Danny Brough is desperate for the Giants to keep growing in confidence as the Super League stakes get higher.
Victory for Huddersfield in Sunday’s home clash against Warrington would guarantee a top-four finish with two Super 8s fixtures to spare.
A 17th success of the season would also make it just three defeats in the Giants’ last 19 top-flight fixtures.
And upbeat Huddersfield skipper Brough knows that impressive record is adding to the squad’s confidence as they look to close in on a first Super League Grand Final appearance.
“To reach our target of finishing in the top four with a couple of games to spare would be a fantastic achievement, especially after losing our first three games,” said the goalkicking half-back, whose side moved to the brink of the semi-final play-offs with last week’s 40-26 home triumph over Castleford Tigers.
“We’ve been building and building as the season’s progressed, and our confidence has been growing all the time, which is a great position to be in at this stage of the year.
“The key to our success over recent months has been our ability to work hard for each other, and that was clear to see in the win over Cas.
“It was a pretty scrappy performance, but we showed we had the character to dig ourselves out of a hole, and in the end we won with a fair bit to spare.
“We know Warrington will come here on Sunday with nothing to lose and they’ve been let loose to play as they want.
“But if we put in the performance we’re capable of producing and are able to play on the front foot, then that confidence will keep on growing and we’ll keep on getting even better in the final few massive fixtures we’ve still got to play.”
