GIANTS coach Jon Sharp feels a win is all his side needs to spark their Super League season.

Huddersfield slipped to an 18-16 home defeat at the hands of Wakefield Trinity, leaving them with only one win in their last seven outings, but Sharp feels a single victory could turn the campaign around.

"I think that we perhaps just need to add a little bit of belief," said Sharp.

"The fact that we have been in a position to win in most of our recent games tells me that this is a good side but we perhaps need the win to take away a little anxiety."

The Giants held a 12-4 lead midway through the first half but Wakefield recovered to claim their first win over the Giants since 2004. Sharp still feels his team are close to a top run.

"I think we might have made it tough on ourselves at times, but I am still encouraged by what we are doing at the moment," he said.

"I thought the best team lost on Saturday night, but we have got to focus on our performance.

"We were ahead against Wakefield as we were against Catalans, Wigan and Hull KR, but we have not come away with the wins.

"But the positive thing is that we are playing some good stuff and creating plenty of chances on attack. It is probably the case that a win is all we need to give the lads a bit of a lift."

Wakefield coach John Kear dedicated his side’s first away win of the season to popular player Adam Watene, who flew back home to New Zealand this week following the death of his father.

"Adam is on compassionate leave and this win is dedicated to Adam and his family," said Kear.

"It is something the players spoke about before the game. Things like this draw you close and that is what it has done. The players have done Adam proud and themselves proud."
