Francis Cummins has hailed his Bradford side following their 26-24 win against Wakefield.

The Bulls came from eight points down in the second half to claim the win which sees them sitting two points below eighth-placed Hull with three games remaining.

"In the first half we didn't get any kind of field position. We weren't getting any kind of rhythm but the character was there," said Cummins.

"Defensively there were negatives, but with ball in hand Keith Lulia is a handful. He did really well with some short-side plays.

"Wakefield are right behind us so it was a big win. It gives us another week in the race for the play-offs.

"We do need to improve and we need to ask more questions of the opposition."

Frustration

Meanwhile Wakefield coach Richard Agar expressed frustration after losing a vital match and believes his side created the most opportunities.

"I thought we gave the game away today. To tell you the truth I thought we were all over them in the first half," said Agar.

"I thought we created the most chances. We let in two soft tries. We needed to be more clinical.

"It makes it hard for us to make the play-offs, and Bradford have now leapfrogged us.

"There will certainly be some changes next week. We've got some players who have been making too many errors for too long."
