Chris Chester picked up his first win as Wakefield head coach on Good Friday, with the Wildcats chief delighted with his side’s attitude.
Wakefield survived a scare to defeat the struggling Giants, with Tom Johnstone’s spectacular solo try securing victory.
The win moves Wakefield off bottom of Super Leauge, and Chester said: “Over the 80 minutes I thought we were the better side – we set the tone early doors, played some decent football, threw the ball around and defended our own line well.
“They have some quality players and we knew it would be a grind and it wasn’t until the last six or seven minutes that the game finally went away from Huddersfield.
“Tom Johnstone (who scored two tries) looked good and young Max Jowitt had a fantastic game.
“There was bags of effort from everyone and collectively we worked hard for each other. From one to 17 the attitude was first class.”
