Massey, McGoldrick, Clare.
