Dobson will jump above Steve McNamara (514 goals) if he lands two goals in the televised clash, while he needs four points to jump above Danny Orr (1,259) in the points list.
The Australian half-back also boasts the current longest scoring streak in Super League, having registered points in the Robins’ last 26 games.
Wakefield won the last meeting between these two sides, back in August, when Paul Sykes‘ drop goal secured a 31-30 win which ultimately helped steer the Wildcats to a play-off finish.
They are hoping to welcome back Australian half-back Tim Smith, who sat out the opening day defeat to Bradford with an ankle injury.
Wakefield 19-man squad: Mathers, Fox, Collis, Cockayne, Sykes, T Smith, Poore, Aiton, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Wood, Amor, Wilkes, Mariano, Mellars, Lyne, Annakin
Hull KR 19-man squad: Salter, Caro, Ferguson, Horne, Walker, Paterson, Mika, Tuimavave, Cox, Griffin, J Hodgson, Paea, Carlile, Hall, Dobson, D Hodgson, Eden, Latus, Withers
Prediction: Both teams will be looking to bounce back from opening day defeats, but home advantage should just about see Wakefield home – home win.
