VICTORIOUS Huddersfield Giants beat Salford 24-16 in Super League last night and immediately turned their attentions to the Easter Monday match at Wakefield (3.30).

Within minutes of the game against the City Reds finishing, coach Jon Sharp began preparing his side for the trip to Belle Vue.

Last night's victory in front of over 4,000 helped the Giants maintain fifth spot in the table.

But Sharp admitted he was disappointed by his side's overall performance against Salford and has immediately taken steps to try and put that right for Monday.

"We were not as efficient as we have been in other games and that disappointed me," said Sharp.

"There was a drop off in standard and that's something that we are already addressing.

"But at least we still got the win.

"We clearly didn't play well, but everyone saw the mental toughness in the side in the way we stuck at it to get the right result. That's a very good sign.

"But we always knew that Salford would make it difficult for us.

"So, overall, these were a very good two points.

"It's now up to everyone to work to make it four points over Easter with a win at Wakefield, which will be another very tough game.

"I'm hopeful we'll be in pretty good shape for then."

Sharp is hoping to welcome back Ben Roarty to face the Wildcats after he was forced to withdraw from last night's side because of a foot injury.

But the head coach admits it will be a race against time.

"Ben's injury isn't clearing as quickly as we had hoped," added Sharp.

"We thought that by yesterday he would have been fine, but that didn't prove the case.

"We're now hoping he'll be OK for Wakefield, but we know it'll be a late call.

"Fortunately, the early signs suggest that everyone who played last night could be available."
