Powell makes one change to the team who were due to face Wigan Warriors last weekend. Jy Hitchcox returns to the squad with Jesse Sene-Lefao out with a MCL meniscus injury which could see him side-lined for a number of weeks after undergoing surgery today.

The Tigers are looking forward to heading to the iconic Yorkshire venue, speaking on Monday at a joint press conference at Elland Road, Daryl Powell said:  “The pitch here at Elland Road is a decent surface and we are looking forward to getting back out on the field again. This is a game that is important to us. Coming to Elland Road is exciting for both clubs, it’s something a little bit different for us. It’s going to be a bigger than normal crowd and everyone is excited to play here.”

Ticket sales have already broken to 20,000 barrier with both clubs hoping to break the record attendance of 25,004 for a regular Super League fixture. The final batch of tickets for the South Stand (the away end) arrived at the club this morning and they are being snapped up very quickly. Fans can buy in store at the Tigers Den club shop in Carlton Lanes or from the Castleford Tigers Sports Superstore in Xscape. Alternatively, fans can buy online here  and the tickets can be collected at the Elland Road ticket office on arrival on Friday night.
