Looking ahead to the contest Wigan Coach Stuart Raper said, "Leeds will be upset at their performance against Bradford, the Bulls played very well and you can't take anything away from them but it is another game for us, we are making steady progression and improving our play. We have been going on quietly doing our job and getting the wins and that is what we have to keep doing. We know the intensity against Leeds will be a lot different from the one against Halifax but that game has been good preparation for us, to get the confidence of scoring tries and the guys feel fresh and ready for Friday night."
