coach Denis Betts has named his 19-man squas for Sunday's clash against Hull Kingston Rovers at the Stobart Stadium.

One player who won't feature for the Vikings is recent recruit Eamon O'Carroll, who will take no further part in Widnes' season after suffering a broken arm in last Friday's 46-8 victory over Salford City Reds. Captain Jon Clarke and vice-captain Shaun Briscoe are also still unavailable for selection.

The Vikings go into Sunday's game having won two of their last three games, whilst their opponents have lost in each of their previous four outings, although this doesn't mean Betts' team be treating this game differently to any other, as the Vikings' Head Coach explains; "Our process has been exactly the same and the players know that there are still many big challenges ahead of us. We have always talked about the second half of the year as a big driver and you can really start to see the players' self belief growing.

"Regardless of recent results, Hull KR are a very good side. They have got fantastic strike players and two front rowers who have played at State of Origin level. Craig (Sandercock) is a really good coach and I know he will be working hard to get a response this week."

Vikings from: Ah Van, Allen, Cahill, Cross, Craven, Davies, Dean, Gerrard, Haggerty, Hanbury, Isa, Kite, McShane, Marsh, Owens, Phelps, Mellor, Pickersgill and Winterstein.

Advance tickets for the game are on sale at the new club shop facility situated at Stadium Fitness on Lowerhouse Lane until 4.00pm on Saturday 28 July.
