Wigan will be fired up, admits Powell

Castleford Tigers coach Daryl Powell believes that Wigan will be ‘ramped up’ for tonight’s game at the DW Stadium and out for revenge.

Castleford thumped Wigan at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle earlier in the year, and with Wigan in exceptional form at home, Powell is fully aware that his team will have to be on top form for the contest.

Castleford head to Wigan in decent form, but the Warriors are aiming to cement their position in the top four with another home victory.

“Wigan are playing well and they’ll be pretty ramped up after the number we did on them at the start of the year,” said Powell.

“You know what Shaun Wane’s like, they will certainly be highly motivated to come after us and we’ve got to rise to the challenge.

“It’s always a tough place to go, but we feel confident we can go and challenge them.
