Wolves v Vikings: Teams
At Etihad Stadium, Saturday May 26, KO: 4pm, watch live on Sky Sports 3HD
High-flying Warrington take on struggling neighbours Widnes in Saturday's middle game of the Magic Weekend.
The Wolves sit second in the table while the Vikings are rock bottom with just two wins from their first 14 games and have conceded an average of 45 points a match so far.
But Warrington stand-off Lee Briers insists there will be no complacency from his side.
"They're down the ladder in the league but it's still going to be a real tough game for us," said Briers.
"They beat Wigan this year so we won't be complacent, that's for sure. We don't deal in complacency. Not only do you disrespect the other team, you disrespect yourselves and the fans that come to the game."
Warrington have skipper Adrian Morley back from a six-match injury absence while Briers returns, along with Trent Waterhouse and Joel Monaghan, after being rested for last week's game at Wakefield.
But the Wolves are without full-back Brett Hodgson and prop Paul Wood.
"Obviously you want to be playing but, when the boss thinks it's right to rest you, even though you argue your case, he's always right," said Briers.
Vikings head coach Denis Betts admitted he and his players are looking forward to the challenge.
He told the club's official website: "Being a derby game, it's exciting for the players and the fans and the Magic concept obviously adds a little bit of extra spice to proceedings.
"You then have to add in the fact that Warrington can hurt you with a number of plays in any number of ways, so it's going to be a very tough test for us.
"It's massively important that we concentrate on our own performance and look to really kick on in this second half of the season."
Widnes have called 18-year-old Tom Gilmore into their squad as they will be without half-back/hooker Lloyd White, who has damaged knee ligaments.
Loanee Joe Mellor is doubtful with an ankle problem, opening the door for a possible Super League debut for Gilmore.
Warrington: Atkins, Blythe, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Dwyer, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, McCarthy, Monaghan, Morley, O'Brien, Ratchford, Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood
Widnes: Ah Van, Cahill, Clarke, Cross, Davies, Dean, Flynn, Gerrard, Gilmore, Haggerty, Hanbury, Isa, Leuluai, Marsh, Mellor, Mullally, Phelps, Pickersgill and Winterstein
