Wakefield winger Mason Caton-Brown believes his team can take a lot of confidence from grinding out the win at Saints.
Trinity came away from the Totally Wicked Stadium with the two points after a late penalty try from Jacob Miller.
“It will build up a lot of confidence for us and we know we can do it now,” Caton-Brown told Love Rugby League.
“It’s a new team with new players so it’s a good position to be in now.”
Caton-Brown admitted it made winning all the more special to score a try on his debut.
The 23-year-old was handed his first start after Ben Jones-Bishop suffered a broken nose during the game against Huddersfield last week.
“It was good to get the win and I thought it was a good debut,” he added.
“The try was the cherry on top.”
After failing to capitalize on taking the lead in both of their previous two matches, Caton-Brown explained it was great to do it for the first time at Saints.
“We’ve been in winning positions but not been able to grind out and hold on until the end,” he said.
“It’s good to do that here and hopefully we’ll learn from this and push on for the rest of the season.”
The way Wakefield dominated Saints at home for the large majority of the first half will have a massive effect going forward, according to Caton-Brown.
“It’s a tough place to come and Saints are a strong team so it was a good confidence builder for us to come here and be in control of that first half,” he said.
“I think we slacked off towards the end of the half and the first bit of the second half but we held on and grinded out the win.”
