Hull KR have named two changes to their squad ahead of Sunday's fifth round Tetley's Challenge Cup tie at Craven Park.

Second row Cory Paterson has been brought into the squad which lost to Castleford last time out at Jordan Cox's expense.

On-loan Huddersfield back Luke George is unavailable for selection, leaving Craig Sandercock to bring centre Graeme Horne into the match-day party.

The Robins enter the cup tie with their Super League rivals looking to end a run of two successive defeats.

Warriors coach Shaun Wane will have to tackle the Challenge Cup tie without scrum-half Matty Smith who has failed to recover from a shoulder injury picked up against Salford last time out.

Wane has named both Sam Powell and Sean O'Loughlin in his 19-man squad with either able to deputise for the absent Smith.

Winger Pat Richards is now fully fit and returns to a Wigan squad which has won eight successive matches but stand-off Blake Green knows nothing can be taken for granted.

"Eight wins in a row now sees us heading to Hull KR in confident mood but I can't see us ever getting complacent," the 26-year-old said.

Hull KR have lost their last three Super League fixtures and went down 84-6 to the 18-times Challenge Cup winners Wigan last month.

Hull KR squad: Salter, Caro, Walker, Green, Griffin, Paterson, Mika, Burns, Horne, Withers, Hall, Paea, Carlile, Lovegrove, Dobson, D Hodgson, Eden, Beaumont, J Hodgson

Wigan squad: Burke, Charnley, Crosby, Farrell, Flower, Goulding, Green, Hansen, Hughes, Lauaki, McIlorum, Mossop, O'Loughlin, Powell, Richards, Taylor, Thornley, L Tomkins, S Tomkins
