Anderson delighted with win

Paul Anderson: Confident

We're confident of making the play-offs. We've just competed against a top three side and know that when we do what we're good at we've a chance against anybody.

Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson insists the Giants can still make the Super League play-offs after securing his first win since taking over last month.

Anderson, who was assistant to departed boss Nathan Brown, saw his side end a run of five successive league and cup defeats with a stylish 36-18 victory over Catalan Dragons.

"We're confident of making the play-offs," he said. "We've just competed against a top three side and know that when we do what we're good at we've a chance against anybody.

"Just getting a win was the key and I'm delighted with that. But I was disappointed by the last 20 minutes as it got a bit scrappy."

Anderson said he and newly-installed assistant Kieron Purtill had worked on some things in midweek which the players had taken on board.

He added: "It's hard to single anyone out as the collective played well in both offence and defence, which is something we can't say we've done in recent games."

But he said if any player had to be singled out, it should be substitute David Fa'alogo as he came in as a late replacement for the injured Larne Patrick.

Anderson said of Fa'alogo: "He had a good game. He was due to be 18th man and deserves credit for preparing himself to play."

Catalan coach Trent Robinson, who was only able to bring back a few of the 10 players missing from last week's win over London, was disappointed by his team's efforts.

"We've had two low-energy performances now," he said. "We missed the start last week and missed it again this time.

"The work ethic's been down and the players are going to have to work hard to make sure this is just a two-week blip.

"We improved after the break and we know we can play that sort of footie. But it was the lack of work ethic at the start that was the hardest thing to swallow."
