return to Stobart Super League action at the DW Stadium on Friday with the visit of Bradford.
The Bulls off the field problems have been well documented this week with the Club sadly now in administration with uncertainty over what will happen.
Despite this Warriors Head Coach Shaun Wane is convinced this situation will only help to galvanise everyone from the Grattan Stadium,
"It is sad what is happening there, they may well have a seige mentality. I don't know what the details are regarding Bradford, they are one of the best known Club's in the competition and it is very sad.
"Mick Potter and his backroom staff have done a great job and they will turn up I'm sure full of enthusiasm and we need to make sure we are ready to get the two points.
"I am expecting a very tough battle on Friday, I have watched their last five games, they are a quality team, they have some great players, some real quality runners so we need to be at our best. I have looked at their attack but if our 'D' is switched on we should be OK."
Asked about the quick turnaround from Monday to Friday, Shaun added,
"This is like an Easter period for us, this doesn't bother me, this is a test for us, for me, the staff, the physios, everybody. I want the players to be mentally prepared and I want us to turn up on Friday to play."
Wigan go into the fixture on a 13 game unbeaten run in all competitons, top of the table and three points clear of second placed Warrington. The Bulls are in 9th level on points with Hull KR in 8th who are currently in the last play-off spot.
