Wakefield coach Chris Chester insists that his team are in confident mood ahead of Friday’s clash with Wigan at the DW Stadium.
Although the team are affected by injuries to the likes of Nick Scruton and Danny Kirmond, Chester feels that his team are not being given enough credit by the media for the way they they are playing.
“I don’t think my boys are getting the credit they deserve,” he told reporters.
“We’re going to have do it the tough way, but I’m looking for a positive response from last week’s performance.
“We’re going there with a plan to win the game.
“We’ll go there full of confidence and have a real crack at Wigan. There’s no better test for my boys against the best team in the competition.
“There’ll be no excuses. We’ll be very disappointed if we don’t manage to come away with a victory.”
Chester anticipates a very physical test from the Warriors on Friday evening.
“They’re a very physical side,” he said.
“Wigan have been very dominant in these last three or four weeks.
“In terms of consistency, they’ve been the best team in the competition.”
