Agar fears the worst from Hull


The Wakefield coach, Richard Agar, is not expecting any favours from his old club Hull when they take on Bradford tonight.

Agar's Wildcats, on five straight wins, are going head-to-head with the Bulls for the last play-off spot, although 10th-placed Hull KR will rekindle their outside hopes if they topple Wigan tomorrow. Wakefield, who are a point behind the Bulls with two games of the regular season left, could take over eighth spot if Hull win at Odsal and they beat Widnes at home tomorrow.

Gloomy Agar fears Hull will play like they did in their 42-16 rout last time out at Widnes. "Their away form has not been great all year. I am expecting Bradford to win."
