Chester targets top four finish

Wakefield boss Chris Chester could not hide his delight after his side secured victory over Widnes at Magic Weekend on Saturday.

Scott Grix and Ben Jones-Bishop topped the scoring with a pair of tries each as Trinity comfortably recorded a 34-12 success to leave the Vikings rooted to the foot of the table.

“I’m delighted – we came here to do a job and we got the two points,” said Chester.

“I thought we were pretty ruthless in the first half. We completed really well – about 89 per cent in the first half. It was a great effort.

“Widnes came back at us in the second half, but I thought we had done enough. We were pretty resilient, we scrambled really well, and the guys kept turning up for each other. I thought our whole pack was a real handful.

“We’ve flown under the radar but we’re not doing too bad. I don’t think we’ve quite hit our straps yet, I think there is a lot more in us. The guys are really believing in what we’re doing. You can see they enjoy each other’s company.

“We’re playing well and I still feel there’s another notch to us. We’ve put ourselves in a really good position to finish in the six and we want to push higher now.

“We’ve a very important month coming up. We’ve some tricky games coming up, but I’m confident if we can continue the way we are playing that we can finish in the top four.”
