Featherstone Rovers welcome Oldham to the Millenium Stadium on Saturday, with both sides playing their first match in almost a year.

Featherstone have not played since their 46-6 win over Hunslet in March, while Oldham’s last game saw them beaten at home to Dewsbury Rams a week earlier.

Both sides will be hoping to pick up their match sharpness before their Challenge Cup ties against Bradford Bulls and Barrow Raiders respectively.

The match kicks off at 1.30pm and the referee will be Liam Moore.

Tom Holmes and Connor Jones are set to return after re-signing with Featherstone from Super League clubs Huddersfield Giants and Salford Red Devils.

Meanwhile, Brett Ferres and Joe Summers are both unavailable with injury, Junior Moors is awaiting VISA clearance and Thomas Minns is recovering from a knock.
