Agar: Wolves have a long way to go

Warrington first team coach Richard Agar believes the team need to improve their performances if they’re to force their way towards the top of the table.

The Wolves came from behind against Wakefield to extend their unbeaten run to five games last Saturday, but Agar insists the players still have a long way to go before they reach the levels expected of them.

“We know at the moment this type of form in football isn’t going to take us to the top four, but I do think we’ve shown a grit and resilience to dig some results out.

“Ball control, cutting out the silly errors, getting a bit more fluency and a little more ball, I think we’ve found our way and the route down the field a lot easier the last three or four weeks.

“We’ve got a little bit more direct and we’ve found our power game again, but we’ve still got to cut out some of the errors.

“There’s a long way to go and we’ve got a lot of football in front of us. We know we’re not hitting our straps, but there’s certainly a little bit of momentum.

Warrington visit Hull on Friday with the hosts aiming for their third win in a row.

Lee Radford’s team bounced back from two disappointing home performances to defeat Leigh and Castleford and Agar acknowledged it will be a difficult test for the Wolves’ squad.

“I don’t think there’s a team in the competition this year that doesn’t have a week or two where things don’t quite work out,” added Agar.

“We’re probably an exception with the way we started the year, but over the last month you’ve seen the good and the bad of Hull.

“They’ve conceded a lot of points over those two weeks, but against Castleford who are scoring a shed load of points at the moment they defended incredibly well.

“I think the X-factor they’ve got in there is Albert Kelly who’s certainly giving them a different dimension to their attack.

“We know it’s a tough 80-minute assignment for us.”
