Paul Sykes was the hero for Wakefield for the second week running

Paul Sykes' drop goal with 40 seconds remaining gave Wakefield a 31-30 win over Hull KR and secured their fifth win in a row.

It was the second week running that Sykes pulled off a game-winning drop-goal after his effort last week against St Helens.

Wakefield won with a lot of help from former Rovers players now playing for Richard Agar. Ben Cockayne (two), Peter Fox and Frankie Mariano all had spells at the East Yorkshire side before moving on in recent years.

Dean Collis and Kyle Wood also crossed over for the Wildcats with Liam Salter, Graeme Horne, Lincoln Withers, Ben Galea and Josh Hodgson scoring tries for Rovers.
