Byline: IAN LAYBOURN Rugby League reporter

WARRINGTON coach Steve Price insists his players will stay humble as they chase a seventh successive Super League win when Leeds visit the Halliwell Jones Stadium tonight.

Although they went out of the Challenge Cup, the Wolves have not looked back in the league since slipping up at home to Huddersfield in May but Price says there will be no complacency.

"There's a real good vibe around the club," he said. "The boys are playing some really good football of late. There's a good rhythm and good momentum, hopefully it continues.

"It's important we keep our feet on the ground and remain humble."

" Leeds, who on Saturday dismissed speculation over the future of coach Richard Agar, went a month without a game following a Covid-19 outbreak in the camp but they made it three wins in a row at the expense of Leigh on Thursday despite being without a host ofplayers.

"They'll get a few more players back this week. It's a challenge we're really excited for. We're back at the Halliwell Jones and hopefully our fans will cheer us to another victory."

Leeds lost forward King Vuniyayawa with a head injury in the win over Leigh but centre Konrad Hurrell and full-back Ash Handley return from injury and back-row forwards Alex Mellor and Bodene Thompson have completed their one-match bans.

Warrington are still without Gareth Widdop so the versatile Stefan Ratchford continues at halfback and in-form centre Toby King is back from a two-match lay-off with a knee injury.

"Toby is a great asset to our team," said Price. "His decision-making on that left edge has been class and his carries out of yardage better than anyone.

"I thought he was playing some really good football before his injury but he had a few niggles so it's come at a good time to
