Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson says the Giants can take a lot of positives from their five-point loss to Wigan but they have to do better.
The Giants fielded a young side with a host of first-teamers out. They went close to pulling off the win until Wigan got the final try with just four minutes left.
“Performance-wise I can’t question anything we did tonight,” Anderson told Sky TV post match.
“I just thought when we got in the position to win the game we just didn’t quite get there. Wigan’s experience got them home in the end.
“Our committment and effort was very good. We spoke all week about the future of this club and it’s been there tonight.
“The game was always going to get us, especially the first half with the number of tackle four and five penalties we gave away.
“By just being a bit loose in the ruck, which is something we can improve on. It robbed us of a bit of energy at the end but it is what it is.”
Huddersfield face Widnes next and Anderson knows his team has to improve.
“We’ve got to take lots of positives but also we have to be disappointed as well. Because we’ve come so close but yet so far which, it would be easy to look at our current situation and say well done,” he said.
“But yeah it’s well done, but we have to do better.”
