Wakefield coach Richard Agar has named an unchanged 19-man squad for Hull FC's visit to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Easter Monday.

The Wildcats secured a comfortable victory against Castleford on Good Friday and Agar has called on the same players again just three days later.

Half-back Paul Sykes suffered a facial cut in the second half on Friday but will be fit to take the field against the Black and Whites.

Injury-hit Hull have also named an unchanged 19-man squad despite their 23-10 defeat to arch-rivals Hull KR at the beginning of the Easter weekend.

A total of eight players, including big-name winter signings Gareth Ellis and Daniel Holdsworth, are on the injury list but there are no new problems following the derby defeat.

Prop Andy Lynch, who was named in the initial 19 but missed out on match-day against Rovers due to illness, is expected to return to the line-up.

Jason Crookes could return having been absent on Friday as the condition of the squad is still being assessed during the short fixture turnaround.

Wakefield squad: Mathers, Fox, Collis, L. Smith, Cockayne, Sykes, T. Smith, Poore, Aiton, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Wood, Amor, Wilkes, Mellars, Lyne, Annakin.

Hull squad: Arundel, Briscoe, Bowden, Crooks, Crookes, Galea, Green, Heremaia, Horne, Houghton, Johnson, Lineham, Lynch, O'Meley, Pitts, Tickle, Watts, Westerman, Whiting.
