Widnes Vikings v Wakefield Trinity
Wakefield have started to stutter recently although they have remained competitive and in truth they have faced a tough run of matches. The good news for their fans is that they are still in the hunt for the top 4, starting this round just 1 place and 1 point behind Hull FC in 4th and just 4 points behind Leeds in 2nd.
For a club, the size of Wakefield and having the salary cap spend they have available to them it is an incredible achievement just for them to be in the top 8 so no matter what happens the season will be a success but this is the sort of game they will need to in if they are to keep in that top 4 hunt.
Widnes have little to play for in terms of league position as they are baring a miracle to finish in the bottom 2 but they do need to find some confidence ahead of the Qualifiers especially after they demolition against Huddersfield last time out.
Widnes have won 2 of their last 5 matches but only 1 of their last 4 and they have lost both of their last 2 coming into this one.
Wakefield have now lost 3 of their last 4 matches but on the road, they have won 4 of their last 5.
Wakefield make 3 changes with Mikey Sio having joined Halifax during the week he misses out alongside Jordan Crowther and Reece Lyne.
Danny Kirmond, Max Jowitt and David Fifita come in although Fifita was a late call up for their loss against Castleford.
This is one of those matches that could easily go either way. Both have similar players on paper but the Trinity players have over performed this season with the Viking sunder performing.
Unfortunately for home fans we can see a similar thing in this one with Trin grinding out a narrow win.
Our Prediction: Wakefield Trinity by 8
