Warrington coach Tony Smith demanded a big improvement from his side ahead of weekend’s Challenge Cup showdown with Huddersfield.

The Wolves are one of the hot favourites to win the trophy but Smith says they will have to raise their game and improve in certain areas if they are to make it past the Giants.

Warrington pulled off a dramatic Super League win against Leeds Rhinos courtesy of a last-minute drop goal on Friday night at the Halliwell Jones Stadium and Smith admits they were lucky to take the points.

Smith was unhappy with the way his players failed to keep hold of the ball but fortunately for the Wire, unlike in previous meetings between the two sides, Leeds could not take advantage.

On Sunday, Warrington turn their attentions to the Cup they have won on four occasions in the last five years but they will have to be at their best against an in-form Huddersfield side.

“We’ll be brushing up on some of our skills and some of our ball-carrying skills, especially in contact,” Smith said ahead of the clash. “We’ll be working hard over the next week.

“We were way off with our attacking game against Leeds but fortunately they did not punish our errors as much as they could have or have done so in the past.

“We haven’t attacked that badly for a long time and we haven’t kicked that badly since last year’s Grand Final.”
