WEMBLEY may be on the horizon, but Steve Price insists Warrington Wolves are looking no further than the trip to Wigan Warriors tonight.

In what will be their final game before next week’s Challenge Cup Final, The Wire make the short trip to the DW Stadium to face Adrian Lam’s in-form Warriors side.

Defeat would be their seventh in nine Super League games and could see them surrender second spot.

With several first-team players set to return, Price says all of his side’s energy will be focused on their neighbours rather than the Wembley meeting with St Helens.

“If you look too far ahead, you’ll end up getting turned over. We have to think one week at a time,” he said.

“It’s important that we get back to winning ways and we have a tough game on Friday. We’re not looking any further ahead than that.

“A few guys got rested last week for particular reasons with there being a long turnaround the following week.

“Having said that, a number of players will come back into consideration.

“We’re challenging for two competitions and we need to get back on track.”

Price’s latest injury concern is over hooker Danny Walker, who has been ruled out of the game with an ankle injury sustained during last week’s 30-12 defeat to Saints.

Blake Austin (ankle), Josh Charnley (knee) and Jack Hughes (ruptured testicle) remain sidelined.

However, Price has brought back his big guns as Daryl Clark, Mike Cooper, Tom Lineham, Jason Clark, Toby King and Declan Patton all return.

Youngsters Riley Dean, Josh Thewlis, Pat Moran and Luis Johnson are the ones to miss out.

Even though Wolves have beaten Wigan three times already this season, a trip to the DW Stadium is as daunting a pre-Wembley trip as they could have hoped for.

Lam’s side have won eight of their nine games since losing to The Wire at Magic Weekend on May 25, with League Leaders’ Shield winners Saints the only side to beat them in that time.

“Wigan are playing really well,” Price said.

“They were scratchy earlier on – Adrian had different ideas about how the game is played to the previous gaffer.

“They all seem to be buying into the change and they’re playing some really good football.

“We’re going to have to be on high alert around their key players.

“We need to get back to that strong defensive attitude we displayed against Hull FC not too long ago.”
