Warrington coach Tony Smith turned his attention to the Huddersfield postponement controversy after watching his team beaten 38-12 at home by Salford.
A second successive defeat on the weekend for the Wolves means that they face the Giants next week only two points ahead of their opponents.
They could even start that game outside the top eight, depending on the result of Catalans against Hull on Monday night.
Huddersfield’s scheduled game against St Helens on Bank Holiday Monday was postponed due to Huddersfield Town football club’s involvement in the Championship play-off final.
With both the Giants and Saints out of the Challenge Cup, they have used that weekend to hold the game.
Smith said: It’s ridiculous to give an unfair advantage to some teams. It’s like being penalised for doing well in the Challenge Cup.
“I’m furious for different reasons as Huddersfield could be in danger of breathing down our necks.
“We’ve played a couple of tough games and copped a battering while they’ve had their feet up.”
