FIRED-UP Huddersfield will be aiming to extend their unbeaten four-game streak tomorrow when they entertain basement club Waterloo knowing that victory will put them one step nearer National North II salvation.
Having lifted themselves above Hull Ionians and into 12th place in the division with last week’s win at Broadstreet, coach Mark Sowerby knows his side are now on the verge of safety, but will demand a better display than they produced in the first half down in Coventry (3.00).
“For some reason we were a bit lackadaisical in the opening 40 minutes, but after a few chosen words in the interval I thought we played well in the second half and thanks to a great finish from Adam Sutcliffe for our last try, we got what we deserved,” said Sowerby.
“Although we are playing the already-relegated Waterloo tomorrow, we must cast off the attitude we had at Broadstreet and do the basics right.
“Obviously we’ll be going into the game with a lot confidence, having won three of our last four games, and a victory would set us up nicely for the important game against relegation threatened Bradford & Bingley the following week.
“We are taking no chances and putting out as strong a side as possible tomorrow. At this stage of the season there are very often some curious results with teams beating sides you wouldn’t expect. I don’t want ours to be one of them!”
