Smith: The fans’ views are understandable

Warrington boss Tony Smith has urged his players to ignore the rumours about his future when they visit Huddersfield on Sunday.

After Monday’s defeat against Salford some fans called for Smith to quit, while a post announcing his departure on Wolves’ official Facebook page was quickly deleted with the club claiming it had been hacked.

“We have got to get rid of the emotion that was built up over the weekend and we certainly need to do better,” he told the Warrington Guardian.

“We missed way too many one-on-one tackles and that’s not like us. We’ve been putting big focus on our defence and fixing that up.

“The fans’ views are understandable and I am as frustrated as they are.

“There’s not much we can do about that apart from going out there and performing well on Sunday.”

Warrington will be without Rhys Evans who will miss the the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.

Harvey Livett is also set to miss the remainder of 2017, while Toby King is not expected to return for another six weeks.

Kurt Gidley is out of the Huddersfield clash with a calf injury and Daryl Clark is banned for the game after pleading guilty to a Grade B punching charge.
