This Sunday sees Huddersfield face Widnes at the Stobart Stadium and Giants star Dale Ferguson believes it can be the start of another good run for the Claret and Gold.
Having seen their form dip in recent weeks, the Giants are looking to get back on track with a positive performance against the Super League's new boys, Widnes Vikings.
Ferguson himself knows about coming back from disappointment after having an injury plagued opening to the current campaign. He believes that the side is now in a place to push on again, but is aware that the Giants need to pick up their current level of gameplay after a mediocre performance at Magic Weekend.
"From start to finish we were pretty cold. We picked it up for the second half but we died off again. We have been through the video and we know what we need to correct. The boys are disappointed. We are going to push on this week and get training right and hopefully get the win this weekend," he said.
Even after defeat, he was highly complementary of the Magic Weekend, especially with it being in Manchester.
Dale commented "Overall it was a good day, apart from the result. It was a good weekend of rugby and it is good for the game to do that. I have played in all of them, and I probably prefer Manchester the most. The crowd is more on top of you and I believe there was a bigger crowd over the weekend."
The 24 year-old is pleased with how he has come back from injury and his return to fitness has been a bonus for the team.
"I have found a little bit of form after coming back and I just need to keep it now. I had a little bit of a slip up last weekend, but all the boys did so overall I think it has been alright," he said.
However, Ferguson is under no illusions that Widnes will roll over after their poor showing last weekend. He believes they could cause problems if the Giants are not on top of their game: "Last time they came here, they were pretty difficult to break down and they always seem to start both halves pretty strong. We also expect a big battle in the pack. Hopefully we can kill them off towards the end of the game."
Ferguson is also confident that the Giants can finish the season with some silverware to their name: "I believe we can go real far. That's the reason I joined Huddersfield Giants to win silverware and that's what I believe we can still do."
