Warrington Wolves vs Hull FC: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

Both Warrington and Hull will be desperate for a win after coming off second best in their last two games, and it should make for a fiery clash at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Daryl Powell’s Wolves currently sit in a lowly ninth, but with plenty of games left and a strong squad, the play-offs are not beyond possibility. However, their form has to start improving, having not won now for five matches.

Hull FC find themselves in a better position, already sitting in fifth, but the play-off race will be a tight one, so a win against a side in the bottom four shouldn’t be too much to ask. But what has made their season so turbulent has been how unpredictable they are, so this game could go either way.

Kick-off time and TV channel: The game will kick off at 8pm. It will be shown live on Sky Sports Arena from 7.30pm.

Predicted line-ups

Warrington Wolves: There are just two changes to Warrington’s squad, as the released Billy Magoulias is absent as well as mid-season signing Kyle Amor. Peter Mata’utia comes back after suspension alongside potential debutant James Harrison. Here is how we predict they will line-up:

Hull FC: Four changes are made to Brett Hodgson’s squad, with Carlos Tuimavave picking up a devastating Achilles injury against Catalans.
