Warriors v Wildcats: Teams
At DW Stadium, Monday April 9, kick-off 3pm
Wigan Warriors go in search of a seventh consecutive Stobart Super League win against the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on Easter Monday.
Shaun Wane's side have their tails up following an impressive Good Friday success over arch rivals St Helens at Langtree Park.
Wakefield have lost two of their opening nine fixtures and suffered a 34-16 reverse to the Castleford Tigers in Friday's derby at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
Wigan emerged from their tussle with Saints unscathed, meaning only winger Pat Richards is set to miss the game having aggravated a quadracep injury.
Gil Dudson keeps his place in the 19-man squad after making his debut and will be vying with Tom Spencer for a spot on the bench. Former Hull FC forward Epalahame Lauaki returns from suspension.
Wane is taking nothing for granted despite his side's good run of form, saying: "They are well coached by Richard Agar, they will have had a tough game on Friday at Castleford as we did at St Helens, both sides have had the same short turnaround but I am expecting a very tough match.
"Wakefield have two good halves with a very workman like middle unit and it will certainly be another test for us."
Wildcats boss Agar has opted to rotate his squad for their clash with the Cherry and Whites.
Wakefield could give debuts to former London Broncos hooker Andy Ellis as well as youngsters Danny Cowling and Liam Kay
Agar is without Richard Mathers who has been suffering with illness in recent days, Ali Lauitiiti (hamstring), Danny Kirmond, Matt James, who both have calf injuries, and Dean Collis (hamstring), with a number of other players rested ahead of their Challenge Cup game with Leeds Rhinos on Friday.
Wigan: S. Tomkins, Charnley, Goulding, Carmont, Finch, Leuluai, Prescott, McIlorum, Hansen, Hock, Lima, Tuson, Lauaki, Dudson, Gelling, Mellor, Hughes, L. Tomkins, Spencer.
Wakefield: Mariano, Fox, Tony, Mellars, Cowling, John, Wood, Wilkes, Sykes, Spiers, Ellis, Southern, Washbrook, Johnson, Walshaw, Wildie, Amor, Kay, Trout.
