HEAD coach Steve Price said Warrington Wolves 'did not give themselves a chance' as they slid to defeat at Huddersfield Giants on Thursday night.

Despite an early Tom Lineham try, Wire lost 20-6, conceding two poor tries from kicks as Danny Brough put them under pressure.

They were also responsible for many of their own problems, conceding 14 penalties and 14 handling errors in an error-strewn display.

Price said: "It is not the standard we accept as this footy club.

"We were very confident leading into the game, we got off to a reasonable start. To come up with a performance like that is very disappointing.

"We spoke about the conditions and Danny Brough.

"He was a big difference in terms of controlling the game.

"When you are dishing out 14 errors and 14 penalties, and within that 14, three of them while we had control of the ball, it is unacceptable.

"It's a personal responsibility to be able to control the ball, it's a personal responsibility to be disciplined in the game and when you are dishing out 28 of them combined errors and penalties, you are never going to give yourself a chance."

And he said next week's derby with Widnes will be crucial as he looks to avoid three straight losses as new Wire boss, following last week's narrow loss to Leeds.

"We need to put it right," he said.

"I have confidence in this playing group to do that.

"Widnes is a very big game coming on the back of two defeats. It is going to be a very important game for us.
