Hull KR will have to cope without half-back duo Travis Burns and Michael Dobson in their Easter Monday clash with Wigan at MS3 Craven Park.

Coach Craig Sandercock, a staunch critic of Super League's Easter schedule, has also left out winger David Hodgson and second-rower Cory Paterson as Rovers prepare for their second game in four days.

Dobson was a late scratch from the 23-10 victory over arch-rivals Hull FC on Friday after picking up a hamstring injury in his side's final training session before the clash.

Burns started the derby but was forced off through injury and has also been ruled out of the clash with the Warriors.

Craig Hall filled in for Dobson on Friday, while 19-year-old half-back Matty Beharell comes into the squad in place of Burns.

In contrast, Wigan coach Shaun Wane has named an unchanged 19-man squad following Friday's victory over arch-rivals St Helens.

"Hull KR are a great team and like us they had a very tough game, on Good Friday they had a local derby against Hull," Wane told the Warriors' official website.

"I am sure we will be sore as will they, it will be an interesting game to watch, to coach in and to play in.

"Craig Sandercock has done a great job there, they have some good quality players as we found in the pre-season friendly so we will need to go across to Hull and do a good job on them."

Hull KR squad: Salter, Brown, Walker, Horne, Griffin, Latus, Mika, Tuimavave, Welham, Beharrell, Hall, Paea, Carlile, Cox, Caro, Beaumont, Eden, Lovegrove, J Hodgson.

Wigan squad: Burke, Charnley, Crosby, Lloyd, Farrell, Flower, Goulding, Green, Hughes, McIlorum, O'Loughlin, Richards, Spencer, Smith, Taylor, Thornley, L Tomkins, S Tomkins, Tuson.
