Wildcats academy side are in action on Saturday and they are set to play just their second home game of the campaign as they host Warrington Wolves, kick-off 2pm.

Academy forward Ben Shulver will be aiming to get back to winning ways this weekend.

The under 19s have so far played nine games with only one being at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium, a 18-16 defeat to Hull KR. Stuart Dickens’ men sit in 8th position in the league table after three wins and a draw so far in 2013.

Saturday’s home game will be something of a rarity so far this year after a series of home fixtures were switched to help protect the Rapid Solicitors Stadium pitch due to the inclement weather.

Corbyn Kilday is the captain of the academy side and they will be looking to rediscover their form against the Wolves after losing their last three games. Earlier in the season the Wildcats chalked up an unbeaten run of four which included wins away at London, Featherstone and Sheffield.

Entry for the game is free for all Wildcats Gold Members while it is just £3 adults and £1 concessions for non-members.

Elsewhere, a number of Wakefield first team players are expected to be involved in the Kingstone Press Championship this evening as partner club Doncaster take on Featherstone at the Keepmoat Stadium, kick-off7.30pm.

Dual-registration players Danny Cowling, Kyle Trout and Matty Wildie are in contention to play against Rovers after the Dons 52-22 victory over South Wales Scorpions last weekend in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup.

Doncaster currently sit in 13th position in the Championship while Featherstone are 4th.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
