The game ended 32-24 in Warrington’s favour, with a late Ben Currie try sealing the win for the home side.
“It was pretty frantic, as you can obviously see from the scoreline,” Ratchford told Super League TV.
“It wasn’t great for us, it was real scratchy.
“In the first couple of games here we set a platform for ourselves and in the World Club, and last week and today’s game have not been great.
“We’re pretty disappointed to concede 24 points at home. We’re a bit frustrated, but obviously glad to get the two points.”
Ratchford, who returned to action at full-back after a spell out injured, felt that the the Wolves’ defence required some work before their next game, at home to Leeds on Friday.
“The two tries we conceded in the first half were really poor tries to concede,” he said.
“Offensively we had a few patches where we were pretty good, but then other parts where we were miles away from what we set out to do.”
