GIANTS chief Jon Sharp will only be able to appreciate an excellent past seven days to the full if his side secures victory at Salford tonight.
A week ago, Sharp became the first Huddersfield Giants coach to lead the club to Super League victory over Bradford Bulls.
And today he has been named the Rugby League World magazine engage Super League coach of the month for May to back up the same award in April.
The victory over the Bulls and the coach of the month double has left Sharp understandably proud.
But he admits all the gloss will be taken off the excellent achievements if his side fails to produce another top performance at The Willows.
"I was highly delighted and proud to be the first Giants coach to see us win against Bradford," said Sharp.
"But I was even more proud with the way the team played.
"I thought we put some pretty good stuff together, and we played with plenty of skill and energy.
"And, defensively, we again proved a very tough nut to crack. That's reflected in the fact we've now the best defence in the competition (the Giants have conceded 228 and St Helens 229).
"So, to back that up with being named coach of the month again is a fantastic feeling, especially as Stephen Wild is player of the month and Brad Drew and Martin Aspinwall are in the team of the month.
"But, as I said when I picked up the award in April, this is a reward for everyone at the club.
"It's a reward for all the hard work put in by all the players and coaching staff.
"But, again, I need to keep stressing that we shouldn't lose our focus because things have been going so well.
"What worries me is that everything is hunky-dory and that we could get carried away.
"That's the last thing we need, particularly as we know we face a tough game at Salford tonight.
"All the gloss will have been taken off a great week if we don't play well."
