Wakefield Trinity Wildcats head coach Richard Agar has made just one forced change to his 19-man squad to face Widnes Vikings at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).

Forward Chris Annakin has returned to replace Kyle Wood, who moved to Huddersfield Giants on loan last week ahead of a permanent switch next season.

Skipper Danny Kirmond will be available after being given the all-clear on a finger injury last week, while prop Justin Poore is also included after receiving just a caution from the Rugby Football League for his ‘tipping tackle’ offence against Hull FC last time out.

Wildcats will wear a special one-off shirt to raise awareness for Heart Research UK against the Vikings.

The shirts will also be auctioned off after the match on eBay and £1 from each match ticket will also go to the charity.

Tickets bought in advance are priced at £11 for adults and £6 concessions but will go up by £2 on matchday.

Wildcats’ 19-squad: Mathers, Fox, Collis, L Smith, Cockayne, Sykes, T Smith, Poore, Aiton, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Annakin, Amor, Wilkes, Mariano, Lyne, Wildie.

Vikings’ 19-man squad: Ah Van, Allen, K Brown, Cahill, Clarke, Craven, Gerrard, Gore, Hanbury, Hock, Isa, Joseph, Kavanagh, Leuluai, Marsh, O’Carroll, Owens, Phelps, Winterstein.
