The sides are level in the Super League table on 11 points, Wigan 2nd, Saints in 5th split only by points difference. Wigan go into the game on the back of a 62-4 home win over Widnes Vikings while St Helens were 14-10 victors over Salford in a game played in awful conditions at Langtree Park pn Friday night.

It's the first meeting between the two sides in 2013 and speaking at the pre-match press conference on Tuesday lunchtime Warriors Head Coach Shaun Wane told us he is excited about the prospect of facing Nathan Brown's side,

"Players from both sides know what this means to the fans and to the Club to win these games and there will be alot of desire shown by both sides to win. Past form counts for nothing, this is a one off and it has the makings of a fantastic game.

"I think whoever dominates the middle will win the game, I hope it's us, I am sure Nathan will be saying the same to their team. It's all on the day, who wants it the most. I understand St Helens are a quality team regardless of the players they have out and are a team that can score tries from anywhere. If we go into the game not mentally prepared then we will get turned over."

Asked who the threats in the Saints side were, Shaun added,

"I think Jonny Lomax has been playing outstandingly well and so has Jon Wilkin for them on the edge. They have quality all over the park, Meli on the wing but for me Lomax is the one, his form has been fantastic this season."
