Trinity | Tinirau Arona ahead of facing Widnes Vikings

Wakefield travel to Widnes tonight hoping to force their way back into the top four of Super League ahead of the split for the Super 8s.

Forward Tinirau Arona spoke to Radio Yorkshire's Derek Clark ahead of the game and started by looking back at the last gasp defeat to leaders Castleford last week:

"It was a tough one, especially over the weekend it took me a while to get over it.  I was disappointed we didn't get the two points.  But coming in on Monday and reviewing the game and seeing how we played as a group and as a unit we took a lot of positives out of the game.  It's all about where we go from here."

Trinity have beaten Widnes twice already this season at Belle Vue and Magic Weekend and a third win would enhance their chances of leapfrogging the teams immediately above them in the table:

"To give ourselves a good chance in the top four, we have to treat each game as though it's a semi-final or final.  We can't go into any game taking anyone lightly.  The job is to come in with the right attitude and get the two points.

"I am sure Widnes' result last week will make them work even harder against us but we will be prepared and will get the job done.

"If we can win the next two games we will give ourselves a great chance in the Super 8s.  It's all about going week by week."

Coach Chris Chester has included captain Danny Kirmond in his squad after a knee problem and Arona was quick to praise the skipper.

"Danny is a big leader in our team.  He leads the team on and off the field.  He has done a great job to get back on the field so quickly."
