Daryl Powell says Warrington found the six day turnaround ahead of the Salford game hurt his side

Daryl Powell’s Warrington Wolves battled back from 20-6 to defeat Salford Red Devils last night but at halftime it looked worrying for the Wolves.

It appeared that the Wolves could be emulating their 2022 mistakes.

However, speaking on Sky Sports Powell said he felt Warrington’s slow start was down to the turn around after their clash with Huddersfield Giants last Friday.

“The second half showed our character, last week was really tough against Huddersfield whether that took something out of us and a six day turn around is really tough.

“Some of the GPS was out the ceiling so that was tough and we should a lot of character in the second half and we have shown that we can find ourselves back into the game.”

He gave his assessment of the performance as a whole: “We had to find some pressure and we did that.

“I don’t think there is any doubt about that. People keep asking me about last year even though we’re in this year.

“We had to comeback and to respond in that way is great. We learnt some lessons today and we found a victory under pressure.

“For us it is about consistency. We are working our way towards it. We have had the chance to learn quite a few lessons.

“I didn’t think it looked great, I asked the boys to find a better defensive effort because they just unravelled us and I thought our mindset was poor but to be able to flip that around is a special skill.”
