Tom Johnstone and Kyle Trout have been included in the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 19-man squad ahead of the Super League trip to Wigan Warriors on Friday.

They replace Tim Smith and Danny Kirmond, who are the latest players to be forced out with injuries after picking up knocks in the loss to Huddersfield Giants last Sunday.

Trinity head coach James Webster said: “Obviously we have got a few people out from our 19-man squad from last week.

“Danny Kirmond and Tim Smith will not be playing. Tim has a knee injury and will need to go see a specialist and Danny Kirmond has been carrying various injuries for a long period of time, and he is just not fit enough to play.

“It gives us a good opportunity to give a run out to some of the younger players again. We go to Wigan with a mindset that we are still looking at getting a result.”

The 19 man squad is: Joe Arundel, Dean Collis, Jordan Crowther, George Griffin, Craig Hall, Jordan Hand, Tom Johnstone, Ali Lauitiiti, Paul McShane, Jacob Miller, Richard Owen, Chris Riley, Matt Ryan, Jarrod Sammut, Nick Scruton, Mickael Simon, Daniel Smith, Kyle Trout, Danny Washbrook.
