SUPER Huddersfield Giants are ready to go into their busy Easter schedule on the back of their best victory of the season.
Yesterday's 26-10 Super League triumph over last season's Grand Finalists Wigan Warriors has left the McAlpine side in the best possible shape to face two games in four days.
On Good Friday, the fifth-placed Giants entertain Salford (7.30) before heading off to Wakefield Trinity on Easter Monday (3.30).
That programme is expected to test coach Jon Sharp's squad to the full.
But he believes confidence-boosting performances like yesterday's will do his players no harm whatsoever.
"After this fantastic win over Wigan, the boys can't wait to play again," said a delighted Sharp.
"That's great, and I'm pleased the boys are able to savour wins like this.
"But at the same time they need to keep their feet on the ground.
"I took a lot of enjoyment from the way the boys played and the way they went about their task. Offensively and defensively, I thought overall we went well.
"However, it was also obvious there is still a lot of work in front of us.
"I was particularly concerned that we didn't finish off more of the breaks we created. We came up dry far too often.
"We have to address issues such as this, and hopefully it'll be different over Easter.
"Salford and Wakefield won't make it easy for us, we know that, so we need to work hard this week to make sure we're well prepared to meet the challenges ahead.
"The early signs suggest we've again come through another tough match with no major issues, which is another big bonus.
"We don't have the biggest squad in the world and it's at times like this Easter period when squads are often tested to the limit."
Giants staff, meanwhile, are preparing for a ticket frenzy at their McAlpine office tomorrow.
Tickets for the Powergen Challenge Cup semi-final showdown with St Helens at Warrington on Sunday, April 25 go on sale at 10am in the morning.
They are priced at £18 adults and £10 concessions for side-on seating, £16 and £8 for side-on standing, and £14 and £7 for behind-the-posts seating.
The club has an initial allocation of 4,500, which is slightly less than St Helens, and Giants general manager Richard Thewlis has stressed the need for them to go quickly to guarantee an extra batch.
"We obviously want as many Giants fans there as possible, but it's only if we sell out fast that the RFL will give us more," he said.
As well as going on sale at the office, tickets can also be purchased on the ticket hotline, 01484 511199, from 10am tomorrow.
