James Ford has named his Preliminary Squad for this weekend’s match against Whitehaven RLFC with Marcus Stock and Jacob Gannon included and Ryan Atkins set to make his 400th career appearance.

Forward Stock has missed the last two matches after having to isolate due to being a close contact of a Covid-19 case while Gannon has arrived on loan from Warrington this week.

Atkins, with over 350 Super League appearances under his belt, is in line to make his landmark appearance in what would be his seventeenth for the Knights since joining ahead of this season.

Adam Cuthbertson, Kriss Brining, Jordan Baldwinson and Tim Spears all drop out after picking up injuries during last weekend’s 44-14 defeat at Featherstone Rovers.

Sunday’s match against Whitehaven kicks off at the LNER Community Stadium at 3pm and you can get your tickets today from the York SMC Ticket Office. They will also be open from 11am for on the day sales.
