Bulls were docked six points in February after falling into administration, but a 20-12 victory over Wakefield on Sunday moved them into positive points territory for the first time this season.
The outcome of their appeal is expected to be revealed on Wednesday but Hunter-Paul has urged his side to keep their eye on the ball.
He told Sky Sports News: "It would be great for it to be just completely black and white and they said you can have all your points back - actually here have some more points because we think you've been treated unfairly - but that's not going to happen.
"We can't fret about it. We've basically just got to get on with the job. The one thing we do have control of is what happens here on the field and I think that's got to be the major focus for the club at this point in time."
The stakes are high for Bulls, who are in the relegation zone following the deduction, but Hunter-Paul is confident the appeals panel will rule in his side's favour.
He said: "Obviously there is a confidence that we have got otherwise we wouldn't have taken it to the appeals panel in the first place and we're hopeful that we're going to get some sort of ruling that is going to go in our favour.
"If it doesn't happen we've just got to carry on with what we're doing.
"Again that is fully out of our control. The governing body has got nothing to do with it. It purely and simply comes down to the appeals panel and the decision that they make and we will abide by that."
