Wakefield assistant boss Lee Gilmour insists the pressure is firmly off the squad ahead of Friday’s trip to take on St Helens.
The Wildcats claimed an eighth place finish this season with ease but now just have St Helens left to play after failing to make the play-offs.
Gilmour feels that Friday’s trip to Langtree Park provides the squad with the chance to play some rugby with the pressure off and enjoy themselves.
The assistant insists that plans are already in place for the 2017 season and feels no matter what Friday’s results is it won’t affect their confidence.
Gilmour said: "There's absolutely no pressure on us.
"Whether we get this win or not at the weekend, it's not going to change our mindset for next year, or dent our confidence in any way, shape or form.
"We know how we've played, the last couple of weeks in particular.
"We know we've got some very good players that are not fit at the minute, and we'll have some new, exciting players ready to join us next year.
"We're not too concerned about this being some big, important game, though, obviously, we are going to go there and give everything we've got.
"It's 80 minutes left of a what's been a long, tough season for these players.”
