Warrington head coach Tony Smith is relishing the Super League clash with Hull FC on Friday night.

The game at the Halliwell Jones Stadium pitches two in-form sides against each other, with the third-placed Wolves and sixth-placed Airlie Birds both having won four out of their last five league matches.

Smith knows it will be a tough test for his side and he is hoping the home support will help roar the Wolves to victory.

Smith told Sky Sports: "They're in good form.

"They've got some good young players coming through and some real experienced players.


"But I like to think we've got a few as well in both those categories."

He added: "It's a great atmosphere, whether it's Friday or Sunday afternoons are great as well.

"It's a good stadium for atmosphere and we get great support here and we're looking forward to it."

Warrington have scored 107 points in their last three Super League matches and Hull FC head coach Peter Gentle knows his side will have to be at their very best.

"(They are) number one for off-loads, they can attack, they are a very good side," he said.

"They are one of the benchmark sides you like to compare yourself against and we're looking forward to Friday's game."
