Super League preview: Wakefield Wildcats v London Broncos
Last Updated: 23/06/13 3:10pm
Wakefield Wildcats have been forced to make once change ahead of Sunday's Super League encounter with the London Broncos at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
The suspension of hooker Paul Aiton has forced head coach Richard Agar's hand following the comprehensive 46-10 victory over the Salford City Reds last time out.
Prop forward Andy Raleigh is back in the squad to deputise for Aiton while Matty Wildie looks set to get a start after impressing coach Agar.
"I'm pleased for Matty because he has had to wait an awful long time for his chance and right from the off he has impressed me," the Wildcats coach said.
"He's a super club man and a great guy to have around the place and he's been patient and now he's earned himself an opportunity."
Agar will also be hoping Dean Collis' form continues to prevail with the centre scoring in the Wildcats last four outings.
Meanwhile, Broncos head coach Tony Rea has named four debutants in his 19-man squad for the trip north.
Under 19 squad members Joe Wicks and Harry Little both feature in the traveling party for the first time while Mason Caton-Brown could also make his Super League bow having impressed on dual registration with Hemel Stags.
"There's real strength in our u19s and they are playing really well," Rea said.
"They've earned the right; they have a great passion for the club and are strong players with a great ability to play the game."
Loan signing Jacob Fairbank from Huddersfield Giants slots straight into the side for Sunday's clash and is expected to make his debut.
The Broncos are still without 11 regular starters as their injury list continues to grow with Michael Witt, Matt Cook and Chris Bailey amongst those unavailable.
Wakefield: Mathers, Fox, Collis, L. Smith, Cockayne, Sykes, T. Smith, Poore, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Wood, Amor, Wilkes, Mariano, Lyne, Wildie, Walshaw.
London: Bishay, Bryant, Caton-Brown, Channing, Colbon, Dixon, Dollapi, Dorn, Fairbank, Fisher, Grady, Hurst, Krasniqi, Little, Melling, Robertson, Sarginson, Wheeldon, Wicks.
