HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS head coach Nathan Brown is confident his side’s 32-12 home defeat by Super League leaders Wigan won’t have a negative long term effect on their title challenge.
Huddersfield were on the receiving end of a seven-try beating by the Warriors.
Had the Giants won the contest, they would have re-established a two point lead at the top of Super League – instead they are now two points adrift of the Cherry and Whites.
Yet Brown, who handed out praise to Greg Eden and David Fa’alogo for their efforts, remained upbeat and said: “I said before the game that a win or a loss would not be the end of our season.
“We would have liked to have won, but there are times when you just have to hold your hands up and admit the opposition was too good – this was one of those games.”
Brown will be taking a check on winger Jermaine McGillvary who suffered concussion following a heavy blow, while intends to bring back centre Joe Wardle after leaving the player out due to a minor injury.
