We are close to where we want to be, says Wigan boss Adrian Lam

Wigan might have lost their last four games, but coach Adrian Lam is remaining positive as the Warriors look to turn their form around.

The Warriors lost their fourth game in a row on Thursday night as they fell to a 40-14 home defeat to rivals Warrington.

The Wolves raced into an 18-0 lead before scoring three tries in the final quarter to quash a potential Wigan comeback, with Warrington centre Jake Mamo grabbing a hat-trick.

Speaking after the game, Lam said: “I thought there was plenty of effort there and we are really, really close to where we want to be. Three moments against the run of play really hurt us.

“I thought we fought hard to get back within 10 points and we had momentum but we flattened out from that point on but I’m trying to stay on the positives.

“When you are playing teams who have confidence oozing you need to be clinical. But with some of the things we did, it just felt like everything was going against us. We have got to get better in those situations.

“I’m worried about the situation we are in but we doing our absolute best with players playing out of position.”

Wigan seek to return to winning ways on Sunday night when they travel to rivals St Helens.
