Hull FC v Hull KR: Teams
At Etihad Stadium, Saturday May 26, KO: 7pm, watch live on Sky Sports 3HD
Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock is hoping his side's club-record Stobart Super League win over Castleford can inspire them to a derby-day success.
The Robins ran in 12 tries in a 70-12 blitz of the Tigers last weekend, setting themselves up nicely for their Magic Weekend clash with local rivals Hull FC at the Etihad Stadium.
Their build-up is in stark contrast to the last meeting with the Black and Whites on Good Friday when they suffered a 36-6 defeat just a week after going down to a last-minute defeat at Castleford.
And, having craved an 80-minute performance since he joined the club from Newcastle in the winter, Sandercock hopes he has finally found the right formula for success.
"We will be going in with some momentum and confidence and we will need to," he said.
"Hull FC are way ahead of us on the table and are playing well themselves and we are looking forward to put in a much better performance than last time.
"It was pleasing to get 80 minutes for the first time against Castleford and it was pleasing to get a performance like that. We need to transfer that to the top sides and that's what Hull are."
Sandercock is set to stick with the side that demolished Castleford, although second rower Graeme Horne is pushing for a recall against his old club. Craig Hall continues to deputise for centre Jake Webster, the Robins' only injury absentee.
Hull FC coach Peter Gentle describes Saturday's game as the "toughest" of the five derbies on view this weekend.
"It's a true city derby and, while we won the last one, it still took us a few weeks to get over the bruises and also the emotional high of the game," he said.
"It's not only the players who feel it emotionally, the whole city rides the rollercoaster with us.
"It's a game you want to be involved in and there is no better game for us on the back of a disappointing performance against London last time out."
Gentle has recalled veteran centre Tony Martin in the only change to the side which narrowly beat London 14-12.
Martin has recovered from a neck injury and takes the place of Richard Whiting, who serves a one-match ban, with Richard Horne reclaiming his old stand-off spot.
Hull FC: Aspinwall, Briscoe, Crooks, Horne, Houghton, Kent, Lynch, Manu, Martin, Moa, Nicklas, O'Carroll, Pitts, Russell, Sharp, Seymour, Tickle, Turner, Westerman
