There are no major injury concerns ahead of the Gareth Ellis testimonial against Hull FC on Sunday.

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats Head Coach, James Webster has stated that a few of the players who picked up injuries in the Featherstone Rovers friendly are expected to be fit for Sunday.

Webster said, "Chris Riley will train this week, we are expecting him to be fit to play against Hull, Nick Scruton has also trained, he hasn't had any contact yet but we are expecting him to be fit also for Hull."

"We are not sure on Matty Ashurst yet, he has to go back to the specialist this week and we will see what happens with him."

"They were all able to train when we were away at the training camp, Ian Kirke did not come with us as he was still in rehab."

Webster has also expressed his delight with how well his new signings have performed during pre season, "I have been impressed with our new signings; Craig Hall, Jacob Miller and I thought Matty Ashurst was outstanding until he picked up that little bit of a knock as well as Lopini Paea."

"We are happy that we are improving, we understand that we have got that little bit to go still but we are moving in the right direction."

"Tom Johnstone has done a good job in pre season; he's pushing for a first team start. It's vital for a club like Wakefield bringing through some young people, Tom as well as Max, Harry Swan, Brad Moules are coming through are vital for the sustainability of the club."
