Max Jowitt, 17, is in line to make his debut for Wakefield in Sunday's home clash with in-form Warrington.

The England academy full-back has been named in coach Richard Agar's 19-man squad to face the Wolves, who will arrive at the Rapid Solicitors' Stadium full of confidence following their thrashing of second-placed St Helens at the Magic Weekend last Sunday.

Jowitt has not been named in the Wildcats' Under 19 squad to play on Saturday, suggesting that he may have earned himself a starting shirt for the first time in senior colours.

Should he do so, then he is likely to line-up on the wing, given that Jarrod Sammut in the man in possession of the full-back berth.

Wakefield go into Sunday's clash with Warrington looking to end a run of eight straight defeats against the Wolves but will have to do so without talented centre Dean Collis, who suffered a knee injury in the defeat to Castleford last week and will be out for around six weeks after having surgery.

Richard Owen, who signed for the club last week but did not play against his former Tigers team-mates, is another included in the Wildcats' 19-man squad, along with the return of Max Wilby and also Chris Annakin, who has been with Featherstone under the dual registration system. Loose forward Daniel Smith has been left out.

Wakefield's last win against the Wolves was 40-28 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on 21 August, 2009 but they will have to break that run of poor form without winger Chris Riley, who is on loan and will not be able to play under a gentleman's agreement between coaches Agar and Tony Smith.

Chris Hill is set make his 250th career appearance, while fellow England forward Ben Westwood came through last week's win unscathed and will line-up against his former club.

Smith has also called up half-back Richie Myler, who is back in after a six-match absence due to a shoulder injury and told Sky Sports.com: "I am feeling pretty good.

"My rehab has gone well and I am really pleased to be back in action.

"The lads had a good win last week against Saints, but we are under no illusions about the task ahead of us at Wakefield.

"They have had an indifferent start to the year but they have got a good pack of forwards, like Richard Moore.

"They have had to chop and change the halves a bit, but Paul Sykes is always a tough player to be up against and we will have to play well to win there."

Wildcats: Mathers, Fairbank, Annakin, Walshaw, Sykes, Godinet, Anderson, McShane, Jowitt, Kirmond, Washbrook, Ryan, Owen, Wildie, Moore, Siejka, Sammut, Scruton, Molloy

Wolves: Asotasi, Atkins, C. Bridge, Currie, Dwyer, England, B. Evans, R. Evans, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Laithwaite, J. Monaghan, M. Monaghan, Myler, Ormsby, Ratchford, Russell, Westwood
