Ben Cockayne is set for his home debut for Featherstone after making an encouraging start to his Rovers career in last week’s 24-18 win at Batley.
Coach Daryl Powell said: “Ben was strong and carried the ball well (last week). He’ll be better for the run.”
Defeat for Sheffield this week, combined with wins for Halifax and Barrow, would see their play-off place come under threat.
Eagles coach Mark Aston is assessing his options after Simon Brown and Joe Hirst (hamstring) both suffered knocks against Leigh, while Quentin Laulu-Togagae is battling to recover from his own hamstring problem.
Aston said: “We are busted up and it’s a quick turnaround, but we’ll get a squad together.”
