Both Scottish internationals will start the game on the bench, whilst former England wing Steve Hanley will miss the game due to a slight groin strain; his place on the left-wing will be taken by Chris Mayor.
"We are going into this game on the back of two good wins, but we have some catching up to do with the league leaders. We are expecting a tough game and we are aiming not only to win but to play entertaining rugby too," said Mallinder.
