Last Updated: 14/04/13 2:52pm
Danny Kirmond: skipper returns for Wakefield
Wakefield are set to switch Lee Smith to full-back in place of the injured Richard Mathers for Sunday's visit of Warrington, with Reece Lyne coming in at centre.
The Wildcats have skipper Danny Kirmond back from injury to help offset the loss of prop Justin Poore through suspension, while Frankie Mariano and Kyle Trout are also in contention.
Warrington have centre Chris Bridge returning from injury and he is joined in coach Tony Smith's initial 19-man squad by brother Danny, a 20-year-old back row forward who is called up for the first time. They are added to the side that lost at Leeds last week.
Wakefield prop Kyle Amor is expecting the Wildcats to bounce back from successive defeats, against a Warrington side who themselves have lost four of their last seven games.
He told the club's website: "They are a good quality side and we're fully prepared for everything they are going to throw at us and we've been working on that over the last few days.
"They are a side full of threats and we will try and contain them as much as we can and hopefully put a good performance in.
"They will be looking to bounce back and pick up their form so we'll look to try and put the best performance we can in and hopefully give them a good game."
Wakefield squad: Fox, Collis, L Smith, Cockayne, Sykes, T Smith, Aiton, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Wood, Amor, Wilkes, Mariano, Trout, Mellars, Lyne, Annakin.
Warrington squad: Atkins, C Bridge, D Bridge, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, J Monaghan, M Monaghan, Myler, Ratchford, Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.
