Wakefield boss believes his side are “getting punished”

Wakefield boss Chris Chester believes his side are “getting punished” after being asked to comment on yet another postponed Trinity fixture.

The West Yorkshire club’s fixture against Salford had to be postponed due to the latter’s positive cases and Chester is upset about the prospect of playing a midweek fixture.

“I will be disappointed if we are asked to play a midweek game through no fault of our own,” said Chester.

“Twice, we have had games called off against Salford. The first one, what happened was inexcusable, but that is for a later date.

“We have another game that gets called off and then we could be expected to play a midweek game between a Sunday and a Sunday game or a Friday and a Sunday game.

“We are getting punished and for me the teams that don’t run an academy system are benefitting from what is happening.”

Chester admitted his side are doing everything they possibly can to keep the fixture list ticking over.

“I just find it mind-blowing at times – we are doing our best to make sure we are fulfilling everything we need to.

“We just get kicked from pillar to post – through no fault of ours, we are expected to catch up on a game.

“It is just really, really frustrating.”

At present, Trinity have played 15 games – the joint-highest in Super League.
