Warrington centre Matty Blythe says the club are on the brink of seeing years of hard work pay off by winning the Super League Leader's Shield.

The Wolves are top of the Super League with just one game left to play.

"It's been a long time and over the last five or six years we have been warming towards finishing top," Blythe told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"We've always spoken about it but never done it. This year has been pretty special but we're not there yet."

Warrington moved closer to the prize by beating title rivals Wigan 39-12 on Sunday.

And the Leader's Shield will now belong to the Wolves should they win at Hull on Friday, but Blythe admits their opponents could cause an upset at the KC Stadium.

"We've got a really tough game against Hull," Blythe added. "We're always confident, otherwise there would be no point in going up to Hull if you don't think you're going to win.

"They're in really good form but we're looking to come away with the two points and be the league leaders."
