Double winners Wigan Warriors entertain London Broncos at the DW Stadium aiming to build on their four wins in all competitions.

Shaun Wane's side head into the game on the back of a 58-6 Tetley's Challenge Cup demolition job over Championship side Dewsbury Rams last weekend.

And Warriors head coach Wane expects his side to come away with a convincing win and told the club's official website: "Their form has been hit and miss.

"They played well in patches against Catalan and Castleford but they have not been consistent, they are down in confidence.

"If we start the game really fast and we complete like we did in the second half against Dewsbury we should be OK. It is about us concentrating and doing what we do best."

The Londoners suffered a 40-24 Challenge Cup defeat to Catalan Dragons in Perpignan last weekend and have lost seven Super League matches in a row this season, conceding 335 points in the process.

Despite their woeful form, Broncos head coach Tony Rea is looking forward to taking on the reigning champions.

"These are the games you want to play. We're playing against the champions; they've got a great reputation and we're looking forward to the challenge."

Wigan recall full-back Matty Bowen while Anthony Gelling is set to take the place of injured winger Josh Charnley.

Matty Smith, Ben Flower and Liam Farrell are rested, with half-back Sam Powell making his return from a two-month absence with an ankle injury. Young Prop Ryan Sutton has also been included in the 19-man squad.

London have lost prop forward Nick Slyney to suspension and second rower George Griffin with concussion but full-back Nesi Mataitonga is set to return after recovering from a hamstring injury and utility player James Cunningham is added to the squad.

Wigan Warriors squad: Bateman, Bowen, Burgess, Clubb, Dudson, Gelling, Goulding, Green, Hughes, James, McIlorum, O'Loughlin, Pettybourne, S. Powell, Sarginson, Sutton, Taylor, Thornley, Williams

London Broncos squad: Bishay, Caton-Brown, Cook, Cunningham, Drinkwater, Farrar, Foster, Greenwood, Krasniqi, Macani, Mataitonga, McMeeken, Minns, Moore, O'Callaghan, Solomona, Vea, Wallace, Woodburn-Hall
