Daryl Millard returns to the Catalans side after an injury lay-off
Catalans Dragons have named two changes to their squad ahead of Sunday's Tetley's Challenge Cup tie against York at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium.
Head coach Laurent Frayssinous named his 19-man squad for the fifth round clash with Louis Anderson and Daryl Millard both involved.
Both Anderson and Millard have spent periods on the sidelines with injuries missing recent Super League fixtures but make their return as the Dragons look to book a place in the sixth round of the tournament.
Frayssinious is still without Scott Dureau, Brent Webb, Olivier Elima, Julian Bousquet, Steve Menzies, Jason Baitieri and Frédéric Vaccari who all remain on the Catalans injury list.
Meanwhile York City Knights coach Gary Thornton also enters the clash with a growing injury list to contend with.
Club captain James Ford has ruled out of the fifth round Challenge Cup encounter as has Adam Sullivan who is still recovering from a long-term injury.
With a number of first choice players unavailable former Wakefield Wildcats junior Joe Picketts and teenager Ashley Haynes are both included in the match-day squad.
The Kingstone Press Championship side come up against their first Super League opponent of the campaign on Sunday as they bid for a place in the sixth round of the Challenge Cup.
