Vikings injury update

Widnes Vikings head coach Simon Finnigan has provided a full injury update ahead of Saturday’s Betfred Challenge Cup tie against Salford Red Devils.

Kenny Baker and Owen Farnworth are ruled out due to self-isolation and will be hopeful of completing the relevant return to play protocols in time for next week’s visit of Dewsbury Rams.

Matt Cook picked up a back injury against Newcastle Thunder which will keep him out of the trip to the AJ Bell Stadium, while Eribe Doro is unavailable this weekend as he would become cup tied for his parent club.

Calum O’Neill is continuing the relevant steps in order to return from his head injury picked up away to West Wales, while Jayden Hatton is close to a return to full fitness.

Logan Tomkins remains a long-term absentee as he continues his recovery from a foot injury.
