MATTY Ashton will miss Warrington Wolves' Challenge Cup quarter final against Catalans Dragons.

The full-back suffered an ankle injury during Saturday's Super League win over Hull KR and was forced off despite initially trying to play on.

Head coach Steve Price confirmed the 22-year-old is having a scan on the injury today and that the full extent of the injury will be known in the next 24 hours.

"He’s going for a scan tonight, so we should know more in the next 24 hours but he’s definitely out for this week," he said.

"It was unfortunate that a Bank Holiday fell this week so we’re having to wait but we’ll know more soon.

"He copped a serious one last year with his hamstring and this game can be quite cruel at times.

"He made that half-break on Saturday and just came down on his ankle.

"It was an unfortunate thing to happen but hopefully we get some good news tonight after the scan.

"He’s worked extremely hard to get into this position so fingers crossed."

Prop Robbie Mulhern missed Saturday's game with a lower leg injury but Price confirmed he would be in the 21-man squad for the game at Emerald Headingley.

The Wire head coach also said that the rest of the squad was fit and available for selection, with winger Tom Lineham back in contention after completing a three-match suspension.

"There’s some really good pressure being applied by all the team at the moment," Price said.

"We've got a healthy squad at the moment and there’s some real quality players missing out on our 17 at the moment which is unfortunate for them, but they are putting real pressure on the guys in it.

"Rob Mulhern will be in the 21. He could have played at a pinch but I thought Sitaleki did a really good job filling his rotation at the weekend."
