Warrington play the London Broncos on Friday night in their last Super League game prior to doing battle with Leeds at Wembley.

The Wolves are now a point behind Wigan in the race for the League Leaders' Shield following last weekend's 30-10 success over the Warriors.

Warrington have won five straight in league action since their surprise loss at Salford and are the favourites to reclaim the Challenge Cup trophy they lifted in 2009 and 2010.

London will not be laying down the red carpet for Warrington with the side rejuvenated under coach Tony Rea following back-to-back victories, including a 42-20 win at Castleford last week.

Michael Robertson returns to Rea's squad after recovering from injury while Will Lovell is also back after recovering from illness.

Dan Sarginson continues to make good progress in his recovery from an ankle injury while Liam Colbon and Matt Cook remain sidelined with respective shoulder and ligament injuries.

Centre David Howell made his 100th appearance for the Broncos against the Tigers and he knows London will need to be at their best to topple Warrington.

Tough

"It's going to be tough," he commented. "Warrington are one of the benchmark teams and everyone is going to have to put in a real shift for the full 80 minutes.

"But that is what we have to do for the last games of the season; put in good performances so we can start to build towards next season."

Wolves coach Tony Smith has made a number of changes to his 19-man squad ahead of their trip to the capital.

Youngster Ben Currie is back in the fold after his tour of Australia with England's academy while Rhys Williams is available following a loan spell with Castleford.

Winger Joel Monaghan is keen for the Wolves to maintain their impressive form ahead of next week's Challenge Cup final.

"We're looking forward to keeping this roll going and then going into the cup final in good form," he told the Warrington Guardian.

"This is a big game for us. We've closed the gap on Wigan and so every game is a big game now."

London Broncos: Bailey, Bolger, Bryan, Caro, Clubb, Dixon, Dorn, Gower, Howell, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Lovell, Melling, O'Callaghan, Randall, Rinaldi, Robertson, Wheeldon, Witt.

Warrington: Atkins, Blythe, C. Bridge, Cooper, Currie, Evans, Grix, Higham, Hill, McCarthy, M. Monaghan, Morley, Myler, Ratchford, Riley, Solomona, Waterhouse, Williams, Wood.
