Chester: We definitely got out of jail

Chris Chester believes Wakefield were lucky to extend their winning run after coming from behind to defeat Huddersfield on Friday.

Ben Jones-Bishop (above) bagged his second try of the game late on to tie the scores at 26-26, before half-back Sam Williams kicked the conversion to seal the points.

Chester said: “It was pretty ugly – we definitely got out of jail.

“We’ve won five on the bounce and the law of averages says you’re going to have a bad performance in one of them.

“Huddersfield deserved something out of that game. They were a lot better than us in a lot of areas. They outplayed us in that first thirty minutes and again in the second half.

“We really struggled in the ruck, we were very sloppy. They were better in the wrestle and left a lot of our guys on the floor. There were a few choice words at half-time and they responded well.

“We showed some real good character to come back and it was a special play from Sammy to put Bish over and then kick the goal.

“I can’t ask for more, to come back from two scores down, it was a real gritty performance but we need to be quite a lot better in a lot of areas to get something out of the game (at Wigan) on Monday.

“A win’s a win and we’ll take it – it consolidates our place in the top six.”
