Coach Ian Millward pleaded with Castleford fans to keep the faith after his side were outplayed by fellow Super League strugglers Widnes.

The Tigers, without suspended star man Rangi Chase, slumped to a 40-10 defeat against a Vikings side who started the match at the foot of the table.

It was their fifth defeat in six in the league and Millward said: "What I will say to the fans is to hang in there. I'm not here to dwell on anyone who is out or who has gone for operations.

"We are in a position at the moment and I have faith that we will get out of it. We had a completion rate of 26%.

"It's a simple game, you don't have the ball you are not going to score.

"We just didn't give ourselves a chance. That's for me to work out why that is."

Vikings boss Denis Betts was on cloud nine after claiming the club's fourth win of the season which sees them move off the bottom, above London.

He said: "The players were fantastic. The lads really have been great this month. They have taken a lot of stick and the resilience and toughness is coming through.

"The players deserve it - we knew these days were going to come. All credit to the lads, there were too many to name who were great for us."
