Stuart Fielden is back for Wigan's Super League tie with Salford on Friday night after serving his one-match suspension.

The England forward was ruled out of the Carnegie Challenge Cup quarter-final between the sides last Friday after being found guilty of raising his knees going into a tackle in defeat at Warrington.

The Warriors still managed to ease through to the last four of the competition, though, thanks to a comfortable 28-6 win over the Reds at the JJB and will be hoping for more of the same this weekend.

Karl Pryce is the man to make way in Brian Noble's 19-man squad, while England call-up Sam Tomkins is included alongside the returning Tim Smith, who is back from compassionate leave in Australia.

Six wins in the league represents a poor return for the Warriors, but they boast an impeccable home record against the Reds over the last decade and will expect to win as they look to force their way into the play-off positions.

Changes

Salford will be without Robbie Paul, meanwhile, because the veteran New Zealander has suffered a neck injury.

His place will be taken by fellow countryman Jeremy Smith, who has missed the last five games with a knee injury.

Winger Darrell Goulding has also been recalled, despite being on loan at The Willows from Wigan.

He was ruled ineligible to play for the Reds in the Cup, but now seems set for a return to the JJB playing for the away team.

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

Salford squad: Wilshere, Henry, Talau, Turner, Stapleton, Smith, Myler, Cashmere, Alker, Jewitt, Sibbit, Parker, Swain, Goulding, Littler, Leuluai, Adamson, Ratchford, Thornley.
