Winning all that matters tonight, insists Radford

Hull FC coach Lee Radford is adamant that his team’s performance is irrelevant tonight – with two vital competition points the only thing that matters to him and his team.

After three straight losses in all competitions, the Black and Whites play the first of two games against Wakefield in five days tonight, with a win moving them back into the top eight.

And Radford admits that Wakefield will be “fresher” than his side after their Challenge Cup exploits at the weekend, which makes the result the only thing of importance tonight.

“I am not worried about the performance tonight I’m just worried about winning,” Radford told the Hull Daily Mail.

“We need to get back on the horse and get the win. They should be fresher than us and if we have to scrape the win then I’ll take that.

“We have had some light sessions in the build-up and it has just been about trying to patch everybody up in preparation.”
