Wildcats assistant coach James Webster says the return of Paul Aiton from suspension will boost the Wildcats against Hull FC on Monday night.

Wildcats assistant coach James Webster says Paul Aiton's return from suspension will boost the Wildcats.

Wakefield’s number 9 missed the victory against London due to suspension but is set to return to the starting line-up for the trip to Humberside.

Webster also revealed that this is likely to be the only change to the team that convincingly defeated the Broncos 46-14 at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Sunday.

“We’re pretty much similar to last week, I couldn’t imagine anyone will be fit to play that wasn’t last week so it will be a pretty similar team.

“Paul Aiton will be available this week and he has been good for us, he’s probably been our most consistent player for a long period of time.

“I think he adds a little bit of steel to us in the middle and he is a really tough competitor which helps the makeup of our side because he can play a little bit of loose-forward if possible. So we’re looking forward to Paul coming back.”

Trinity travel to Hull in high spirits with two victories behind them, whereas their opponents have lost their last two, the latest of which was a 30-28 defeat to Castleford last Friday.

However the black and whites are formidable at home and have won their last three matches at the KC Stadium which makes Webster extremely wary of a backlash from the Airlie Birds.

“There home form is outstanding, if you look over the period of the last two or three years I think you could count on one hand how many game they have lost at home.

“Looking at their squad, I think other than Richard Horne they have a fully fit 25-man squad to pick from, obviously Danny Tickle will be back and I expect Tom Briscoe to play as well so I wouldn’t say it’s a great time to play them but it’s Super League and you have got to play everyone twice.

“While they’re a very good and quality side we back ourselves to go to any ground at the moment and play well. If we can put our best foot forward I think we have a chance.”
