Loz Wildbore misses out on the chance of facing his former club after being suspended by the RFL’s Disciplinary Committee.
He will be serving the first of a three-match ban after being committing a dangerous tackle in the 42-24 win over Oldham a fortnight ago.
“York have undergone some changes to their staff and playing roster this season yet their position in the top four of the competition shows their consistency and application.
“Dave Woods is a very experienced and successful coach and they will be primed. They have a number of threats all over the park and we will need to be at our best to compete.”
Coach Dave Woods said: “We’re in a position where we’re thinking about who we are going to leave out. It’s a good position to be in.”
Victory would maintain York’s chances of finishing in the top three.
Woods said: “It’s a strange one, because if we don’t finish third we get a home semi-final and we don’t miss a week, so it’s got its fors and againsts. We want to finish third but we won’t be too worried if we don’t.”
