Hull KR fought back from behind to beat Wakefield and all-but secure their Super League status.
New Zealand international Kevin Locke ran in twice and Lee Smith crossed as the Wildcats made a bright start.
Josh Mantellato got the hosts back in it before Kieran Dixon made it 10-12 at the break.
Dixon ran in his second before Shaun Lunt looked to have won it for Hull KR but Lee Smith got his second score to make the final few minutes edgy.
The Robins, hammered 50-0 by Leeds Rhinos in the Challenge Cup final last week, have now won all four of their matches in The Qualifiers.
Wakefield have won two and lost two in the second stage of the season and currently sit in fourth place on points difference.
