CHRIS Chester is expecting to come up against an “emotionally fragile” Warrington Wolves side on Friday night.

His Wakefield Trinity side provide the opposition at The Halliwell Jones Stadium as The Wire aim to bounce back from exiting the Challenge Cup at the hands of Castleford Tigers.

Chester brings his team to Cheshire in fine form as they aim to make it four wins in a row.

Their 30-20 win over Leigh Centurions on Sunday was the only Super League game played at the weekend and it followed victories over Huddersfield Giants and Hull KR.

However, they have lost on their last seven trips to face Warrington on home turf with their last win at The Halliwell Jones Stadium coming back in 2014.

“They will probably be emotionally fragile,” Chester said.

“They were expected to win that game and every year, Warrington are expected to be in a final of some sort. They’ve got one more to go at now in the Grand Final.

“The focus for us in the limited time we’ve had training has been improvements from the weekend and making sure we raise the standards.

“I thought our standards dropped at the weekend. In things like concentration and execution, we were missing the jump on certain things and forced the pass too much.

“When we talk about playing the Wakefield way, sometimes it has a negative effect and you do try and play too much.

“We can’t be too critical of the players – that’s the way we feel is the best way for them to play and it’s certainly worked for us in the past three weeks.”

Chester could have star winger Tom Johnstone back in contention after concussion issues have forced him to sit out for more than a month.

The Trinity boss confirmed the England international would play either on Friday or the home game against Castleford on Wednesday, but not both.

Second rower Kelepi Tanginoa will also be given as much time as possible to recover from injury to feature.
