Super League match preview: Salford City Reds v Castleford Tigers
Last Updated: 27/04/13 7:28pm
Salford City Reds have named nine changes to their squad ahead of Saturday's Super League encounter with Castleford Tigers.
Following last weekend's resounding 82-6 Challenge Cup victory against Gloucestershire All Golds Reds' coach Brian Noble has rung the changes.
Centre Martin Gleeson and scrum-half Theo Fages return to the squad having been left out of the cup fixture while utility man Ryan McGoldrick is also included.
In the forward pack Wayne Godwin, Adam Neal, Darrell Griffin, Matty Ashurst, Andrew Dixon and Stephen Wild all return to action for the Reds as they look to move from the bottom of the table.
Despite scoring a hat-trick last weekend Jon Ford misses out on the 19-man squad, along with Will Hope, Niall Evalds and George Tyson who all made it onto the scoreboard last time out.
Lee Jewitt, Jordan Walne and Ben Gledhill also fail to make the cut as the Reds look to carry their cup form forward having lost their last three Super League fixtures.
Castleford Tigers have made just two changes to their 19-man squad under the guidance of temporary head coach Danny Orr.
Kirk Dixon is a welcome addition to the Tigers squad having been out of action since March 24 when he picked up a viral infection.
"Kirk has been out for the last five games, but he's had two full weeks training and is looking strong again so we're pleased to have him back in the squad," Orr said.
Richard Owen makes way for the winger while Orr's only other change sees Dan Fleming return in place of Charlie Martin.
The Tigers enter Saturday's foot of the table clash with just one win in their last ten Super League fixtures.
Salford:Broughton, Gibson, Gleeson, D. Williams, Foran, Ashurst, Dixon, Wild, Godwin, Mauro, James, Neal, Fages, Sneyd, McGoldrick, Owen, Griffin, A. Walne, Emmitt.
Castleford:Carney, Shenton, Dixon, Chase, Ellis, Walker, Clark, Huby, Gilmour, Hauraki, Milner, Massey, Holmes, Thompson, Tansey, Fleming, Clare, Mason, Boyle.
