Widnes v Hull preview
Kevin Brown is set to make his Widnes debut when the Vikings take on Hull FC at the Stobart Stadium on Saturday.
Half-back Brown joined Widnes in the off-season but missed the start of the 2013 Super League campaign through injury.
Vikings coach Denis Betts also brings winger Patrick Ah Van back into his 19-man squad, while prop Ben Cross returns to the fold after serving a one-match suspension.
Shaun Briscoe, Phil Joseph and Macgraff Leuluai make way for the trio of Ah Van, Brown and Cross. Widnes have not played since a 44-18 defeat to Hull KR two weeks' ago due to Leeds' participation in the World Club Challenge.
Hull FC boss Peter Gentle has made one change to his 19-man squad following the 24-10 defeat to high-flying Warrington last time out.
Danny Tickle, who made a return as a late replacement last weekend, is named in the initial squad this time along with Daniel Holdsworth, who missed out on match-day last weekend with a concussion. Brett Seymour drops out.
Widnes are looking to end a run of two straight defeats as they return home for the first time since the February 10 while Hull are also looking for their first win in three.
Widnes squad: Ah Van, Allen, K Brown, Cahill, Clarke, Cross, Dean, Flynn, Gerrard, Hanbury, Hock, Kavanagh, Marsh, Mellor, O'Carroll, Phelps, Pickersgill, White, Winterstein.
Hull FC squad: Arundel, Briscoe, Crookes, Galea, Green, Heremaia, Holdsworth, Horne, Houghton, Johnson, Lineham, Lynch, McDonnell, O'Meley, Pitts, Tickle, Westerman, Whiting, Yeaman.
