SAINTS will be without on-song loose forward James Bell for the Good Friday derby against Wigan,

The Scottish international has been handed a Grade B dangerous contact charge and given a one-match penalty notice following a challenge against Leeds last week.

He will therefore sit out the sold-out Derby at Totally Wicked Stadium and will be a huge loss.
