Huddersfield full-back Will Pryce will return to face an unchanged Wigan squad on Thursday, but the Giants are missing two key players through suspension.

Ian Watson’s side will be without half-back Theo Fages and hooker Danny Levi after they picked up one and two-match bans respectively. They are replaced by full-back Pryce and forward Jack Ashworth.

Jamaica international Ashton Golding comes in for his first appearance in Huddersfield’s 21-man squad this season.

Matt Peet has named an unchanged Wigan squad for this Thursday’s match.

Experienced centre Iain Thornley remains sidelined with injury. Australian full-back Bevan French returned to the club earlier this week. However, he has not been named as he gets himself up to speed.

Harry Smith, Joe Shorrocks, Abbas Miski and Brad O’Neill could feature for Wigan after not making the matchday 17 last week.

Wigan and Huddersfield have both made fine starts to the season. Peet has won his first two games in charge of the Warriors against Hull KR and Leeds.

The Giants have impressed in their two wins against Toulouse and Hull KR. St Helens, Salford and Warrington are the other teams in Super League who have made a winning start.

Wigan: Bibby, Hardaker, Marshall, Cust, Leuluai, Singleton, Powell, Mago, Isa, Farrell, Bateman, Smithies, Ellis, Smith, Partington, Byrne, Pearce-Paul, Shorrocks, Field, Miski, O’Neill.

Huddersfield: Pryce, McGillvary, Leutele, Golding, Lolohea, Hill, Lawrence, Jones, McQueen, Yates, English, Greenwood, Trout, Ikahihifo, O’Brien, Wilson, Cudjoe, L Senior, Russell, I Senior, Ashworth.

The Super League clash takes place at the DW Stadium on Thursday, 8pm kick-0ff.
