Wigan host Wakefield as both look to put derby disappointment behind them

Posted by

Wigan Warriors host Wakefield Trinity at the DW Stadium on Thursday night as both sides look to put recent defeats behind them.

The Warriors are looking to get back on track after falling to a disappointing defeat against bitter rivals St Helens.

Trinity also lost out last Friday against West Yorkshire rivals Castleford Tigers.

Wigan have made two changes from that game as Joe Bullock and Tommy Leuluai both miss out through injury. They have been replaced by youngsters Jack Wells and Ethan Havard.

As for Wakefield, they make one change as Chris Annakin comes back into the squad and replaces Craig Kopczak who has a thigh injury.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm.

Key Battles

Liam Marshall vs. Mason Caton-Brown- Two very capable try scorers that could well have their say on the game. Both have an incredible turn of pace and are a danger to any defence.

Prediction

I can see Wigan winning this one comfortably, despite that result last week, they are in good form, but Wakefield are bang out of form, winning just one of their last eight. I think Wigan will win by 16. (6/1 Betfred)
