Super League leaders Wigan Warriors will be looking to continue their red-hot form when Wakefield Wildcats come to the DW Stadium on Sunday.
The Warriors come in the game on the back of a crushing 84-6 victory over Hull KR on Easter Monday, a result which was the Rovers' club-record loss.
The Wildcats won their first Easter fixture after seeing off Castleford Tigers, but they were undone by Hull FC on Monday following a 34-22 loss on home soil.
Warriors boss Shaun Wane has made two enforced changes to his 19-man squad with skipper Sean O'Loughlin and Winger Josh Charnley missing out through injury.
O'Loughlin is suffering from a back injury which also saw him miss Monday's success at Hull KR and winger Charnley is ruled out following stitches in an ankle wound.
Free-scoring winger Pat Richards is expected to feature in the match despite the fact he is due to land in England on Sunday morning from Australia after being given permission to attend his brother's wedding.
Wane has included winger Anthony Gelling, who has recovered from a knee injury, for the first time since the loss at Huddersfield in February.
"It will be a very tough challenge for us, they are a quality team," Wane told the club's official website. "I watched the game against Hull this morning and they have got threats, they test you everywhere and they have some great players.
"Wakefield are a threat and they tested Hull who had to be really aggressive to beat them and I think that was the reason why they won the game. If we turn up a little bit under done we will get burned and I will make sure in the build-up that doesn't happen."
Meanwhile, Richard Agar has named an unchanged squad for the third successive Super League match.
After suffering a series of injuries around a month ago the Wakefield boss now has a fully fit squad to choose from following the double header over Easter.
"We've got one or two sore bodies as you'd expect this time of year," Agar told the club's official website.
"I think that affected us on Monday's game, I said it after the game I don't think the opposition beat us, I felt we beat ourselves in a lot of respects.
"We have got the option of some fresh blokes and that's the pleasing thing for us. We have got some guys that haven't played any games at all over Easter and we feel they're fit, fresh and probably ready for an opportunity so we'll have a good look where we are."
Wigan Warriors: Burke, Crosby, Dudson, Farrell, Flower, Gelling, Goulding, Green, Hughes, McIlorum, Powell, Smith, Spencer, Taylor, Thornley, L. Tomkins, S. Tomkins, Tuson, Richards.
Wakefield Wildcats: Mathers, Fox, Collis, L. Smith, Cockayne, Sykes, T. Smith, Poore, Aiton, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Wood, Amor, Wilkes, Mellars, Lyne, Annakin.
