Defeat was tough on Wakefield, who excelled at one of the hardest places to go in Super League, but their failure to protect the 16-0 lead they opened early on cost them dear, with Jason Batieri's last-minute try slightly flattering the hosts.
Mathias Pala and Gregory Mounis also crossed for the hosts, with Richard Mathers, Peter Fox, Dean Collis and Lee Smith the Wakefield try-scorers.
Hull are still seeking their first away win of the season after throwing away an early lead to suffer a dismal 36-16 defeat to Widnes.
