Super League: Wigan boss Matt Peet makes Wakefield admission as Warriors prepare for Warrington

Wigan Warriors will be looking to bounce back from a shock defeat to bottom-of-the-table Wakefield Trinity.

Wigan head coach Matt Peet has backed his side to emerge stronger from last week's agonising golden-point defeat to Betfred Super League whipping boys Wakefield. 

The Warriors look to re-ignite their play-off hopes against neighbours Warrington on Friday having endured a week of tough soul-searching on the back of the dramatic 27-26 loss.
Peet's men led three times at Belle Vue, including by eight points late in the second half, before Trinity scrambled level and Will Dagger's extra-time kick secured the precious win for the bottom side.
It was an uncharacteristic performance in what has been a relatively consistent season for Wigan and Peet admitted: "It was important the players and staff took it hard and understood it was one we got wrong.
"If we'd been more hard-nosed and ruthless in the last 10 minutes, we might have got away with the two points, and I'm confident if we get put in the same position this week, we'll manage the game better.
"You have to learn some lessons that hurt sometimes. You wish you didn't have to go through that process, but if the outcome is a hungrier and more intelligent team, then we can turn it into a positive."
Following Friday's match with Warrington, Wigan will turn their focus on the Challenge Cup where they will meet Hull KR.
Their last game in July will come at home against high-flying Leigh Leopards.
