Wane wants Wigan response
London Broncos have been warned to expect a backlash from Wigan Warriors in tomorrow's Stobart Super League clash at the DW Stadium.
The Broncos broke their duck at the sixth attempt last weekend but so did Widnes Vikings at the expense of Wigan, whose coach Shaun Wane is anticipating redemption from his players.
"We will fix what happened last week," Wane said. "I am looking for a response from my players.
"The team have trained really well. It was a real physical session on Wednesday and it showed to me the players want to get out there and prove what a good team they really are."
After resting four of his regulars against Widnes, Wane will field a virtual full-strength team against the Broncos, who will be unchanged from the team that beat Castleford Tigers.
London coach Rob Powell said: "That game has given the team some confidence and, following a good week's training, we are looking to back it up against Wigan."
Wane insisted he did not take the Vikings lightly and he says there will be no complacency against the Broncos, who lost 54-6 in the corresponding match last season.
"London have some talented players," Wane said. "Chris Bailey is a player I admire and they have quality people in the halves in Michael Witt and Craig Gower, who performed really well last week against Castleford.
"I saw them play recently against Salford City Reds and they weren't firing on all cylinders that day but last week they showed what they can do."
Warrington Wolves will also be aiming to bounce back from defeat when they host Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, who have lost four matches in a row since starting the season with a win at Widnes.
Wildcats coach Richard Agar is convinced his new-look side are making progress but he admits the Wolves could be smarting from the first loss of the season at Leeds Rhinos.
"It's a really tough game in front of us, particularly on the back of a defeat for them," Agar said.
"We know the size of the task in front of us but our aim is about us and us getting better.
"Despite not getting one or two results over the last few weeks we are most certainly heading in the right direction.
"We're still learning but we're making rapid progress. We're hoping it translates into some wins for us sooner rather than later but we're certainly not going to start panicking.
"We need to keep doing what we're doing but for slightly longer periods and learn about each other and how to win those games along the way."
Widnes will be aiming to build on their first win when they take on Hull FC at the KC Stadium.
Full-back Shaun Briscoe and centre Cameron Phelps will line up against their old club, along with new recruits Sione Kite and Gareth O'Brien, who caught the eye in the Vikings' 37-36 victory over Wigan.
"Widnes have brought some players in since the season started and they essentially had a new team playing last week," said Hull coach Peter Gentle.
"That team has won its only game and put 37 points on a Wigan side that still had a lot of quality across the park so there is no doubting their ability.
"If anything, the result last weekend probably did us a favour and none of our boys should be taking this game for granted. There are no easy wins in Super League. You have to earn every single point."
The Black and Whites are looking to make it three wins in a row but they are without England centre Kirk Yeaman through injury and prop Mark O'Meley through suspension.
Jordan Turner is set to make his first start of the season in place of Yeaman and Gentle has called up youngsters Josh Bowden, Liam Kent and Ben Crooks, who have yet to make their Super League debuts.
