75 Richards has missed the long-range conversion.

74 Bailey has lost the plot and just gives Wigan a penalty by laying on Tomkins.

74 Richards has missed the conversion, but it shouldn't matter.

74 Smith make the break on the last instead of going for the drop goal. The hosts kept it alive and Charnley had the easiest chance to settle the contest.

74 That should be that. Wigan have scored again! Charnley has gone over.

70 Matty Smith went for the drop goal, but it was a bit of a shocker.

63 Grubber kick by McGuire and it'll be a goal line drop-out from Wigan.

63 Leeds have a penalty for a late hit on McGuire.

61 Outstanding tackle from Hansen denies Moon. The centre beat Tomkins and had the line to go for before being denied.

58 TRY for Wigan! Goulding has scored.

56 Mistake from Watkins has gifted the ball back to Wigan.

53 Richards has added the extras. Wigan's six-point advantage is restored.

52 The video referee is having a look at the grounding, but that's a try. Wigan are back in front.

51 Farrell crashes over for Wigan, but Bentham has called upon the video referee.

50 McGuire knocks on after Achurch tries to offload. Wigan in a good position now.

48 McGuire has been put on report for pushing on Green's arm. Leeds not been penalised, but the review panel will have a look at it.

46 Sinfield adds the extras.

46 Leeds have scored a try. Ablett breaks through Wigan's defence. He is able to run and run. He had support from Moon and he picked out the centre who coasts home. Kick to come.

44 Good run from Achurch boosts Leeds' field position, but their kick on the last is poor. Watkins is struggling for Leeds.

41 Wigan get the second half underway. Leeds have ball in hand.

The teams are back out for the second half.

The half-time hooter goes and it's Wigan who are leading Leeds 6-0.

37 Wigan are finally denied when Green's kick bounces out of play.

36 Leeds bomb it on the right. Richards breaks clear and only an amazing stop from Kirke halts his progress.

17 Another mistakes from Leeds. This time is Jones-Buchanan who drops the ball.

15 Leeds find space down their right-hand side, but Jones-Bishop is bundled into touch. Wigan have the ball back.

10 Leeds have survived. Jones-Buchanan blocks the grubber kick and then gathers possession.

8 It's all Wigan now. Hardaker drops the bomb so the Warriors will have it back.

4 Good response from Wigan. Tomkins makes a break, but Leeds bring him down. Wigan then kick for the corner but Jones-Bishop takes the ball ahead of Richards.

2 Jones-Bishop goes for the try line, but the video referee has spotted that Leeds' winger has dropped it. No try

1 Leeds get the contest underway! Wigan have the ball first.

The teams are out on the pitch!

We're just ten minutes away from the big kick-off here at the DW Stadium!

It is interesting to note that champions Leeds have won 15 of their last 16 play-off games.

Here are the teams for tonight's clash from the DW Stadium:

Wigan: S. Tomkins, Charnley, Goulding, Thornley, Richards, Green, Smith, Dudson, McIlorum, Mossop, Hansen, Farrell, Flower. Replacements: Hughes, L. Tomkins, Crosby, Taylor.

Leeds: Hardaker, Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Sinfield, Leuluai, Burrow, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Bailey. Replacements: Clarkson, Achurch, Kirke, Sutcliffe.

Leeds are hoping to reach Old Trafford for an incredible eighth time in ten years while Wigan are hoping to make it to Manchester since the featuring in the 2010 final. That year they beat Leeds to reach Old Trafford before toppling St Helens and becoming champions.

These teams met at this stage last year. Against the odds it was Leeds who emerged victorious with a 13-12 success from the DW Stadium.
