Chester subdued after Cup victory

Wakefield coach Chris Chester admits that making progress to round six of the Challenge Cup and the return to action of David Fifita and Danny Brough were the only real positives to come out of Friday’s Cup derby against Bradford.
Trinity were 17-14 victors after trailing 14-7 to the Championship battlers, led by former Wakefield coach John Kear, and Chester admitted: “The best team lost.
“They created far more opportunities than us certainly in that first 10 or 15 minutes. They could have been two or three scores up.
“We’re in the draw for the next round and that’s probably the one and only plus in the performance.
“But I don’t want to take any credit away from Bradford. I thought they were absolutely superb.
“We spoke all week about complacency and attitude and not being out-enthused, but I thought we got out-enthused.
“That’s the effect John (Kear) has on a team. It was a very, very ugly win for us.”
Prop Fifita hadn’t played since last season because of a problematic foot injury that required surgery.
Halfback Brough had damaged knee ligaments during the first game of the current Super League campaign away to Hull KR.
