KEIRON Cunningham said his side kept “finding a way” as they beat Wakefield on Sunday.
In a real end to end contest, Saints emerged 44-32 victors to keep up their top four hunt.
“I thought we deserved it,” he said. “We got into the lead and looked like we were doing enough to be in control of the game. But we gifted a lot of points to Wakefield with ill-discipline, dropped balls and penalties. We weren’t clinical enough with our discipline at times and our completion was poor.
“But, you have to give them credit; they kept finding a way to get in front and hold on to the lead. I’m sure the speccies got their money’s worth today.
“Every time we come here it is a similar game. It’s not good for my heart but speaks buckets for the team and the confidence they have. We know we have to be smarter in different areas but we would have taken the two points before the game.
“Wakefield have a lot of points in them but I knew we did too if we could get into the right parts of the field. When we did that we showed we did have those points.”
He continued: “Kyle Amor… he was like Sam Backo flying down the wing at the end. I thought he was excellent as was Alex Walmsley, Jonny Lomax, Jon Wilkin, Jordan Turner and James Roby.
“That spine of the team did well but Kyle had a massive influence on a lot of the good stuff we did in the second half. He put his Cumbrian teammate away (Morgan Knowles) for a try under the posts and then sent young Matty Flem away too!”
Cunningham confirmed that Adam Swift suffered a bang on the head in the first half and couldn’t return to the field.
