Wakefield are dangerous, says Huddersfield Giants boss

Huddersfield Giants boss Paul Anderson admits there is ‘a lot at stake’ ahead of this weekend’s West Yorkshire derby against Wakefield, and is wary of how dangerous the Wildcats can be.

After their shock win against Warrington last time out, the Wildcats are still well in the mix for the top eight, and Anderson is under no illusions as to how tough a test it will be. However, he says if they play how they did against Catalan last weekend, they can be more than a match for every side in the league.

“There’s a lot at stake isn’t there? The results went for us last week by Wakefield beating Warrington, and they’re in a rich vein of form,” Anderson said.

“They’re playing with confidence and they appear to be enjoying themselves. It seems as though James Webster is enjoying coaching and they’ve got a good spirit. We know we’ve got to turn up with the same vigour and endeavour we did against Catalan. if we do the things we did against Catalan we know we’re a match for anybody.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, a team that gets any sort of confidence is a very dangerous beast. They’ve got some good players there, bringing Tim Smith back has probably helped them. They’re playing for each other which is the key.”
