Wigan will be looking to prove last week's loss to Widnes was just a temporary blip when they welcome London Broncos to the DW Stadium.

The Cherry and Whites missed out on the chance to take over at the Super League summit when they went down 37-36 at the Stobart Stadium.

Coach Shaun Wane opted to rest five of his first-team stars for the clash with the Vikings, handing debuts to youngsters Logan Tomkins, Matthew Russell, Joe Mellor and Anthony Gelling.

They led 18-6 and then 36-18, only to be pegged back on both occasions before a drop goal from Lloyd White 10 minutes from time settled matters.

Wane seems to be taking no chances this weekend, recalling Sam Tomkins, Pat Richards, Thomas Leuluai and skipper Sean O'Loughlin to his 19-man squad.

Carmont returns

George Carmont is welcomed back from a broken thumb and Harrison Hansen is named despite picking up a slight hip problem last time out.

There's a place for Paul Prescott too, the forward having made a couple of outings for the South Wales Scorpions following surgery in the off-season.

The Broncos, meanwhile, head up north looking to build on their maiden success of the campaign.

The capital club finally registered their first points in 2012 with a 42-16 triumph over Castleford at the Twickenham Stoop, David Howell bagging two of their eight tries.

Coach Rob Powell has, unsurprisingly, named an unchanged 19-man party, particularly with Shane Rodney still unavailable through injury.

"It's the same 19 following the win last week against Castleford," Powell said. "That game has given the team some confidence and following a good week training we are looking to back it up against Wigan this weekend."

Wigan: S. Tomkins, Charnley, Goulding, Carmont, Richards, Finch, Leuluai, Prescott, McIlorum, Hansen, Hock, O'Loughlin, Lima, Farrell, Tuson, Lauaki, Flower, Russell, Spencer.

London Broncos: Bailey, Bryan, Clubb, Colbon, Cook, Dorn, Golden, Gower, Howell, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Melling, O'Callaghan, Randall, Rinaldi, Robertson, Sarginson, Temata, Witt.
