Ryan Atkins is set to make his second Wakefield debut on Friday in a relegation fight against London.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester has made just one change to his side that lost at Warrington last week. Atkins replaces prop Anthony England [hamstring].

Danny Ward has named the same 19-man squad that won at Hull KR last time out. Will Lovell and Olsi Krasniqi could return after missing out on the matchday squad at the KCOM Craven Park.

The televised Super League match takes place at the Mobile Rocket Stadium on Friday night, 7:45pm kick-off.

Drew’s dabble: London winger Rhys Williams is 14/1 to score the game’s opening try.

Wakefield 19-man squad: Joe Arundel, Ryan Atkins, Danny Brough, Jordan Crowther, Morgan Escare, Chris Green, Titus Gwaze, Ryan Hampshire, Ben Jones-Bishop, Lee Kershaw, George King, Danny Kirmond, Craig Kopczak, Reece Lyne, Jacob Miller, Tyler Randell, Adam Tangata, Kelepi Tanginoa, Kyle Wood.

London 19-man squad: Jordan Abdull, Guy Armitage, Eddie Battye, Rob Butler, James Cunningham, Kieran Dixon, Matty Fozard, Matt Gee, Daniel Hindmarsh, Elliot Kear, Olsi Krasniqi, Brock Lamb, Will Lovell, Nathan Mason, Ryan Morgan, Jay Pitts, Alex Walker, Rhys Williams, Luke Yates.

Wakefield are priced at 4/9 to secure Super League status, while London’s odds are 2/1 to stun the world.
