Marc Sneyd kicked 14 points as Hull FC pulled away in the second half to beat Wakefield and move above them into third place in the Super League table.

Hull scored early through Albert Kelly and survived an early Gareth Ellis yellow card to reach half-time ahead.

A quickfire double from Joe Westerman and Sneyd’s accuracy from the tee then helped them stretch clear.

Wakefield’s Max Jowitt did score his second try of the game but it proved to be a mere consolation.

When Kelly went under the posts in the opening minutes the Black and Whites looked to be firing, but Ellis’ sin-binning gave Trinity the chance to seize the momentum.

They made the most of their man advantage when Jowitt touched down, but when the numbers were evened up Connor Wyne’s try and the boot of Sneyd put the home side back ahead.

Justin Horo’s score got the visitors into the contest before the break but Lee Radford’s team had just too much after the restart.

It is now four wins in five Super League matches for Hull FC – that one defeat was a 62-16 mauling at leaders St Helens on Easter Monday.
