Hull FC coach Peter Gentle has stuck to his word and made three changes to his 19-man squad for the home tie against Castleford on Friday night.
The Black and Whites will be hoping for a sustained performance rather than the lacklustre showing which saw them beaten 36-16 by Widnes last weekend.
Castleford will want to build on the comeback put up against Wigan Warriors which saw them beaten 28-22 late on.
Hull FC welcome back playmaker Daniel Holdsworth, who has recovered from concussion which has seen him miss the last two games, and there is a first call-up of the season for props Josh Bowden and Liam Watts, with the latter recovering from a hand injury.
Hull 19-man squad: Arundel, Bowden, Briscoe, Galea, Heremaia, Holdsworth, Horne, Houghton, Johnson, Lineham, Lynch, McDonnell, O’Meley, Pitts, Tickle, Watts, Westerman, Whiting, Yeaman
Castleford 19-man squad: Carney, Shenton, Webster, Dixon, Chase, Ellis, Clarke, Huby, Gilmour, Hauraki, Millington, Emmitt, Milner, Massey, Holmes, Thompson, Tansey, Clare, Mason
Prediction: Hull look out of sorts of late and have lacked direction without Holdsworth but I’m backing Castleford after a decent showing against Wigan.
Hull FC have won their last three meetings with Castleford, with the Tigers’ last win coming 20-18 at the KC Stadium on 1 April, 2011.
