Lewis Charnock will make his return from suspension tomorrow as the half-back has served his eight-match ban for his involvement in the season-ending tackle on James Glover at the Summer Bash and is ready to help his side in their relegation dog fight.

The 24-year old caused knee ligament damage to the Sheffield Eagles player, who is expected to be out for a minimum of nine months, and was found guilty a Grade F charge for the incident and fined £250.

However, the ex-St Helens player has now done his time and head coach Paul Crarey can't wait to get him back involved, despite the brilliant performances from local players Jake Carter and Ryan Johnson in recent weeks.

Crarey said: "It's good to have him back, the young lads, Jake Carter and Ryan Johnson, have done a great job in there, and they are the future of this club.

"But Lewis gives us that bit of steel on an edge and he only misses around 3.5 per cent of his tackles so he's definitely a plus to have back again.

"It's a fact that if we don't defend our edges well we don't win games so we've got to go with our strongest side defensively.

"People from the crowd don't see how solid Lewis is and hopefully we can then do a number on them because we know we can score points against the best of teams.

"We also know we are playing a side full of confidence and who are going to be hard to break down but we believe we can do it."

Charnock will reignite his partnership with Jamie Dallimore, who has been orchestrating the Raiders' attack as of late.

However, the former North Wales Crusaders man has been handed a one-match suspension for his sin-bin offence last weekend against Leigh for punching one of the visiting players.

As a consequence, Dallimore will not be available for the home game against York City Knights on the August 4, which is certain to be another vital match for the Raiders.
