Leigh Leopards welcome Wigan Warriors to the Leigh Sports Village on Thursday night in a fixture where they’re aiming to break their Super League record attendance.
The Leopards have only played twice at home this season but both times they’ve done so in front of a large audience and with pre-match entertainment.
The second of those games saw the Leopards stun Saints with a comeback win over the Club World Champions.
They now head into this game against Wigan off the back of an impressive win over Hull FC in which star winger Josh Charnley scored a hattrick.
It’s already been confirmed that Leigh will be without loanee Joe Shorrocks, Matt Peet confirming at the press conference that the two week loanee had returned to the DW.
Shorrocks has in fact been named in Matt Peet’s squad instead being reintroduced immediately.

Lam has named his squad and similar to Matt Peet he has only made one change, although whilst Peet adds Shorrocks to his squad, Lam has to replace him.
The man who has been elected to replace Joe Shorrocks is Nathan Wilde meaning that Lam will have a near full strength squad, as it remains relatively unchanged.
Last week was the first time Edwin Ipape started and that could be set to happen again whilst Josh Charnley will certainly be hoping for another hattrick.
