WARRINGTON Wolves coach Daryl Powell said his side are getting only bad luck as they slipped to another demoralising defeat on Saturday.

Wolves lead for most of the visit to high flying Huddersfield. 

But from leading 22-14 with 15 minutes to go, they shipped 18 points to lose 32-22, 12 crucially when Joe Bullock was in the sin bin.

Powell said: "It's deja vu.

"It's tough to take. There's a consistent theme but this was a little bit different with the weight of possession against us."

Huddersfield had the ball for 11 minutes more than Warrington in the game.

And after defending five sets on their own line in the immediate aftermath of Bullock's dismissal, Innes Senior scored in the corner and the floodgates were open.

"It's a pretty tough period when you get a bloke binned - they had the ball 11 minutes more than us in the game. I thought we did some really good things at times but we have to defend better," he said.

Powell added: "The amount of time we kept them out on our try line is difficult. That is the hardest thing as a rugby league team.

"They (Huddersfield) put you under pressure with the ball and Fages was really good today.

"We have got a tough challenge coming up. Got Wigan next week and they are a dangerous team.

"At the moment the fight is there. When we get our lights put out, they get put out pretty quick.

Warrington Guardian:

"We are getting into winning positions, we scored 20 odd today.

"Today was different to Salford and last week (against Hull KR). Today was a tough gig and a couple of calls were tough, in particular the Dufty one."

Matt Dufty appeared to be a tripped chasing a Stefan Ratchford kick, when in the act of scoring. At the time, Warrington were 22-14 ahead.

Nothing was given and from a seven tackle set, Joe Bullock was sin binned and Wire conceded 12 points while he was off.

"Thems the breaks and at the moment, we aren't getting them," he said.

England half-back George Williams pulled out before kick-off with a bad migraine forcing Peter Mata'uatia into the halves.

"He has issues with it," Powell explained. "It arises every now and again. He's on medication but there are times when he can't get rid of it. It is not ideal.

"He pulled out this morning and it forces a reshuffle."

"We were in a position to win the game so there's no excuse but, if there is any luck about, it's bad luck. We aren't getting any breaks."
