Tim Sheens has named the same 17 players who beat the Dragons last Saturday night in this week's side to take on the Bulldogs with the addition of Ben Murdoch-Masila.
Murdoch-Masila has recovered from an ankle injury suffered in the Round 20 loss to the Cowboys and has been named on a five man bench.
The Bulldogs have the wood on Wests Tigers having won four out of the last five matches between the two sides.
However Wests Tigers five-eighth Benji Marshall, who needs just 13 points to reach 1000, said the side is moving in the right direction.
"We're building confidence the last couple of weeks with our wins. They will be high in confidence as well," he said.
"If we can limit their opportunities in our half it will go a long way towards us winning.
"This week we'll really get a good look at where we are as a team and I'm very confident in our ability. We just need to put it together on the field."
