Double try scorer Peter Fox is adamant the Wildcats will rediscover their form despite ‘going through a bit of adversity’.
Wakefield fell to a 41-34 home defeat to Warrington this afternoon in a close encounter where the hosts pushed Tony Smith’s men all the way.
After trailing 24-6 the Wildcats brought the score back to 24-22 which included two tries for winger Fox in a team performance full of courage and high quality attacking play.
Trinity have only got three Super League points from their last eight games while not playing particularly poorly in a number of those games. Fox says the spirit is there for all to see.
“We believe in each other,” admitted the winger.
“We got a few tries at the end there and we need to keep that belief between us. The games we do win it always happens that we score then they score and I think we need to get a bit more of a ruthless attitude and put teams like these to bed, especially when we score that many points.
“Attack is good but it’s just so disappointing and there’s a couple of results we didn’t deserve to lose and we’ll bounce back.
“It is very disappointing to put that many points on a top three side and not come away with the win. I think we are losing the game and not really getting beat.
“The good thing is we are really united as a group and we are going through a bit of adversity at the moment but I know we’ll come back out of it and pull together. Then once we get a few wins winning becomes a habit.”
Richard Agar’s men have lost a number of close games this campaign which included the score against Warrington and Fox gives his reasoning behind the current results.
“It’s defence, lapses in concentration and individually. Together when we play as a team we have proven we can score tries, we just need to sharpen up. There were times in that game where we looked really good and really threatening which we can take positives out of.
“Then we let in back to back tries and we don’t seem the same team.”
Wildcats host Hemel Stags on Saturday, kick-off 6pm and Fox is hoping that game will turn the season around.
“I’ve seen it before in the past when a team is having a really bad run, they get a good draw in the Challenge Cup and they’ll put a lot of points on that team and it boosts your confidence as a club and we can use that to our advantage this Saturday, I’m looking forward to it.”
