Wigan coach Shaun Wane is preparing to pile more misery onto the Bradford Bulls with a win at the DW Stadium.
The Warriors face the Bradford club, which was put into administration on Tuesday.
But Wane has warned his side of the dangers the wounded Bulls present to his side’s league leadership hopes.
He said: “It is sad what is happening there, they may well have a siege mentality. I don’t know what the details are regarding Bradford, they are one of the best known Club’s in the competition and it is very sad.
“Mick Potter and his backroom staff have done a great job and they will turn up I’m sure full of enthusiasm and we need to make sure we are ready to get the two points.”
Despite Bradford’s financial and off field problems, Wane believes the Bulls are still a threat on the field but is still confident of a win.
He said: “I am expecting a very tough battle on Friday, I have watched their last five games, they are a quality team, they have some great players, some real quality runners so we need to be at our best. I have looked at their attack but if our ‘D’ is switched on we should be OK.”
Wigan host the Bulls on Friday night.
