Super League preview: London Broncos v Hull FC
Last Updated: 23/03/13 2:27pm
London Broncos go in search of their first home win of the season when they welcome Hull FC to the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday afternoon.
The capital club have so far been beaten by Widnes, Wakefield and Hull KR in front of their own fans, though they do go into their fixture this weekend off the back of a win.
The Broncos overcame Castleford 26-12 at the Wish Communications Stadium last Sunday, a result that moved them off the foot of the Super League table.
Coach Tony Rea has stuck with the same 19-man squad he named for the clash with the Tigers.
"It was a pleasing week where all the people that competed well in the game at Castleford came through," Rea told the club's official website.
"It's pleasing they get the opportunity to work together again and utilise their momentum at The Stoop on Saturday."
Hull, meanwhile, head to London looking to finally register a victory on their travels in 2013. They were beaten at Huddersfield last time out, though they did manage a point against St Helens in round three.
Coach Peter Gentle makes two alterations to his squad, recalling the fit-again Aaron Heremaia and Danny Tickle, who has completed a one-match ban.
"They are a dangerous side and they are particularly strong down their left side," Airlie Birds winger Tom Briscoe said of the Broncos.
"Kieran Dixon has scored six tries and Chris Bailey is going well. We have to be strong defensively across the board but particularly on that right side of our defence."
London Broncos: Bailey, Bryant, Channing, Clubb, Cook, Colbon, Dixon, Dorn, Fisher, Gower, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Lee, Lovell, Randall, Robertson, Rodney, Sarginson, Witt.
Hull: Arundel, Briscoe, Bowden, Crookes, Crooks, Galea, Heremaia, Holdsworth, Horne, Houghton, Johnson, Lineham, Lynch, McDonnell, O'Meley, Tickle, Watts, Westerman, Whiting.

Super League 2013, round eight
Brian McDermott says the weekend postponement of the Super League clash with Wakefield may have been good for Leeds.
Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock was glad to see his side come through a close game as they held off Castleford 26-22.
Hull KR made it three straight Super League home wins following a hard-fought 26-22 success over the Castleford Tigers.
