It is third versus fourth in Stobart Super League action on Friday night as the Catalan Dragons take on St Helens on in France.

The Perpignan club still harbour hopes of finishing top of the pile for the first time in their history as they sit four points behind leaders Wigan.

When the pair met earlier in the campaign the Dragons stunned the home side, running out 34-32 winners having trailed 26-8 early in the second half.

Saints are Super League's form team having won four straight outings, following a last-gasp 24-23 success at the Widnes Vikings last time out.

Playmaker Jonny Lomax returns to interim coach Mike Rush's 19-man squad, winger Ade Gardner is unavailable.

Mark Flanagan has also recovered from the problem that saw him omitted from the 17 that overcame the Vikings.

Massive game

"With it being fourth versus third, it's teed up nicely isn't it?" said Rush. "It's a big game for both clubs.

"We can peg them back level on points and if they win, they can put some distance between them and us. It is a massive game for both clubs."

The Dragons have been forced into a late change after David Ferriol's appeal against a two-match ban was rejected.

The prop was banned for a reckless tackle on Joel Monaghan, but was named in Trent Robinson's initial 19-man squad.

Cyrille Gossard has now been called into the squad to replace Ferriol.

Setaimata Sa, William Barthau, Thomas Bosc, Louis Anderson and Frederic Vaccari are all unavailable, however Damien Cardace is back after injury.

Catalan Dragons: Greenshields, Blanch, Pryce, Dureau, Ferriol, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Mounis, Raguin, Pelissier, Millard, Bousquet, Fakir, Paea, Baitieri, Duport, Cardace, Pala.

St Helens: Wellens, Shenton, Soliola, Meli, Hohaia, Lomax, Perry, Roby, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Puletua, Wilkin, Flannery, Laffranchi, Flanagan, Clough, Dixon, Gaskell, Makinson, J. Jones.
