Chester staying grounded despite Wakefield’s strong win over Hull KR

Chris Chester conceded the club’s top four aspirations remain unlikely despite their big win over Hull KR.

Their 54-18 win over the Robins put them five points above the bottom four, and just four points off a place in the play-offs.

But with Trinity starting to look up the table rather than down it once again, Chester refused to get carried away.

“It will be very, very difficult for us to get in that top four,” he said.

“The top six is probably more realistic. We’ll just keep working hard and try to put some wins together. We’ve spoken about how important this month is. I think it’s a real important win for us and to keep the momentum going.”

On the game, he added: “Confidence wise, it will do us the world of good that result.

“I think that was probably the best 40 minutes we’ve played in the season, we just haven’t been able to do it consistently enough.

“We’re happy that we’ve got the result. I don’t think the scoreline reflected how tough a game it was and the effort from Hull KR.

“It makes that gap a little bit bigger now between us and the teams below us.”
