Warrington have cemented their place at the top of Super League and continued their unbeaten run with an impressive 18-point win over Widnes.
It was an enthralling local derby played in front of a sellout crowd at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in great conditions.
In the first half of a cagey match, Widnes took a 10-0 lead thanks to tries to Tom Gilmore and Rhys Hanbury.
But there was little between the two teams and Warrington hit back through Chris Sandow.
In the second half Warrington took control, Gidley diving over on 51 minutes to give them the lead.
Their outstanding defence kept the Vikings out again and again, with the visitors enjoying four repeat sets on thehome team’s line.
The only negative for Warrington was an injury to Matty Russell, who was forced from the field with a rolled ankle.
