Wigan boss Shaun Wane blasted his players after their below-par performance against Warrington on Thursday.
The Warriors failed to celebrate Sean O’Loughlin’s 400th appearance with a victory as Wire recorded a 16-10 success to keep their faint top eight hopes alive.
“It was a massive game, the 400th for Lockers, and we had loads of reasons to win the game but I didn’t see the desperation,” said Wane.
“We owed him a victory and we didn’t get it. That’s why I feel bad and really angry. I’m really disappointed and they know that.
“One hundred percent Warrington deserved to win. They had too much enthusiasm for us which is something you can’t practice.
“They had better line speed and ran harder. No flashy plays beat us.
“But we’ll be in very early tomorrow and you’ll see a different attitude against Leeds next week. We’ll finish the season strong, no question about that.”
