Third-placed Warrington Wolves host the in-form Super League leaders Wigan Warriors at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Monday night.

Wigan have won 11 straight matches in league action since losing at Leeds in March while Warrington come into the contest on the back of three straight successes.

The pair met in round two at the DW Stadium and on that night they could not be separated as Tony Smith's men emerged with a 17-all draw courtesy of Lee Briers' drop-goal.

Warrington have a tough game on the cards against the pace-setters, however, Smith insists he is not worried by the prospect at losing and slipping eight points behind the Warriors.

The Wolves have a near full-strength team available as they have veterans Adrian Morley and Michael Monaghan back with only Rhys Evans and Ben Harrison ruled out.

"I haven't looked at it," said the ex-Leeds and Huddersfield tactician. "I have spent no time thinking about it.

"They have gone really well but we're not too bothered about whether they get top spot or we do. We are just trying to get better and keep in form.

Form

"We will have to be good to beat Wigan, they are the form team of the year so far. They have shown that by where they sit at the moment.

"My job is to get the team to play well each week. We are doing that at the moment. We are pleased with the way we are going about our footy."

England forwards Liam Farrell and Lee Mossop are both set to make their 100th appearance for Wigan but the leaders are still without Sean O'Loughlin, Michael McIlorum, Ben Flower, Gil Dudson and Blake Green.

When asked if Wane was concerned at the real prospect Wigan would lose their unbeaten run, he responded: "I don't think about things like that. I just want to win every game.

"When it comes to Leeds in the last game, no matter what state we are in in the league, I will push the lads hard to win that game as well. That is just the mentality here.

"It's always been a real tough battle with Warrington. It was when I played and I don't think it's changed.

"They deserve all the plaudits they get. They are a really good club. They have got some real talent throughout the squad. I don't see any weaknesses there."

Warrington Wolves: Atkins, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Grix, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, McCarthy, J. Monaghan, M. Monaghan, Morley, Myler, Ratchford, C. Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.

Wigan Warriors: Burke, Charnley, Crosby, Farrell, Gelling, Goulding, Hansen, Hughes, Lauaki, Lloyd, Mossop, Powell, Richards, Smith, Spencer, S. Tomkins, L. Tomkins, Tuson, Williams.
