Hull FC will try and halt the progress of Super League leaders Wigan when they host the Warriors at the KC Stadium on Friday night.

Shaun Wane's Warriors have been the team to beat so far in 2013 and have already been successful on their previous trip to East Yorkshire this season.

Wigan claimed an 84-6 triumph over Hull KR and have now claimed 19 points from their 12 league outings so far in the current campaign.

Hull are in decent form themselves. Head coach Peter Gentle is targeting a fifth consecutive success in all competitions and he's boosted by the return of Shannon McDonnell, Tom Briscoe, Mark O'Meley and Richard Whiting.

The quartet were not risked in last weekend's 62-6 victory over North Wales Crusaders in the Tetley's Challenge Cup but have recovered from minor knocks to take their place in the squad.

Makes way

Jack Briscoe makes way for brother Tom having made his debut for the club in the cup win, while youngsters James Cunningham, Danny Nicklas and Dean Hadley are the other players to miss out.

Wigan welcome back stand-off Blake Green, hooker Michael McIlorum and Liam Farrell, who were all left out of the 19 for last week's home success over Leigh Centurions in the cup.

The only players not in contention for selection through injury are Paul Prescott, ex-Hull man Epalahame Lauaki and Chris Tuson.

Hull FC: Bowden, T. Briscoe, Crookes, Crooks, Green, Heremaia, Horne, Houghton, Johnson, Lineham, Lynch, McDonnell, O'Meley, Pitts, Shaul, Watts, Westerman, Whiting, Yeaman.

Wigan Warriors: Charnley, Crosby, Dudson, Farrell, Flower, Goulding, Green, Hansen, Hughes, McIlorum, Mossop, O'Loughlin, Powell, Richards, Smith, Taylor, Thornley, L. Tomkins, S. Tomkins.
