Chester: We’ll treat Rams with respect

Wakefield head coach Chris Chester says his team will treat Dewsbury with respect when the two teams go head-to-head in the sixth round of the Challenge Cup on Friday.

Trinity have won their last two Super League games, while the Rams are struggling near the bottom of the Championship. but Chester has warned his players to approach the game in a professional manner.

“We’ve been going okay – we’ve had some really positive wins, but we’ve got a tricky cup tie on Friday,” said Chester.

“It’s a small pitch, but we’re going to give them the respect they deserve. We’re going with a pretty strong side, although we’ll give a few of the guys that’ve played some big minutes over the last few weeks a break.

“We’ve seen a lot of Dewsbury this year with the likes of Max Jowitt and Anthony Walker going out on dual-reg there.

“We’ve got to be careful – there’s been upsets already with Huddersfield getting turned over by Swinton, so we’re just looking for a professional performance from the boys this week.

“Everyone expects us to win and that’s what makes them a very dangerous side. We’ve just got to forget about all that kind of stuff and focus on the things that we’ve got to do well. I’m confident if we do those things we’ll come away with a real positive result.

“We had a great run last year and there’s no reason why we can’t do that again this year.”
