Hooker Paul McShane says the Wildcats need to make the most of home advantage over the next two months.

Paul McShane has called for the Wildcats to make the most of home advantage.

Trinity host Warrington on Sunday before travelling to Bradford Bulls ahead of five successive home fixtures that could shape the season.

The Wildcats sit eight points clear of the bottom two and within striking distance of Salford Red Devils above them in the First Utility Super League table going into Sunday’s match.

McShane says the side are entering a key period of the campaign and has called for the Wildcats to target a strong run of results and despite the setback against Castleford Tigers last week, is confident the team have the quality to pick up more victories.

“We seem to get to a decent level and then the result doesn’t go our way and we let ourselves back down,” was McShane’s assessment of the first half of the year for Trinity.

“As a club we’ve had a lot of change so going through that change it’s going to take a bit of time.  It’s just the patience and we have shown a few times this season that we are a decent side.

“You prefer to play at home because you get your fans behind you.  It’s an important period for us as well at that time.  We’ve got some crucial home games so home advantage is going to help and hopefully spur us on.

“We need to take wins when they come.  We don’t go into any game thinking we don’t want to win a game but that is a massive opportunity for us and it’s going to show in the ladder after those results, so it’s a massive few games.  But we need to build well in the game leading up to that.

“If you get a few injuries or a few bodies back then you don’t know what results are going to go for you or against you.”
