AGAR NAMES UNCHANGED SQUAD
Wakefield head coach Richard Agar has named an unchanged 19-man squad for the crucial trip to Leigh Sports Village to face Salford City Reds.
The squad includes Dean Collis who has recovered from a bang to the head in the 22-18 victory over Widnes with Kyle Trout and Matt James added to the 17 that featured against the Vikings.
The Wildcats named an unchanged team last Sunday and it would be no surprise to see an identical team line up against Phil Vievers’ men to show the consistency that has been applied on the field by the players with six straight wins.
Peter Fox, Danny Washbrook and Kyle Wood are set to be included which will make them 2012 Super League ever presents for Trinity.
Speaking at Wednesday’s press conference Agar said the team are fully prepared for Saturday evening.
“We are ready for it,” said Agar.
“Some of the stuff that happened in last week’s game certainly came at a good time for us. It has enabled us to get away with a below par performance and give our self an opportunity to have a good look at it and work on some things and realise why they happened and hopefully put them right this week.
“I am delighted with the turnaround the boys have shown in training, their attitudes have been great this week and we just had a really sharp and slick session at the right intensity so we are happy that by the time we get our team run out of the way on Friday we’ll be ready to go.”
The 19-man squad in full is:
1. Richard Mathers
2. Peter Fox
3. Dean Collis
5. Ben Cockayne
7. Kyle Wood
8. Oliver Wilkes
9. Andy Ellis
