Both Hull KR and Salford Red Devils have announced their 19-man squads for their clash on Sunday at KCOM Craven Park as they continue to pile pressure for a top eight position.

Tim Sheens has confirmed that both Will Dagger and Will Oakes will return for the Rovers this weekend, whilst Chris Clarkson and Lee Jewitt miss out due to a back niggle and a chest infection retrospectively.

Ian Watson confirmed earlier this week that in-form utility back Jack Littlejohn will undergo surgery for a ruptured bicep, an injury sustained in last week’s loss to Warrington Wolves.

Littlejohn scored two tries last week against the Wolves, whilst centre Kris Welham also misses out due to a finger injury.

Levy Nzoungou returns to Salford following his loan spell with Championship side Swinton Lions.

Hull KR 19-man squad: Quinlan, Vaivai, Shaw, McGuire, Scruton, Lunt,  Masoe, Blair, Greenwood, Kavanagh, Donaldson, Lee, Mulhern, Salter, Atkin, Oakes, Dagger, Tickle, Tomkins.

Salford Red Devils 19-man squad: Johnson, Sa’u, Lui, Tomkins, Jones, Flanagan, Tasi, Lannon, McCarthy, Nakubuwai, Wood, Olpherts, Mossop, Bibby, Nzoungou, Murray, Shorrocks, Chamberlain, Burke.
