The Wildcats, who won their last seven matches of last season to sneak into the top eight, are threatening to repeat the feat after winning their last four matches to move to within a point of eighth-placed Hull with a game in hand.
That game is at home to Leeds next Friday, which means Wakefield's back-to-back clashes with the champions, starting at Headingley tonight, could determine their fate.
"We've spoken about that," Agar said. "We can almost treat it as it's own little mini-series.
"We've had a lot of matches against Leeds over the last two seasons so we are familiar with how they play and what we think is required against them."
Leeds coach Brian McDermott, whose side ended the Wildcats' Grand-Final attempt at the first hurdle last September, agrees he has not had to do much homework in the build up to tonight's derby.
"I think we've both worked each other out," he said. "We're quite familiar with each other."
Wakefield are without stand-off Paul Sykes, who is almost certain to miss the rest of the season with a broken leg, while Leeds are expected to make a late call on skipper Kevin Sinfield, who has been out for five weeks with a dislocated thumb.
Teenager Liam Sutcliffe has slotted comfortably into Sinfield's shoes and Agar also believes other players have stepped up in his absence.
"Whether Kevin plays or not, they have got top-quality replacements," Agar said. "Paul McShane is a cracking player, Rob Burrow has played international football at half-back and young Sutcliffe has probably been the find of the season for them.
"I would say they've arguably the most talented and deepest squad in the game."
Hull, who have lost their last four league games to slip out of the top four, will be aiming to hold off Wakefield's charge when they visit Bradford.
The Black and Whites emerged from their slump last weekend by knocking Catalan Dragons out of the Tetley's Challenge Cup and centre Kirk Yeaman is confident they can put next Saturday's semi-final against Warrington to the back of their minds.
"We want to finish as high as we can in the table to give ourselves the best possible chance in the play-offs," he said. "The Challenge Cup has taken the back seat for now and we've got to concentrate on Bradford this week."
The Bulls are desperate for the points after winning just one of their last 10 matches to drop from third to 10th and coach Francis Cummins describes the game as pivotal.
"We just need to put everything into this game and we need to be professional and get the two points," Cummins said. "Then we can look at games further on."
