Oliver Roberts still has 100% faith in his teammates that the Giants can have a big Super League XXI finish.

And he knows a big home win over Wakefield Trinity on Sunday would be the perfect place to start.

Second-bottom Huddersfield’s hopes of securing a top-eight finish are hanging by a thread and would virtually be over if Wakefield complete the double on Sunday, following their 36-22 home win on Good Friday.

But rising Super League star Roberts has made it clear no-one at the Giants is planning to raise the white flag.

“Our performances over the past couple of weeks (against Widnes and Castleford) have been really poor,” said the 21-year-old former Bradford Bulls back-row forward, who is poised to make it 18th Giants Super League appearance this weekend.

“But that’s been down to us and the mistakes we’ve been making as much as anything else, so we know it’s something we can fix up.

“I’ve still got 100% faith in us as a group, and I know that if we play to our potential we’re still good enough to beat anyone in the competition.

“Having a couple of days off earlier in the week has definitely helped clear our heads and refreshed our bodies, so we’re feeling good ahead of the Wakefield game.

“It’s vital we back ourselves going to the game, because if you don’t then there’s no point turning up.

“As far as I’m concerned, we’re ready to do a job on them on Sunday.”
