KEIGHLEY Cougars have only been able to name a 19-man squad for their clash with London Skolars this weekend, as coronavirus problems at the club continue to have an effect.

It means a potentially dramatic return for Aidan Scully, who has not played a game for Cougars in four years.

Keighley were missing a few players for their game with West Wales Raiders the other week, and were forced to postpone their clash with Coventry last Sunday.

But with some players returning from isolation, they are just about able to put a team out for the game with London.

Jake Webster, who was originally planned to be rested as a precautionary measure, returns as does Billy Gaylor (shoulder) following injury.

There are also returns to the side for Brenden Santi, Mo Agoro, who is set to make his 150th career appearance on Sunday, and Alfie Seeley.

Scully is named by the head coach in the squad, with his previous appearance coming in a 30-30 draw away at Workington Town during the 2017 Super Eights play-offs.

Bobby Darbyshire (concussion), Wellington Albert (ankle), and Alix Stephenson (leg) are ruled out through injury.

All remaining unavailable players have been stood down, or made unavailable, by the RFL under Covid-19 protocols after being identified of close contacts of those who have tested positive in the previous weeks.

The club are currently continuing to follow the Covid-19 protocols put in place by the governing body following the positive tests recorded over the last fortnight.

These players should be cleared to return to training by the governing body upon the completion of their isolation periods and return of a negative lateral flow test.

This means they should be available for selection once again for the fixture away at the North Wales Crusaders next weekend.

Keighley have had to cancel a big event tonight as a result of the Covid situation, with 'An Evening with Rhys Lovegrove' in Cougar Park's Hall of Fame Bar having to be pushed back to a later date.
