Warrington Wolves head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith believes the team which concentrates the most will win Saturday's clash with Wakefield.

Both sides have all to play for at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, with the third-placed Wolves just a point off the top of Super League, while tenth-placed Wildcats are three points away from the play-offs.

The Wolves go into the clash on the back of five league and cup wins at home, and bounced back from an away defeat at Hull FC with a 40-30 victory at Castleford last time.

Smith is expecting a tricky game against a team his side beat 41-34 when they last met in April.

"They're a good team that wants to win," he told the club's official website.

Good opposition

"I think they're going to be a good opposition for us...it's a tricky game for both teams and the team that concentrates the most will come out on top.

"The last time we played them we probably didn't finish off our sets as well as we needed to and let them back in the game after a healthy start and you need to concentrate for the full 80 against Wakefield, so hopefully we can do that on Saturday."

For the Wildcats, Richard Agar has made three changes to his 19-man squad as his side seek to bounce back from a narrow 26-24 defeat to Bradford last time.

Matty Wildie, Liam Kay and Bobbie Gouding come into the squad, with Justin Poore, Dean Collis and Danny Cowling missing out.

Goulding, who has spent much of the season on loan at Dewbsury Rams, could make his competitive debut for the Wildcats in the clash, while Kay could feature for the first time in Super League this year.

Warrington 19-man squad: C. Bridge, Briers, Carvell, Currie, Dwyer, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, Laithwaite, McCarthy, J. Monaghan, M. Monaghan, Ratchford, C. Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.

Wakefield 19-man squad: Mathers, Fox, L. Smith, Cockayne, T. Smith, Aiton, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Amor, Wilkes, Mariano, Trout, Lyne, Wildie, Goulding, Kay, Tautai.
