Wigan head coach Shaun Wane was pleased to see his side come from behind and snatch a late victory after a slow start.
The Warriors ran out 18-12 winners against Hull FC at the KCOM Stadium.
“I thought we made hard work of it early on. They didn’t have to go out their hardest. The referee penalized us I don’t know how many times,” Wane told Sky Sports.
“We just couldn’t get a good ball, we had no field position so we couldn’t attack.
“It was disappointing to see the lack of discipline. Some poor calls from the referee which were penalties.
“There were certain things which needed to be fixed, the lads fixed it they played well.
“They have been hammered for weeks and weeks these players but in that group, in that dressing room we have loads of characters.
“There is loads and loads of belief even if nobody else has.
“Without sounding arrogant, Hull are a fantastic club and I love the job Lee Radford has done but I could sense 20 minutes to go we had a chance of getting this game.
“I am really proud. I know what these lads have had to deal with. They have been hammered by everyone.
“It’s a win against Hull in Super League in the Super 8s. I am very, very proud but we got beat by Widnes last week so still a bit of work to do.”
Wane also highlighted the importance of the match against the Warrington Wolves next week.
“It is a big game, a massive game. We will enjoy tonight, have a good week and hopefully rip into them next week.”
