MICHAEL Shenton misses out on the chance to play against the club he will join next season, with an ankle injury ruling him out of the meeting with the Castleford Tigers.

St Helens take on Castleford tonight at Langtree Park desperate to end a run of two defeats.

However, they will be without a number of key players, including Josh Jones who sits out with a dead leg, while Jon Wilkin is not being risked with a quadricep problem.

Sia Soliola returns from a two-game lay-off and Ade Gardner is in contention having not played since April 9 with an eye injury.

Castleford sport just one change from the side humbled at home by London last weekend, with teenage utility back James Clare coming into coach Ian Millward’s squad. He replaces half-back Jamie Ellis, who is serving a one-match ban following a dangerous throw on Kieran Dixon in the London game.
