Catalan Dragons take on Hull FC at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium on Saturday hoping to extent their unbeaten run to five matches.

The Dragons last defeat came over a month ago away at Warrington and have recorded three wins and a draw since then.

Their home form is even more impressive, with seven straight wins in a run stretching back to February and a loss to Leeds. St Helens were their most recent victims, beaten 42-0 last Saturday.

The visitors have also found some form with big wins away at London Broncos and Widnes in their last two games, having lost the previous four.

Neither side can improve on their current positions of 7th and 9th, respectively, in the Super League table but will know a win will boost their play-off hopes.

Laurent Frayssinous has made just one change to his Dragons squad for the match, bringing in new signing Sam Williams for suspended hooker Eloi Pelissier with the half-back set to make his Super League debut.

Hull FC head coach Lee Radford has made three changes to the 19 that thrashed Widnes last time out. Winger Tom Lineham returns to the squad for the first time since early March following an ankle injury replacing Callum Lancaster, himself suffering with a minor injury.

The other alterations see Richard Whiting and Dean Hadley come in for Jacob Miller and Liam Watts.

Catalan Dragons: Escare, Pryce, Pomeroy, Oldfield, Bosc, Elima, Henderson, Lima, Taia, Anderson, Mounis, Whitehead, Millard, Paea, Baitieri, Duport, Cardace, Garcia, Williams.

Hull FC: Bowden, Crooks, Ellis, Heremaia, Hadley, Horne, Houghton, Lineham, Paea, Paleaaesina, Rankin, Sa, Shaul, Talanoa, Thompson, Tuson, Westerman, Whiting, Yeaman.

Watch Catalan Dragons take on Hull FC live on Sky Sports 1HD at 4:55pm on Friday.
