Wakefield head coach Richard Agar has included vice-captain Richard Mathers in his 19-man squad to take on Hull FC at the KC Stadium in the fifth round of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup on Friday, kick-off 8pm.

Richard Mathers is set to return against Hull FC on Friday.

The full-back has been missing since he suffered a ruptured testicle and injured ankle in defeat to Wigan last month and could return in the knockout cup clash against the Airlie Birds.

Paul Sykes drops out from the squad while prop forward Justin Poore retains his place in the squad after he rolled his ankle in the impressive victory over Catalans on Saturday in an otherwise unchanged 19-man squad.

The Wildcats will be looking for a fourth consecutive victory, a run which started in the fourth round of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup against Hemel Stags and a win at the KC Stadium would leave Agar’s men just two games away from Wembley.

The squad in full to take on Hull:

1. Richard MATHERS

2. Peter FOX

3. Dean COLLIS

4. Lee SMITH


7. Tim SMITH

8. Justin POORE

9. Paul AITON

10. Andy RALEIGH


12. Danny KIRMOND


14. Kyle WOOD

15. Kyle AMOR

16. Oliver WILKES

19. Vince MELLARS

20. Reece LYNE

27. Chris ANNAKIN

29. Jon MOLLOY

Dewsbury Rams pair Bobbie Goulding and Lucas Walshaw are in contention to play Keighley Cougars on Sunday while the Wildcats players at Doncaster and Featherstone will not feature this weekend as they have no league fixture.

Wildcats have also teamed up with Oxford RL this season and the newly instated Championship One team host North Wales Crusaders on Sunday.

Gold Members are invited to purchase their tickets for Hull before 5pm today (Wednesday) to take advantage of the £1 discount on tickets for the fifth round of the Cup.

Matchday ticket prices are £15 adults, £12 for concessions and juniors are £10 so buy yours from the Rapid Solicitors Stadium Box Office, Ridings Centre or alternatively call 01924 211611.
