DEFIANT Giants coach Jon Sharp is refusing to concede defeat in the battle to secure a place in Super League's top six play-offs.
Huddersfield are now four points adrift of sixth-placed London after their 35-26 defeat by the Broncos at Brentford yesterday.
With just six matches to go before the end of the season, time is running out for the Giants to close the gap.
But Sharp remains confident that can be achieved.
"I definitely still believe we can finish in the top six," he declared.
"If we continue to play like we have been, I'm sure we can start picking up the wins and close the deficit.
"We have a weekend off coming up (because of the Challenge Cup semi-finals at the Galpharm) and given our current injury situation, the timing couldn't be better.
"It's the chance to rest and to bring back some of our injured players.
"The injuries once again made it so much more difficult for us against London.
"Besides missing Michael De Vere (hand), Stanley Gene (knee), Stuart Jones (ankle) and Ben Roarty (neck), we also lost Stuart Donlan to a knee injury on Saturday morning and Marcus St Hilaire to a thigh-muscle injury yesterday morning.
"On top of that, there was also no Paul Reilly due to suspension.
"As a result, we had to call up Thomas Hemingway and Stephen Jones at the very last minute.
"Both of them did exceptionally well and I was proud of the way they performed in what were very testing circumstances.
"But I was proud of everyone for the effort they produced against a very good and strong London side.
"We do have the chance to claw back the gap on London when we go back down to the capital on September 4.
"Hopefully, we'll have a far healthier squad available and the result will go in our favour.
"The spirit shown by the team yesterday couldn't be faulted and I know this team will battle on right to the end.
"There's no way anyone in this camp is ready to throw in the towel for a place in the play-offs."
