Wakefield coach Richard Agar says their play-off match against Leeds can’t come quick enough, as they look to build on the momentum generated by their seven match winning streak.
The Wildcats snuck in to the play-offs, ahead of both Bradford and Hull KR, to set up a tie at Headingley, where they will be looking to repeat their 38-18 home win over the Rhinos during their run.
After winning just six of their first 20 games, Wakefield have been the form team in the final third of the season.
Agar said: “We’re coming in to the play-offs as the eighth best team, so everyone elses form has been better over the season, but in the second half of the year, our form has been up there with the top two or three teams.
“It’s fair to say we are a team that has got a lot of momentum, and the boys are looking forward to it, and we’re confident in our own ability.”
On their previous trip to Headingley this season, the Wildcats scored 40 points in a four point defeat, and they have nothing to fear when taking on the Super League champions.
Agar added: “We can take something from it. The lesson out of that is that you’ve got to be really disciplined within your game when you play Leeds, you want to turn the ball over on your own terms and in the right areas.
“We can take plenty from those two games, and from our own form, to suggest that if we get it right, there’s a game on.
“We’ve thoroughly earned our right to be in that eight.”
