St Helens coach Justin Holbrook believes Warrington will be gunning for revenge when the two sides meet at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday (Warrington 6/5, draw 18/1, St Helens 8/11 – Match Betting).

Saints claimed a 38-12 win over the Wire when they last met in April.

Holbrook’s men hold a six-point lead over second placed Warrington at the top of the Betfred Super League and a win would see them close in on the League Leaders’ Shield, but the coach expects a stern test on Friday evening.

“Warrington are a quality side right across the park, ” he told the BBC.

“The fact we did beat them earlier in the year will be an incentive for them to come out harder.

“We’re well aware of that and we’ll look forward to it on Friday.”

Warrington have named Luther Burrell in their squad and the centre could make his debut after swapping codes and joining from Northampton Saints in May.

Saints are without Zeb Taia for six weeks with a shoulder injury so Joseph Paulo comes into the squad, while Morgan Knowles replaces Mark Percival.

Saints have 11 wins in their last 12 games but lost their last away game as they slipped to a shock defeat at struggling London Broncos.

Warrington go into the game seeking a third straight home win after victories over Catalans Dragons and Wakefield Trinity.

St Helens are 5/6 to win with a -1.5 handicap and Saints star Tommy Makinson is 10/1 to score the first try.
