MARTYN Ridyard is again missing as Leigh prepare to bring the curtain down on their 2015 season at Widnes on Sunday.

The half-back missed the defeat against Bradford Bulls last Saturday with Ben Reynolds coming in to replace him.

Centurions cannot qualify for the so-called Million Pound play-off game but are targeting sixth spot to ensure a bigger chunk of prize money to help boost their recruitment plans for 2016.

The game is likely to be Oliver Wilkes’ last for Leigh. He is expected to join Barrow next season.

Former Centurions player Aaron Heremaia is included in the Widnes squad.

Leigh squad: McNally, Pownall, Dixon, Reynolds, Brierley, Emmitt, Worthington, Beswick, Spencer, Wilkes, Aspinwall, Goulden, Higham, Armstrong, Moimoi, Hock, Haggerty, Kay, Pala.

Widnes squad: Ah Van, Brown, Cahill, J. Chapelhow, Craven, Dean, Dudson, Flynn, Gerrard, Gilmore, Hanbury, Heremaia, Manuokafoa, Mellor, Owens, Runciman, Tickle, White, Whitley.
