Wakefield boss Chris Chester breathed a sigh of relief after his team eventually secured two points at Leigh on Saturday.
Trinity raced into a 20 point lead, but the Centurions fought back to edge ahead 26-22 by the 50 minute mark before the visitors rallied to seal a 40-26 victory.
Chester said: “It was a bizarre game – we controlled the ball really well and for about 10-15 minutes I don’t think Leigh touched the ball.
“We deserved the two points, but we allowed Leigh back into the game with some poor discipline. Leigh are a good side and we knew they were going to challenge us.
“We are pleased to get a win because this is a tough place to come and the crowd got behind them. It was a game where we had to grind out the win as we suffered a few injuries.
“When we get field position we will score points because we are a good attacking side. We were more disciplined in the second half and came up with some good options.”
