Wakefield prop Andy Raleigh is hoping to be back in action during the Easter weekend after returning to full training.

The influential forward has been sidelined with an injury sustained during the defeat to Catalan Dragons at the beginning of March.

But the 32-year-old could be recalled to Richard Agar's squad for the Good Friday clash with Castleford at the Wish Communications Stadium.

"I'm glad to be back in full training and hopefully I'm not too far away from playing once again," Raleigh told the official Wildcats website.

"It's always frustrating when you're injured, especially us going so close against teams like Salford and we should have won that one.

"I'm really looking forward to get playing, I felt as though I was playing and getting into form but that's the nature of the game and I got a knock."

And Raleigh admits he can think of no better match than a West Yorkshire derby in which to make his comeback.

"It's a big fixture for the clubs and its great seeing so many fans at a proper rugby league ground at Cas, just like it is here," he said.

"The fans are right on top of you and make plenty of noise so it's something to look forward to."
