The Warriors go into the clash having picked up three points from tough fixtures against St.Helens, Bradford and Leeds, meanwhile Widnes are eager to get back on track following last Saturday's defeat at Warrington. Wigan Coach Stuart Raper said about the game,
"They have had quite an erratic year, they started off poor, they then got three games straight ,but they were quite poor against Warrington, I think Neil Kelly was fuming about their performance and they obviously will be trying to put a few things right for the visit of us. It will be another tough game, you never get anything different in Super League, it will be another physical game, we have played three physical games recently and we have done alright."
