Wigan Warriors coach Shaun Wane had made one change to his squad for Friday's clash with crisis club Bradford Bulls.

Ben Flower, who missed Monday night's victory over Widnes, has recovered from a knock and he replaces Paul Prescott who misses out with thumb and ankle injuries.

Jeff Lima is again ruled out after taking a blow to his face in training last week.

In what could be Bradford's last ever game because of their off-field financial crisis, the Bulls welcome back Chev Walker.

Walker last played in the Magic Weekend at the Etihad Stadium where he damaged his ribs against Leeds. He replaces Danny Addy in the squad.

Sad

Wane said: "It is sad what is happening there, they may well have a siege mentality. I don't know what the details are regarding Bradford, they are one of the best known Club's in the competition and it is very sad.

"Mick Potter and his backroom staff have done a great job and they will turn up I'm sure full of enthusiasm and we need to make sure we are ready to get the two points."

Potter is hoping his players will be mentally right as they cope with the uncertainty over the financial crisis that is threatening to engulf the club.

The Bulls went into administration on Tuesday, giving them 10 working days to find new investment or be liquidated.

Potter admits going into administration has been a distraction for his players, who held talks with the Rugby Football League yesterday afternoon, but is hoping it is business as usual against the Cherry and Whites.

"Nothing changes for us," he said. "The players know what they have got to do."

Wigan: S Tomkins, Charnley, Goulding, Carmont, Finch, McIlorum, Mossop, Hock, O'Loughlin, Farrell, Tuson, Lauaki, Flower, Gelling, Hughes, L Tomkins, Crosby, Murphy

Bradford: Ainscough, Bateman, Burgess, Elima, Gale, Hargreaves, Jeffries, Kearney, Langley, L'Estrange, Lulia, Manuokafoa, O'Brien, Olbison, Platt, Pryce, Sammut, Walker, Whitehead.
