Kevin Brown believes this side could be in serious relegation trouble

Some believe tonight could be the night for Wakefield Trinity as they take on Hull FC.

If Wakefield do win they could be just two points behind Castleford Tigers and Kevin Brown believes the Tigers could be in big trouble if they get dragged into a relegation scrap because of a lack of experience.

“Wakey aren’t going to give up. They’re used to feeling this pressure, they’re used to being in and around the bottom of the table and then finishing the year with a bit of a run,” Brown said on BBC Five Live.

“Castleford not so much, they’re normally in and around the playoffs so this will be quite a lot different for some of their players.

“Wakey will see this as an opportunity to keep Hull in the mix but also have a real good tilt at Castleford.”

But does Brown think Wakefield can carry their impressive display against Warrington Wolves into this game?

“They scored a few tries which I think is a massive positive, it’s been an area where they’ve not looked like scoring which makes it even more difficult to keep the opposition out,” he said.

“They’ve always been difficult to beat but it just seems that they’ve lost their confidence. I think Wakey are expecting to lose, the fans are expecting to lose and even a losing result like that against Warrington is classed as a success. That shows how far Wakey have gone down.

“There are definite positives and I do think they’ll catch someone at home. I think they’re a better team than Toulouse and Toulouse ended up getting their act together and winning a few games.

“It will snowball, once they start scoring a few tries and they get in front I think that belief will come back quite quick but it needs to happen soon.”
