Preview: Castleford Tigers v Warrington Wolves

Warrington are boosted by the return of Kurt Gidley when they travel to face Castleford on Sunday.

The Australian half-back has missed the last two games for the Wolves with a hamstring problem but returns in place of Declan Patton in the 19-man squad.

Tony Smith’s side are unbeaten in their last four matches and can move to within a point of Hull FC and Wigan at the top of the table with a win.

Castleford ended an unwanted four match losing run last Sunday with a 38-24 victory over Catalans.

The Tigers sit sixth and with their top-eight spot now assured will be looking to bridge the seven point gap between themselves and the Dragons in fourth.

Tom Holmes returns to the squad in place of Nathan Massey who requires surgery on a long-term scaphoid injury.

Warrington won the reverse fixture 56-12 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in March but Cas got their revenge at the Magic Weekend with a 34-14 win.
