Wigan Warriors will need to pick themselves up quickly from Sunday's PROBIZ World Club Challenge defeat as they face a trip to face Salford on Friday night.

After a disappointing defeat against St George Illawara, it is back to Super League business for Wigan, as they play Salford with the Reds without head coach Shaun McRae for the next month on medical grounds.

Wigan boss Michael Maguire has prop Jeff Lima back in his 19-man squad after missing the last two games with suspension, while the only other change sees Josh Charnley come in to replace the injured Martin Gleeson.

Sean O'Loughlin also left Sunday's game along with Gleeson through injury, but he is fit enough to take his place in the squad, as does Paul Prescott.

The Warriors continue to be without Stuart Fielden despite Maguire being hopeful of him returning from his knee problem in time to face Salford.

Meanwhile, Pat Richards is still out with an Achilles problem while Brett Finch's neck will also keep him out for around a month.

"Pat and Brett are making good progress and are probably about a month or so away," said Maguire. "We won't be rushing either of them, it's a case of sitting down with them and the medical staff and making sure we do the right things."

Godwin back

Director of rugby Steve Simms will take charge of the Reds in the absence of Shaun McRae, who has been told by doctors to take a month off, and assistant boss Phil Vievers.

Salford have hooker Wayne Godwin back in their ranks after completing a two-game suspension, meaning he can make his home debut at the Willows.

Godwin's return is the only change to the team that won at bottom club Wakefield last time out.

"Wigan are a great team but they had a tough one last week," said Simms. "St George battered them a little bit and I'm hoping they're still feeling the effects."

"We won last week and we've got the champions and probably the best team in the competition here tomorrow night.

"That's great because you want to play against the best. Our players want to test themselves against Wigan.

"I know if we've got 17 players who can play at their best, we can beat anybody on any given day, which we've proven in the past. All we're looking for is that those players put their hands up."

Salford: Patten, Broughton, Henry, Nero, Gibson, Ratchford, Holdsworth, Neal, Boyle, Jewitt, Godwin, Adamson, Wild, Smith, Sneyd, Parker, Paleaaesina, Sidlow, Cashmere.

Wigan: S. Tomkins, Goulding, Carmont, Deacon, Leuluai, McIlorum, Coley, Hansen, J. Tomkins, O'Loughlin, Prescott, Lima, Hoffman, Roberts, Mossop, Farrell, Tuson, Marsh, Charnley.
