Price urges Warrington to focus on basics
Steve Price says Warrington have to do "the basics well" if they are to overcome Hull FC in the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup.
The Wire thrashed Hull FC 63-12 earlier in the campaign but the Black and Whites won the most recent meeting between the two 19-12 in May.
The two Super League clubs meet in the first game of a Challenge Cup last four double-header at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday, and Warrington coach Price is expecting a stern test.
Hull FC have been in good form with eight wins in their last 11 games in all competitions, while Warrington have just two wins in their last six, but Price is confident his side can reach the final.
Price believes Saturday's clash may well be a tight affair and says it is vital his players focus on doing the basics well.
"In big games it's about doing the basics well," he told the Warrington Guardian.
"We need to be turning the ball over in good position and playing with a lot of energy.
"The whole momentum and tempo of the game changes when you do that and that's what we need to get back to.
"They've had their ups and downs. They've had a fair amount of points put on them in Super League but in saying that, they've had some good wins of late.
"They've got a great roster, a great spine and good go-forward – as have we.
"We've got a good football team too but we have to get back to what we do well."
