Warrington could hand a debut to new signing Mitchell Dodds tonight as they look to maintain their unbeaten start to the season with a win over Salford at the AJ Bell Stadium.
The former Brisbane prop has missed the start of the season with a wrist injury and replaces Daryl Clark in the 19-man squad who picked up a calf tear in the win over Wakefield last week.
Stefan Ratchford is also in line to make his first appearance of the season and will replace Kurt Gidley at stand-off as the Australian is still recovering from concussion suffered in the win against the Wildcats.
Salford make one change from the team which narrowly lost to Wigan last weekend as Adam Walne replaces the injured Olsi Krasniqi.
Gareth O’Brien is set to face his former side as the Red Devils seek to maintain their 100% home record this season following impressive wins over St Helens and Widnes at the AJ Bell Stadium.
Ian Watson’s side have a poor record against the Wolves in recent times however having lost the last seven encounters between the sides.
Warrington won the corresponding fixture 34-18 last season but will be wary of the threat the rejuvenated Red Devils pose following their strong performances at the start of this campaign.
Warrington Wolves 19-man squad: Ryan Atkins, Jordan Cox, Ben Currie, Mitchell Dodds, Brad Dwyer, Rhys Evans, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, Benjamin Jullien, George King, Tom Lineham, Kevin Penny, Joe Philbin, Stefan Ratchford, Matty Russell, Chris Sandow, Ashton Sims, Joe Westerman, Gary Wheeler.
Salford Red Devils 19-man squad: Justin Carney, Michael Dobson, Niall Evalds, Mark Flanagan, George Griffin, Josh Griffin, Greg Johnson, Josh Jones, Craig Kopczak, Ryan Lannon, Tommy Lee, Rob Lui, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Gareth O’Brien, Matt Sarsfield, Junior Sa’u, Logan Tomkins, Adam Walne, Jordan Walne.
