Wakefield coach Chris Chester keeps the same team for the third week in a row as Trinity seek to make it three successive wins for the first time for almost 12 months.

Widnes Vikings hope to have prop Gil Dudson and winger Corey Thompson back from injury while skipper Joe Mellor and another front rower, Alex Gerrard, are poised to make their first appearances of the season and coach Denis Betts has called up 18-year-old centre Keanan Brand in place of the injured Stefan Marsh.
