Makinson was withdrawn in the second half with head coach Kristian Woolf revealing post-match it was 'for precautionary reasons' but he had not recovered in time to feature this week.

There is good news, however, on full back Lachlan Coote who was also substituted 10 minutes from time against Trinity in his second outing of the season, but has come through well and is again named.

Matty Lees and Morgan Knowles are still out so Dan Norman and Tom Nisbet are both included once more,

Squad: 1 Lachlan Coote, 3. Kevin Naiqama, 4. Mark Percival, 5. Regan Grace, 6. Jonny Lomax, 7. Theo Fages, 8. Alex Walmsley, 9. James Roby, 11. Joel Thompson, 12. James Bentley, 14. Sione Mata’utia, 15. LMS, 16. Kyle Amor, 17. Agnatius Paasi, 18. Jack Welsby, 19. Aaron Smith, 20. Joe Batchelor, 21. Lewis Dodd, 23. Jake Wingfield, 25. Dan Norman, 26. Tom Nisbet.

The game is live on Sky Sports Arena, kick-off 7. 45 pm.
