Winning run continues.

Wigan re-claimed third spot in Super League as they sent the Tigers crashing to their fourth defeat on the trot.

But it took late tries from David Hodgson and Paul Johnson to finally kill off Castleford in this bone-cruncher of a game.

Skipper Andy Farrell again played a vital role landing six goals - leaving him just two points short of 3,000 career points - while Danny Orr could only manage one.

The Warriors led twice in the first half but went in at the break trailing by 10-8.

Two Farrell penalty goals provided the early advantage before the Tigers grabbed the first try.

Hooker Ryan Hudson made it with a brilliant pass to send in Danny Orr, who made up for an earlier penalty miss by landing the conversion.

Wigan were back in front when Adrian Lam's cross-field kick was spilled by Andrew McNally, and Martin Aspinwall accepted the gift try.

Castleford, already missing Michael Eager and Wayne Bartrim, suffered a double blow when forwards Hudson and Michael Smith picked up early injuries.

But the Warriors failed to cash in on two more chances with Aspinwall knocking on near to the line, and Sean O'Loughlin firing a pass into touch.

They also paid the price for some sloppy handling, and Castleford's pressure paid off when Orr's kick to the corner was plucked out of the air by Aussie Paul Mellor who touched down to give the Tigers a two-point lead at half time.

Two more penalty goals from Farrell put Wigan back in charge and he converted both late tries - the pick of them a 55-yard run from Hodgson.

The Yorkshire winger picked up the ball from dummy half and beat five would be tacklers on his way to the line.

Despite the Tigers, valiant attempts Paul Johnson sealed the win late on with a try in the 76th minute, with his skipper adding the extras
