Wakefield coach Richard Agar says that their narrow defeat against Warrington shows that they are heading in the right direction, despite only winning once so far this season.
The Wildcats are winless since their opening day win at basement boys Widnes, but pushed last season\’s league leaders all the way, before going down 32-20 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Agar was even able to point to a controversial decision that cost Wakefield an unlikely win, following recent good showings against Huddersfield and Hull.
He told the club\’s official website: \”The biggest disappointment for me is a try on the seventh tackle from Simon Grix.
\”We’ve had two already ruled out this season for forward passes and then we get a try on the seventh tackle, and it makes it a little bit of a bitter pill to swallow.
“I think the bigger picture for me is that whilst we may not have got the two points, and we might be people’s favourites to finish bottom or second bottom, but in the last few weeks we’ve gone toe-to-toe with some top four contenders and been in with a shout of winning every game.
“We’re definitely playing some good football and that’s no fluke, we’re heading in the right direction.\”
Wakefield currently lie in 11th place, although they are only kept off the bottom on points difference.
The bottom seven teams are currently separated by just four points, with the Wildcats, London, Castleford and Widnes all with just one win so far this season.
