WIDNES Vikings will be looking to take another huge step towards Wembley tonight (Wednesday) when they entertain Dewsbury Rams at the Halton Stadium in the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup quarter final (8pm kick-off).

The new competition, brought in this season, will see the final played after the Challenge Cup Final on 24 August.

But they have to win two big games before they can think of stepping out at Wembley for the first time since 1993.

Coach Kieron Purtill brings in Jack Owens, Danny Craven and Jordan Johnstone in place of Sam Freeman, Jacob Dugdale and Liam Walsh .

Hep Cahill, Olly Ashall-Bott, Owen Buckley and Ryan Ince continue their recovery from injury.

Widnes Vikings 19-man squad: Keanan Brand, Jay Chapelhow, Ted Chapelhow, Danny Craven, Chris Dean, Owen Farnworth, Josh Ganson, Anthony Gelling, Tom Gilmore, Harrison Hansen, Jayden Hatton, Jordan Johnstone, MacGraff Leuluai, Joe Lyons, Dan Norman, Jack Owens, Lloyd Roby, Brad Walker, Sam Wilde.

Dewsbury boss Lee Greenwood has made eight changes to his squad ahead of the quarter-final clash, as Simon Brown, Lewis Heckford, Ben Kilner, Daniel King, Martyn Reilly, Jacob Thomas, Daniel Waite-Pullman and Harvey Whiteley all come in.

A noticeable absentee for the Rams is influential halfback Paul Sykes, with both Owen and Kyle Trout also missing out.

Dewsbury Rams 19-man squad: Simon Brown, Liam Finn, Andrew Gabriel, Lewis Heckford, Luke Hooley, Daniel Igbinedion, Ben Kilner, Daniel King, Frazer Morris, Martyn Reilly, Toby Richardson, Adam Ryder, Jode Sheriffe, Jacob Thomas, Daniel Waite-Pullan, Lucas Walshaw, Robbie Ward, Harvey Whiteley, Rob Worrincy.
