FIVE of Widnes Vikings' key performers are set for comebacks against Warrington Wolves on Friday after being named in the 19-man squad.

Chris Bridge, Rangi Chase, Rhys Hanbury, Chris Houston and Lloyd White are all in contention.

Alex Gerrard misses out as he serves the first game of a two-match suspension.

Denis Betts' side will be aiming to record a victory in their first Middle 8s game in order to kick-start the club's bid to retain their Super League status over the next seven weeks.
