HEAD coach Jon Sharp has today paid tribute to his Giants after securing a superb 42-20 Super League triumph at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats last night.
It was Huddersfield's third top-flight victory of the season and puts them in excellent heart ahead of Monday's home clash against Salford City Reds (7.30), when Australian Test centre Michael De Vere will make his eagerly-awaited debut.
That promises to be another tough encounter, with Salford having beaten Warrington 42-10 yesterday.
But Sharp believes that if his side can maintain the form they showed at Wakefield last night, there is no reason why the Giants can't make it two wins on the trot.
"You've got to be good to come to Wakefield and win," said a delighted Sharp.
"We've managed to do that, which I always knew we had the ability to do.
"I thought we were good in our last two away games at St Helens and Warrington and didn't come away with the result we deserved. But, fortunately, last night, it was a different story.
"We played for the full 80 minutes, created a lot of chances and took more than enough of them to win. We spoke in the build-up of being patient and not having to score off every set. That paid off last night.
"Let's just hope we can back up this win with another good performance against Salford."
Sharp was today taking a fitness check on his players, with the initial signs indicating they all emerged injury-free.
