Wakefield Trinity are still waiting for their first win and missed what many felt was a big opportunity to claim it tonight at home against Hull FC.
Trinity have failed to score in five games and have now been unable to score more than one try in nine games but last week impressed against Warrington Wolves.
Many feel that if they couldn’t win tonight they were doomed.
That is true of fans as well with a huge 91% of fans who voted in Sky Sports’ poll earlier believing Wakefield won’t be in Super League next year.
Less than 9% of supporters believe they can turn it around.
Wakefield are currently 4 points behind 11th placed Castleford Tigers.
That said, Salford Red Devils boss Paul Rowley has had his say on the matter.
“Well they need to pick wins up, it’s as simple as that,” he said on BBC Five Live when asked if Wakefield could be doomed.
“Obviously Hull will take themselves out of that zone in the table with a win, other than the last two at the minute it can pretty much change and flip within the space of two weeks.
“It doesn’t look healthy but we say this every year and Wakefield have this knack of finding a way and fighting their way out of trouble.
“There’s a long way to go yet and a lot of points to play for. My experience of Wakefield is that they’re not a side that are going to give up, that’s what history tells us and also in my experience this year against them. They were spirited throughout.”
Nonetheless, tonight’s defeat leave them winless and bottom relying on Castleford to continue ti struggle.
