Wigan head coach Ian Millward is looking to build on Wigan's two recent victories over the Leigh Centurions and the Warrington Wolves last Saturday at the JJB Stadium.
Millward believes his side showed great character to come from being behind at half time in both games showing that they are prepared to work hard for each other.
The former St. Helens boss is however very aware of the task in hand and knows what his side are up against playing a side who are yet to lose on their own soil this season.
"We've come off the back of a very good win and we're playing against a team that's undefeated at home and I know they have know weaknesses because I recruited them all."
Comparing his side to when they last played St. Helens Millward said, "If you said we would have improved 50% then we'll get beat thirty something to nil, but if we play as well as we did on Saturday then we'll do well on Friday."
"Obviously our confidence wasn't very good when we went there and we had a lot of youger guys and it was very daunting for them but I think we're in alot better position to handle that this time.
But the Warrington game has taken it's toll on wigan with no full on training taking place again today, however Millward is hoping his team will be revialised for Friday's game.
"The downside is that we sustained alot of injuries out of Saturday's game it was really a bruising tough encouter and I'm sure Warrington are feeiling it too. I've just got my fingers cross that everyone will come through and I can get the best team out on field.
