YORK City Knights boss James Ford is poised to make four changes in personnel to his side that takes on Widnes Vikings at Bootham Crescent tomorrow.

Josh Jordan-Roberts is out after suffering an ankle injury in the Good Friday defeat at Featherstone, while prop Ronan Dixon, although in the 19-man squad, is a big doubt with injury too.

On loan half-back Lewis Heckford is dropped altogether, and Perry Whiteley, while in the 19, is likely to be replaced on the wing.

Centre Nick Rawsthorne is back in after missing Friday's match with concussion, Brad Hey dropping to the bench, and Judah Mazive is recalled out wide.

Dave Petersen will start at hooker, freeing Will Jubb to partner Connor Robinson in the halves, and Jack Blagbrough will return to the pack ranks. Marcus Stock is set to start in the second row.

Widnes' Aussie centre, Anthony Gelling, who played a starring role in the Challenge Cup tie between the sides last week, is out after suffering a knock in their impressive win over Leigh on Friday.

Likewise Calum O'Neill - whose try on debut sealed that 30-12 victory - is sidelined, with Ben Davies and Lewis Else coming into their 19.

The Vikings are still without Olly Ashall-Bott, Tom Gilmore, Harrison Hansen, Owen Buckley and Dan Norman.

Knights (probable): Marsh, Mazive, Salter, Rawsthorne, Bass, Jubb, Robinson, Horne, Petersen, Teanby, Scott, Stock, Spears. Subs: from Brining, Blagbrough, Baldwinson, Hey, Dixon, Whiteley.

Widnes (possible): Owens, Ince, Brand, Roby, Freeman, Craven, Lyons, J Chapelhow, Johnstone, Cahill, Wilde, Walsh, Leuluai. Subs: from Speakman, E Chapelhow, Davies, Else, Hatton, Walker.

Meanwhile, Joe Batchelor has been recalled from his loan, parent club St Helens have confirmed.

The Knights favourite has been named in Saints' 19-man squad for their Easter Monday game against Hull FC, replacing Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, who is out with a knee injury.

It is unclear if he will remain at Langtree Park thereafter or resume a loan at York. He arrived back at his former club in mid-February and played six times, scoring three tries, including an early double on his debut against Barrow.

The Knights won five of those six games but Saints did not allow him to play in the Challenge Cup or in the Good Friday league defeat at Fev.
