GARETH Widdop and Mike Cooper are both missing from the Warrington Wolves squad to face Swinton Lions in the Challenge Cup.

Head coach Steve Price has named a strong squad for the third-round clash but half-back Widdop - man of the match in the Super League win over Leigh Centurions last week - and prop Cooper are not involved.

It means Stefan Ratchford looks set to partner Blake Austin in the halves, with Matty Ashton moving into full back.

Forwards Matt Davis and Sitaleki Akauola are both set for their first appearances of the season.
