Wildcats hooker Pita Godinet is hoping Trinity can build on the 48-18 victory over Bradford Bulls last week and go all guns blazing over at Leigh tomorrow afternoon.

Godinet made his return from an injury lay-off last weekend and played an influential part in a dominant performance, which saw Brian Smith's men rack up 48 points.

The Samoan international said he was pleased to get back out on the pitch and praised the forward pack who made his role at dummy-half a whole lot easier.

"It was a bit of a shock to me that I was playing last week." admits Godinet.

"Scott Moore unfortunately picked up an injury during the captain's run and the medical staff had to assess him to see how serious the injury was so I didn't get the nod until the night before. It's great to be back out on the field with the lads though and I really enjoyed the game."

"The forward pack set a great platform and when that happens your outside backs get plenty of room to do their stuff and that was the case against Bradford, when they're doing the tough stuff and making yards it makes my job at hooker a lot easier, so credit has to go to them."

Tomorrow's opponents, Leigh Centurions, are on the back of two losses against Hull KR and Salford Red Devils. However, Godinet is wary of the Centurions' threat and insists the Wildcats must be firing on all cylinders if they are to come away with the spoils.

"Leigh's game plan probably didn't go to plan in there game against Salford but they're a really dangerous team and they have a nothing to lose attitude. They will throw everything at us right from the kick-off."

"They've got plenty of flair players in their squad and they've got a good blend of experience too so they will be ready to give it to us on Saturday, especially in front of a home crowd."

"We've got to be 100% focused. Training's been great so far this week, everyone's can't wait for the game and there's plenty of smiles in the camp. We want to take the good things from last week into the game with us and build on them."

The number 14 has become a firm fans favourite since he joined the club from New Zealand Warriors ahead of the 2014 campaign and he appreciates the loyal support from the Wildcats faithful, admitting it gives the lads a huge lift.

"If we can get a great crowd over at Leigh that would be top class. It really does help us out and give us a boost of energy when they're making noise behind the posts."

"They've been great all season and i'm sure the atmosphere will be rocking this week. Leigh's fans are pretty vocal too and they'll try and drown us out but hopefully we can keep them quiet and come away with the win."
