Castleford Tigers will take on Warrington Wolves in the Super 8s later today as they aim to close the gap on the top 4.

Daryl Powell’s side are currently seven points behind the top 4, which means that with 5 games to go, Castleford can’t afford anymore slip ups.

The main injury news at Cas concerns Lee Jewitt who will miss the remainder of the season with a knee problem. The prop suffered knee ligament damage and with a move to Townsville Blackhawks already confirmed, his time at Castleford has come to an end.

On a more positive note, Paddy Flynn makes a return to the side after missing a month of action.

Warrington Wolves make only one change to their squad with Ryan Bailey replacing Ben Evans.

A win for the Wolves will put them a point behind the league leaders Hull FC and will take them a step closer to securing a play-off place.

Castleford, on the other hand, need the win to still be within a shout of a top 4 position. Cas have won three games in a row and have a lot of momentum heading into this crucial game. The match starts at 14:00.

Warrington Wolves : Atkins, Bailey, Clark, Currie, Dwyer, R Evans, Gidley, Hill, Hughes, G King, T King, Penny, Ratchford, Russell, Sandow, Sims, Westerman, Westwood, Wilde.

Castleford Tigers : Chase, Cook, Crooks, Dorn, Flynn, Gale, Hampshire, Holmes, Maher, Mariano, McShane, Millington, Milner, Minikin, Moors, Patrick, Savelio, Solomona, Springer.
