It had been announced it would take place on Friday, September 24 but the club confirmed tonight it will now be played 24 hours earlier, on Thursday September 23 (7.45pm kick-off).

The Warriors said: "After discussions with Super League and the DW Stadium, the game has now been moved a day earlier than originally announced."

Fourth-placed Wigan will face the team finishing in fifth - either Hull KR or Leeds - with the winners getting a spot in the following week's semi-finals, against either Catalans or St Helens.
