Castleford utility back Jordan Turner has been named in the 21-man-squad to face former club Huddersfield on Thursday after four months out.

Turner has not featured for the Tigers since April because of a shoulder injury. He picked up the injury during Castleford’s 34-10 defeat at the hands of Hull KR.

He is one of three changes Lee Radford has made ahead of this clash, with Jake Mamo and Cheyse Blair also available for selection.

Both Mamo and Blair had to miss Castleford’s win over Catalans due to concussion protocols.

Adam Milner and Suaia Matagi will both be missing after both picked up two-match penalty notices following that win over Catalans.

However, there is bad news for the Fords, in the shape of Sosaia Feki. He is set to miss the rest of the season, after picking up a torn quad muscle.

As for Huddersfield, like last week, they have only been able to name a 20-man-squad for this clash.

Head Coach Ian Watson has made two changes from the side that lost against Salford on Saturday. Jack Ashworth is suspended and has been replaced Nathan Mason.

Meanwhile, there is a return for centre Ricky Leutele. He has been out for the last two months with a knee injury. He replaces Josh Jones in the squad, who didn’t play the game because of a groin injury.
