The Warriors go into the home clash on the back of a 26-20 Super League victory against the Bradford Bulls last Friday.
Wane is hopeful several of his players can come back from injury for the game, although he only rates star man Tomkins as 50/50.
He told the club's official website: "Ryan Hampshire turned his ankle (against the Bulls) and has again today in training. Michael McIlorum has a slight problem with his knee but I am expecting him to be fit.
"There is a good chance on Lee Mossop being fit for next week, there is less of a chance on Sam Tomkins and a chance for Sean O'Loughlin but even less than a chance for him. I would say its 90 per cent, 50 per cent and 30 per cent chance on those players being fit and ready for the Widnes game."
Regarding other injuries, he added: "Scott Taylor is still not running with his hipflexor, he is three weeks off and Hame (Epalahame Lauaki) is also three or so weeks off.
"Darrell Goulding should be okay to return so we will have three centres for two spaces with Gells (Anthony Gelling) and Iain (Thornley) so that's good."
