Harlequins RL need to improve their away form if they are to keep alive their play-off hopes as they prepare to take on Warrington Wolves.
Quins have won four of their last five home matches, including a 30-28 success over Warrington, to pull away from the relegation zone but they have not won on their travels since May.
Coach Brian McDermott, whose side have the chance to close the gap on sixth-placed Warrington to a point, has the luxury of being able to recall captain Mark McLinden to the team that beat Bradford Bulls at the Stoop.
McLinden missed last week?s win with a back problem while second rower Joe Mbu and centre Zeb Luisi are also fit to return after recovering from shoulder injuries.
Warrington have won their last two home games but seven successive away defeats have undermined their play-off aspirations.
"There have been many examples of great offence in our recent defeats but lapses in concentration have cost us dearly," said Wolves coach Paul Cullen.
"The team is growing in confidence after months of injuries and poor results but we hope to emerge with a focused and determined run into the finals."
Warrington Wolves 18-man squad: Grose, Fa?afili, M Gleeson, Kohe-Love, Reardon, Briers, Sullivan, Leikvoll, Swann, Wainwright, M Gleeson, Westwood, Wood, Barnett, Rauhihi, Bracek, Bridge, Cooper.
Harlequins RL 18-man squad: Bradley-Qalilawa, Budworth, Dorn, Gafa, Haumono, Heckenberg, Hopkins, Lucky Luisi, Mills, Noone, Paul, Purdham, Randall, Smith, Stewart, Sykes, Tookey, Williams.
