With Wigan dealing with a Regal Trophy Semi Final, Leeds
had played twice to go one point clear top of the table in the interim.
Wigan had two games in hand but it created a little bit of pressure for this
Friday Sky trip to face third placed Bradford. This was a slog of a face on
a frigid night at Odsal. Two Deryck Fox Penalty Goals had Bradford 4-0 up
but Wigan got level four minutes before the interval when Frano Botica
scored from his own chip over the top. That left a 4-4 half time score.
Wigan then took the lead four minutes after the interval when Henry Paul
scored from Craig Murdock's kick and it looked like the win was safe when
Paul Atcheson scored 13 minutes from time despite complaints of a double
movement by the Odsal faithful. That made it 14-4 but a late try from Paul
Dixon left Wigan sweated up to the final hooter. They hung on to go back
Bradford 4 Wigan 4
