Wakefield coach John Kear is likely to pick his strongest team of the season so far for Sunday's clash with Wigan at Belle Vue.

Hooker Sam Obst is back from compassionate leave in Australia and centre Ryan Atkins has shaken off an ankle knock to be included in the home side's 19-man squad.

Having been hit by injuries at the start of the campaign, Kear also has a selection headache in the pack with Danny Sculthorpe pushing for a recall.

Jamie Rooney and Ricky Bibey are both still sidelined though it is hoped the pair will be able to start full training next week.

The Wildcats have not lost in the engage Super League since March, when they suffered their only defeat on home soil in 2009 against current league leaders St Helens.

They have also already beaten the Warriors once this season, triumphing 12-6 in the reverse fixture on the opening weekend of the campaign.

Same again

Wigan coach Brian Noble looks likely to go with the same side that hammered Celtic Crusaders on home soil last week.

Second-rower Harrison Hansen has failed to recover from a leg injury in time to be considered for selection.

Having been rested for the home game last Sunday, Shaun Ainscough - the club's leading try-scrorer - will be hoping to earn a place in the final 17.

In a further boost for fans of the Cherry and Whites, scrum-half Thomas Leuluai this week put pen-to-paper on a new three year contract.

Wakefield squad: Blaymire, Blanch, Martin, Atkins, Brough, Demetriou, Drew, Sculthorpe, Snitch, Wilkes, Grix, Obst , Henderson, Gleeson, Leo-Latu, Ferguson, Moore, Bibb, Pitts.

Wigan squad: Roberts, Carmont, Richards, Smith, Leuluai, Fielden, Riddell, Paleaaesina, Hock, Bailey, O'Loughlin, J. Tomkins, Coley, McIlorum, Prescott, Pryce, Phelps, Gleeson, S. Tomkins.
