O’Loughlin, Powell and Farrell all out for Wigan

Wigan Warriors injuries

Wigan will be without three key players for this Thursday’s Battle of the Borough against Leigh Centruions.

Second-rower Liam Farrell is suspended for the match after he submitted an early guilty plea for using foul and abusive language against Hull FC.

In what is becoming a never-ending injury list for Shaun Wane, captain Sean O’Loughlin (hamstring) and Sam Powell (concussion) will also be absent for the game at the Leigh Sports Village.

There is at least some positive news for the cherry and whites with centre Oliver Gildart set to make his long-awaited return from a back injury he suffered against Leeds 10 weeks ago.

The champions are without a win in six Super League matches and risk been cut adrift from the top four unless they can get back to winning ways shortly.

Wigan 19-man squad to face Leigh: 

Joe Burgess, Tom Davies, Gabe Fell, Callum Field, Liam Forsyth, Josh Ganson, Oliver Gildart, Willie Isa, Thomas Leuluai, Liam Marshall, Michael Mcilorum, Romain Navarrete, Frank-Paul Nuuausala, Ryan Sutton, Taulima Tautai, Lewis Tierney, Joel Tomkins, Jack Wells & George Williams.
