AMES Tincknell makes his first start since returning from injury as Wharfedale take on Harrogate chasing a

seventh-successive home win.

Tincknell, who has been used as a replacement in the last two matches, comes in at centre as Jamie Guy switches to stand-off to replace the unavailable Tom Barrett.

Josh Prell, who impressed for the Foresters in their Northern Pilot League win over Tynedale last week, returns to to first team duties on the bench.

Wharfedale would love to avenge the 20-17 defeat they suffered at Harrogate earlier in the season.

Both sides have been fighting to pull clear of relegation. Wharfedale are currently 11th and Harrogate 12th. It is a big improvement to when they met previously and were the bottom two teams in National Two North.

Wharfedale: Harry Bullough; Robbie Davidson, Tom Davidson, James Tincknell, Scott Jordan; Jamie Guy, Philip Woodhead; Adam Howard, Dan Stockdale, Toms Asejevs, George Hedgley, Richard Rhodes, Rob Baldwin (c), Lewis Wilson, Josh Burridge Replacements, Jordon Poole, Ian Larkin, James Huck, Jack Kitching, Josh Prell
