John Cookson, Dave Newton, Dayne Donoghue and Paul Crook will be back in the squad at Barrow while Dean Gorton has an outside chance of playing after recently recovering from a dislocated shoulder.
Stanky's said: "You've got to fight fire with fire when you go up there. You've got to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in, and I'll be starting with a very, very large pack."
Our best guess: Newton, Wood, Cookson in the front row, Bannister and Baines in the second row with Donohue at Loose forward. Braddish, Ekis, Bowman and McDermott on the bench.
