Wigan Warriors Coach Stuart Raper has revealed that Captain Andy Farrell, Second Rower Mick Cassidy and Forward Ricky Bibey could all be back for Friday's home game with Warrington Wolves at the JJB Stadium.
Farrell has been out since February with a knee problem while Cassidy has had a hand injury and Bibey injured his back against St.Helens.
Speaking after Saturday's win at Widnes ,Raper said,
"I think for the first time this year there are no fresh injuries to report, there are bumps and bruises.There could be a few players back for next week, Faz could be back, Mick Cassidy and Ricky Bibey could be available for selection."
With three points from two tough away games at Leeds and Widnes and the possible return of a number of key players it is hoped a large crowd will pack the JJB Stadium for the game. Raper added,
"After a really tough schedule and with the injury crisis easing we are looking to put on a good performance in front of the home fans."
Tickets for the game are now on sale, the hotline number is 0870 11 22 552 and Tesco Outreach School vouchers for the game can now be redeemed at the Ticket Office up until two hours before kick off.
