Hull KR face Salford City Reds on Sunday as they aim to make it five wins from five in Super League.

Craig Sandercock's Rovers have recorded wins over Bradford, Huddersfield, Catalan and, most recently, St Helens in the past month.

Rovers sit in sixth place in the table after their recent good form and can further cement their position in the play-off spots with victory over Brian Noble's Reds.

Salford come into the match with a modicum of momentum themselves, having responded to three heavy defeats with a win in their bottom-of-the-table clash with the London Broncos.

Liam Salter, Rhys Lovegrove and Jason Netherton all return to the 19-man squad for Sunday's game but centre Sean Gleeson, formerly of Salford, must wait for his home debut as he misses out with a chest infection.

Sandercock also recalls hooker Lincoln Withers with Keal Carlile the man to make way.

Sean's cousin, Martin Gleeson is back for the Reds after a calf problem whilst Lee Jewitt replaces hooker Gareth Owen in the 19 as he targets a first appearance since April having recovered from a knee injury.

Hull K R: Salter, Withers, Walker, Netherton, Tuimavave, Cox, Mika, Burns, Horne, Brown, Hall, Paea, D. Hodgson, Lovegrove, Dobson, Paterson, Eden, Beaumont, J. Hodgson.

Salford: Broughton, Gibson, Gleeson, Gaskell, D. Williams, Ashurst, Dixon, Wild, Godwin, McPherson, James, Neal, Fages, Sneyd, McGoldrick, Griffin, Jewitt, A. Walne, Emmitt.
