Castleford coach Ian Millward is hoping the return of some familiar faces will help his side get their season back on track when they kick off the two-day Magic Weekend against Wakefield on Saturday in Manchester.
The Tigers, whose last win away from home was against the Wildcats on Good Friday, are reeling from that 70-12 mauling by Hull KR, after which the players issued a public apology.
Ryan McGoldrick remains suspended but half-backs Rangi Chase and Danny Orr are back while prop Paul Jackson is poised to make his first appearance of the season and winger Rhys Williams makes his debut.
"We played extremely well at Wakefield," Millward said. "It was one of our best performances of the year.
"We'd beaten Hull KR the previous week. We've got to get back into a rhythm if we can.
"Having Rangi back will be massive for us. He's been out for six weeks with all the breaks.
"I think having Danny back as well will make a big difference and we're going to bring Jacko in, plus Rhys Williams. That gives us a bit more freshness."
Wakefield coach Richard Agar admits the return of Chase, the reigning Man of Steel who has completed a three-match suspension, adds to the size of his team's task.
"They are going to be a different team with him in there," Agar said. "It is the Magic Weekend, it's a big stage and a big stadium and he's going to want to come back firing."
