St Helens will look to continue their strong league form against bottom of the table Wakefield Trinity as they travel to West Yorkshire on Friday night.

The Saints have the chance to extend their lead at the top of the table to two points, albeit possibly temporarily, as fellow title challengers Warrington Wolves and Wigan Warriors clash in the late kick off.

The form going into the game couldn’t be more different between the two sides, with Trinity winless since the season restarted in August whereas visitors St Helens have emerged victorious in all of their encounters post lockdown thus far.

The away side will be feeling particularly confident coming into this one, after a 42- 0 thrashing against fierce rivals Wigan Warriors last weekend. Trinity on the other hand are on an eight match losing streak, and now have to face the Saints in successive game weeks due to fixture changes.

Team News

To make matters worse for the hosts, they have just 17 players available in their matchday squad having been ravaged by the Coronavirus.

On a more positive note Wakefield Trinity welcome back a number of players from injury, with Eddie Battye, Ryan Hampshire, Joe Batchelor and Jack Croft all available for selection.

St Helens also have a number of first team regulars missing from their matchday squad, with Jack Ashworth, Mark Percival and Luke Walsh all out injured.

Better news for Saints is the return of Tommy Makinson, who is available once more after serving his five game ban.

Where can I watch it?

The game is being shown on Sky Sports Arena, with a 5:30pm kick off time.
