St Helens acting head coach Mike Rush will also be hoping his players can focus on matters in hand when they take on lowly Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at Langtree Park tonight.

"We listened to the draw on the radio and then it was straight into preview for the Wakefield game," he said.

"We know what we've got to do. We need two points on Friday and then when we wake up on Saturday morning, we can start thinking about the cup."

Saints are boosted by the return of England forward Jon Wilkin while Wakefield's former St Helens forward Paul Johnson comes back from a two-match absence to face his old team, taking the place of Oliver Wilkes, who is out with a thumb injury.

St Helens: 1. Paul Wellens, 3. Michael Shenton, 4. Sia Soliola, 5. Francis Meli, 6. Lance Hohaia, 7. Jonny Lomax, 9. James Roby, 10. Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, 12. Jon Wilkin, 13. Chris Flannery, 14. Anthony Laffranchi, 15. Mark Flanagan, 16. Paul Clough, 19. Andrew Dixon, 20. Lee Gaskell, 21. Tommy Makinson, 25. Carl Forster, 26. Josh Jones, 28. Joe Greenwood.

Wakefield: 1. Richard Mathers, 2. Peter Fox, 3. Dean Collis, 4. Vince Mellars, 5. Ben Cockayne, 6. Isaac John, 7. Kyle Wood, 9. Andy Ellis, 10. Andy Raleigh, 13. Danny Washbrook, 14. Paul Aiton, 15. Kyle Amor, 16. Paul Johnson, 17. Danny Kirmond, 19. Frankie Mariano, 20. Tim Smith, 21. Matt Wildie, 25. Matt James, 32. Paul Sykes.

The game kicks off at 8pm and the referee is Thierry Alibert.
