Despite the Wildcats recent good form winger Peter Fox isn’t taking anything for granted when they entertain Widnes on Monday night.
The one point win against Hull FC was one of Wakefield’s best wins of the season which means they go into the game against the Vikings as favourites.
Regardless of this, Fox believes the squad can ill afford to rest on their laurels when a Widnes team full of threats visit the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
“We have won three games in a row but we can’t be over confident because if you go into a game like Widnes like that you could end up getting turned over.
“I think they have got stars in their side, people like Gaz Hock and Kevin Brown can produce magic so we’re just taking every game as it comes, that’s what we did last year when we had the run.
“They have got some real threats; Hanbury is really fast and can dust people on the outside. There are threats right across the board with Widnes so we’re not taking this game lightly.”
During the game at the KC Stadium on Monday the former Hull KR winger scored one of the try’s of the game after taking a superb kick from Tim Smith to score.
The Wildcats number 2 says that they have worked on that play plenty of times in training so it was great to see it come off in a match.
“It was unbelievable that kick, I really enjoyed it and I have been wanting one of those tries for a while. We practice it all the time in training so to get one in the game was awesome.”
That score from Fox was quickly cancelled out by a try from the hosts to make it 26 all, but thanks to a drop goal from centre Lee Smith Trinity were able to record a memorable victory.
Although the win against Hull was crucial in terms of keeping in touch with the top eight, the 28-year-old believes the squad still have plenty to improve on and need to concentrate on their own game in order to be successful.
“I didn’t think we were that great on Monday against Hull, we got the two points but it was a bit of a scrappy game to be quite honest.
“We did a couple of yardage errors that resulted in tries, obviously that kick which Crooks took was maybe the wrong option.
“We want to show our best on Monday so we have got to sharpen up from that really and concentrate on ourselves.”
Tickets for tonight’s match are priced at just £13 adults and £8 juniors/concessions on the gate.
