The pair have both been included in coach Daryl Powell’s 19-man squad for the third versus first Betfred Super League showdown.

Foster has missed two games due to a groin injury and Milner sat out last Friday’s win over Hull KR because of damage to a knee.

Cory Aston has retained his place in the initial squad and will make his Super League debut if selected.

Tigers prop Grant Millington is due to appear before the Rugby Footbnall League’s disciplinary committee on Tuesday afternoon.

He was handed a two-game penalty notice after being sin-binned for punching against Hull KR and is not included in Tigers’ initial squad, but could be added if the match review panel’s verdict is overturned.

The case will be heard by judge Rodney Grant and former players Danny Sculthorpe and Stuart Fielden.

Lewis Peachey is the other player to drop out from last week’s 19.

Warrington coach Steve Price has named an unchanged squad.

He will select from the 17 who lost at Catalans Dragons last week, plus Danny Walker and Ben Westwood.

Castleford Tigers’ initial squad is: Cory Aston, James Clare, Chris Clarkson, Matt Cook, Greg Eden, Tuoyo Egodo, Alex Foster, Nathan Massey, Peter Mata’utia, Paul McShane, Adam Milner, Greg Minikin, Junior Moors, Jacques O’Neill, Jordan Rankin, Jesse Sene-Lefao, Michael Shenton, Jake Trueman, Liam Watts.

Warrington Wolves’ 19 is: Ryan Atkins, Blake Austin, Josh Charnley, Daryl Clark, Jason Clark, Mike Cooper, Bryson Goodwin, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, Toby King, Tom Lineham, Jake Mamo, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Declan Patton, Joe Philbin, Stefan Ratchford, Lama Tasi, Danny Walker, Ben Westwood.
