CRAIG Lingard has made a raft of changes to his Keighley Cougars squad for their trip to Newcastle Thunder on Sunday.

Keighley return to League One action following their 1895 Cup defeat, which was also at Thunder.

Harvey Hallas is back following his return from Dewsbury on a week to week basis while Matthew Bailey, James Feather, Jimmy Beckett, Dan Parker and Will Cooke are also restored to the provisional 20-man squad.

More than 1,000 tickets have been sold for Sunday's clash when victory for Cougars would put them on one point, having started the season on -12 following off-field issues.

Cougars squad: Seeley, Cooke, Dixon, Coventry, Feather, Thackray, Lynam, Levy, Muranka, Million, Miller, Cullimore, Bailey, Welham, Parker, Hallett, Arnold, Wray, Beckett, Hallas.
