RHYS Lovegrove has named his first Keighley Cougars 19-man squad since being appointed as head coach on a permanent basis ahead of Sunday's trip to Oldham Roughyeds.

Four changes have been forced with Benn Hardcastle and Matt Nicholson (both concussion) sidelined through injury and Louis Sheriff unavailable due to work commitments.

The other forced change is that of Harvey Hallas as the prop is a part of his parent club Dewsbury Rams squad that has travelled to Canada to face the Toronto Wolfpack.

The other changes made by Lovegrove see Taylor Prell and Kieran Moran drop out of the side.

Coming into the side is Ryan Wright, who returned to the club on loan from Hunslet this week, and also Alfie Seeley following an arm injury that forced him to sit out last week's defeat to Hunslet.

Rhys has also called up reserves duo Jordan Aitchison and Cain Crotty, with the former expected to debut at Whitebank.

Lewis Wray also returns following the head injury he sustained in last month's reverse fixture against Oldham.

Cougars: Aitchison; Bailey; Cooke; Coventry; Crotty; Cullimore; Dixon; Feather; Hallett; Horn; Lynam; Miller; Muranka; Parker; Seeley; Thackray; Welham; Wray; Wright.
