Wakefield Wildcats man Kyle Wood has told Wildcats TV they will need to improve on their showing against Salford when they face St. Helens on Friday night.

Kyle Wood spoke to Wildcats TV following the draw with Salford.

Trinity drew 23-23 with the City Reds at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Sunday on the back of two close defeats to Huddersfield and Catalan. Paul Sykes stepped up with a 78th minute drop goal to ensure Richard Agar’s men earned at least one Super League point.

Attention has already turned to the visit to Langtree Park in four days time and Wood, who started on the interchange bench yesterday says they have to move on.

“It was difficult to get into, I can’t really explain what went wrong. We have next week and we have to build into it and really come together as a team and we need to improve on that for Saints next week.

“Last couple of weeks we’ve just come short and really defended quite well and we’ve really come together and trying really hard. We tried hard but its just the errors, it costs you in Super League.

“I don’t think they’ve won at home this year but it will be a really tough game. They will be wanting to get that win and make their own ground a fortress but we’ve got to go in with some confidence and build on what we’ve showed and hopefully we will go in firing.”

The number 14 went on to explain the frustrations in the tie.

“Our completion rate wasn’t as high as we wanted. We tried our best in last 30-40 minutes but we just didn’t get our completions and we probably lost a little bit of shape.

“We didn’t capitalize (on Salford’s mistakes), we didn’t complete our sets and we didn’t put them under enough pressure.”

You can watch the full interview with Wood on Wildcats TV where he also discusses the timing of the drop goal amongst further post match reaction.
