DALE Ferguson is poised to make his long-awaited comeback from injury in Friday's derby clash against Leeds at Headingley.

The Scotland World Cup star has been sidelined by a persistent back problem and other minor niggles during a nightmare debut campaign at Odsal.

But he is now in line to feature for the first time since the home win against Wakefield on June 1 while teenage hooker Nathan Conroy is also in the 19-man squad.

But Matt Diskin and Chev Walker remain sidelined and Brett Kearney misses out after suffering concussion against Wigan last weekend.

Danny Williams will also feature after agreeing an extension to his loan from Salford Red Devils for another month.

The 19-man squad: Danny Addy, Joe Arundel, Jordan Baldwinson, Matty Blythe, Nathan Conroy, James Donaldson, Jamal Fakir, Dale Ferguson, Luke Gale, Lee Gaskell, Adam Henry, Elliot Kear, Manase Manuokafoa, Alex Mellor, Adam O'Brien, Tom Olbison,  Jay Pitts, Adam Sidlow, Danny Williams.

Ha ha birchlane. I was really looking forward to Ferguson playing a big part this year. Unfortunately injuries have prevented this. On his day he is a devastating runner. Let's hope he can get back to his best.

Agree with you lets hope his injuries are all behind him, and I don't mean his bad back!! He should be like a new signing all over again
