Chris Hankinson could make his Wigan debut in the club’s huge top of the table showdown with St Helens.
The centre joined the Warriors on a deal until the end of the season on Tuesday and has been thrown straight into the squad for the derby.
His arrival comes as a boost to Wigan, who are without Oliver Gildart who picked up a thumb injury in defeat to Huddersfield last week.
Dan Sarginson and Joe Greenwood are in contention after missing out last week, but Sean O’Loughlin is out with a calf injury while George Williams is also unavailable.
Meanwhile, Saints will be without Zeb Taia for the contest after he was ruled out through injury.
The former Gold Coast back-row has been replaced by Jack Ashworth in Saints’ only change following last week’s win over Hull FC.
Wigan: Bateman, Clubb, Davies, Escare, Flower, Greenwood, Hamlin, Hankinson, Isa, Kibula, Leuluai, Marshall, Navarrete, Paisley, Powell, Sarginson, Tautai, Tomkins, Woods.
Saints: Lomax, Makinson, Morgan, Percival, Swift, Fages, Roby, Amor, Wilkin, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Douglas, Knowles, Thompson, Peyroux, Richardson, Grace, Lees, Ashworth, Barba.
