Warrington welcome Wakefield hoping to keep up at the top

Warrington Wolves welcome Wakefield Trinity to the Haliwell Jones Stadium on Friday, hoping to keep the pressure on St Helens at the top of the Super League.

The Wolves come into the game off the back of a surprise defeat against relegation threatened Hull KR last week, while Wakefield were defeated themselves at Salford Red Devils.

The home side welcome back Daryl Clark and Joe Philbin after they were rested last week.

Meanwhile, for an injury hit Wakefield, they may rely on youngsters Titus Gwaze and Connor Bailey, but they do welcome back David Fifita and Mason Caton-Brown for the game.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm.

Key Battles

Chris Hill vs. David Fifita- Two of the biggest forwards in the Super League go head to head here. Both show great power and know where the try line is. These two are definitely the dangers in the forward packs.

Josh Charnley vs. Ben Jones-Bishop- Two of the most decorated wingers in the modern game, the pair have played in their fair share of Grand Finals. Both have speed and fantastic finishing ability, no matter how tight the angle is.

Prediction

Warrington cannot afford to drop anymore points, and I don’t feel as though they will here.
