Chester dreaming of Challenge Cup glory following progression to the semi-finals

Chirs Chester insists Wakefield cannot get carried away following their Challenge Cup quarter-final victory, but admits he is desperate to create history with the Wildcats.

A 28-16 victory saw the Wildcats advance to the last four of the competition for the first time since 2008, with the victory making Chester dream of seeing his own players lift the famous trophy at Wembley.

“It’s a long time since this club has been involved in semi-finals and finals and it’d be great to create our own little bit of history,” Chester said.

“You see the pictures of Neil Fox and Derek Turner lifting the Cup, hopefully we see the likes of Tom Johnstone doing that one day. We can’t afford to lose focus, we’ve got a Super League campaign to focus on.

“I thought we set the tone in the first 15 minutes. We were very dominant, we got off to a really good start and we strangled them with field position. Defensively we were very good and I said why can’t we do this every game! The challenge is to find some consistency but it’s a great feeling to be in the next round of the Challenge Cup.”
