London Broncos go in search of their first win of the season on Thursday against a Castleford Tigers team smarting from their first defeat.

The Broncos suffered their sixth successive loss against high-flying Rhinos last Friday while the Tigers' unbeaten start ended with a 23-16 loss at Salford.

Daryl Powell's Castleford are still a well-placed third in the standings while only Bradford's six-point deduction keeps Tony Rea's Broncos off the foot of the table.

Rea has made one change to his squad for the televised contest on Thursday evening with Jon Wallace coming in for prop Carl Forster.

Forster had been on loan with the Broncos from St Helens, but his month-long spell has now concluded.

Welcome back

"We'd like to thank Carl for his time here and would always welcome him back," Rea told the club's official website. "Jon Wallace has been going well in the under-19s and is knocking on the door."

Powell has made two changes for their trip to the capital with James Clare in line to make his first appearance of the season and 19-year-old Brad Day could make his debut.

Clare has replaced Owen in Powell's 19-man squad while teenager Day will replace experienced centre Jake Webster, who has a groin strain.

"Jake will be out for a few weeks," Powell told the Pontefract and Castleford Express. "It's unfortunate. He was looking all right and was pretty strong."

London Broncos: Bishay, Caton-Brown, Cook, Cunningham, Drinkwater, Farrar, Forster, Greenwood, Griffin, Krasniqi, Macani, McMeeken, Minns, Moore, O'Callaghan, Slyney, Solomona, Vea, Wallace.

Castleford Tigers: Shenton, Carney, Dorn, Sneyd, Lynch, Milner, Huby, Millington, Hauraki, Massey, Clark, Holmes, Mariano, Ellis, Channing, Clare, Fleming, Finn, Day.
