Last Updated: 19/05/13 2:54pm
Hull KR have named five changes to their side ahead of Sunday's Super League clash with Wakefield Wildcats at New Craven Park.
Craig Sandercock's Rovers are boosted by the return of Kris Welham after recovering from a shoulder injury sustained during April's Challenge Cup victory against St Helens.
Forward Aaron Ollett and back row Jordan Cox are both brought into the 19-man squad following the Robins 46-14 defeat to Wigan in the Challenge Cup last weekend.
On-loan Luke George returns to the squad after missing out on the cup tie while winger Alex Brown in also included as Hull KR look to avenge back-to-back Super League defeats.
Meanwhile, Richard Agar has named an unchanged Wakefield Wildcats squad after their fifth round Challenge Cup defeat to Hull FC.
Full-back Richard Mathers looks certain to make the starting line-up having fully recovered from an ankle injury which has kept him out of action since April.
Australian prop Justin Poore is also in contention should he be able to prove his fitness when tested on Saturday.
Paul Sykes remains unavailable with the stand-off's knee injury meaning he is still two weeks away from full fitness.
Hull KR: Beaumont, Brown, Burns, Cox, Dobson, Eden, Hall, J Hodgson, Horne, George, Griffin, Lovegrove, Mika, Ollett, Paea, Salter, Walker, Withers, Welham.
Wakefield Wildcats: Aiton, Amor, Annakin, Cockayne, Collis, Fox, Kirmond, Lauitiiti, Lyne, Mathers, Mellars, Molloy, Poore, Raleigh, L Smith, T Smith, Washbrook, Wilkes, Wood.
