Wigan Warriors coach Shaun Wane says that his team showed gritty determination to score a last-minute try in their 26-20 win over Bradford Bulls yesterday.

Shaun Wane has said that Wigan Warriors showed "gritty determination" during their 26-20 win over Bradford Bulls yesterday evening.

The league leaders needed a last-minute try from Chris Tuson to secure the win, having trailed 20-14 with four minutes left to play.

The coach told Sky Sports News: "It was exciting. Fair play to Bradford, they turned up and played really well. They threatened our line and they are busted like us with injuries.

"It was two equally matched teams and thought they played very well. Just to win that game was a great effort from us. We showed gritty determination to stay in it right until the end.

"I knew we had tries in us. We just needed to keep hold of the ball and complete our sets. In the last 25 minutes we did that and we put some tries away. I feel like the way we stuck at it until the end, that determination is going to win you big games and today was a big game in a different sort of way."

The win ends a run of two defeats for the Warriors.
