07:00, 30 Jul 2023

Wakefield Trinity's unlikely bid to overcome 14 straight losses at the start of the season and stay in the Betfred Super League continues on Sunday when Warrington Wolves come to Belle Vue.

The latest game being played during the RFL's Tackle the Tough Stuff campaign could see Trinity make gains on second-bottom Castleford Tigers after their latest loss, so here is everything you need to know about Sunday's clash.

Nobody could have predicted five rounds ago that Wakefield would be in the position they are heading into this one, protecting a three-match winning run on home territory and within a puncher's distance of lifting themselves off the bottom of Super League. Mark Applegarth has finally seen things starting to click, with mid-season additions Will Dagger and David Fifita among the big reasons for their excellent form of late.

The Wire are coming from the extreme perspective, with their fantastic opening to the season having made way for a run of five straight losses in all competitions. Daryl Powell's side need to get back to winning ways or else they risk missing the play-offs entirely, and such an outcome would perhaps be considered even more disastrous than 2022's 11th-place finish.

Sportsman stat: Warrington have recorded five-game losing streaks in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2008-2009, when they ended '08 with five defeats and extended their winless run to 10 with five more to begin '09.
