KO 7.45pm WAKE­FIELD coach Chris Ch­ester is rel­ish­ing a sec­ond crack at the cham­pi­ons in the space of a week.

Bot­tom club Trin­ity’s patched-up side pushed Saints all the way last Fri­day be­fore fall­ing to a 16-20 de­feat, and are boosted by the re­turn of play­ers from Covid pro­ce­dures.

Ch­ester (right) said: “I wasn’t frus­trated about the re­sult, more frus­trated that we can’t play like that week-in week-out. It’s been an is­sue for a num­ber of years and that’s some­thing we’re try­ing to ad­dress now.

“But there were some good signs last week – we at­tacked well and toughed it out in the mid­dle.

“We were held up over the line two or three times and if we’d fin­ished those tries it could have been a dif­fer­ent story. But it was prob­a­bly the best per­for­mance since lock­down.”
