Huddersfield’s Danny Brough is eager to defeat Widnes on Friday to edge the Giants closer to a place in the Super 8s.
With just three games of the regular season to play Huddersfield are in eighth place, two points ahead of Catalan with Warrington a further point behind.
“It’s a tough challenge – we’ve got to win two of the last three games to be safe and we have to work really hard,” Brough told the club’s official website.
“Widnes have been good in their last three games against top sides so we’re under no illusions, we have to turn up. The pressure is on us to win the next two games to survive.
“Anybody can beat anybody on their day. I do know where we are in the table, but I’m just looking forward to hopefully putting on a good performance.
“I’m praying we do the job. It’s nerve wracking because you don’t know where your future lies – it puts pressure on you and your family.
“Hopefully dealing with the pressure last year we can move on and avoid the Middle 8s.
“I think it’s been a really up and down season. We had a poor start with a few injuries and the boys who’ve come in have done the best they can. We haven’t been consistent enough.
“I think we are where we deserve to be – borderline top eight is a fair result to where we are.
“We’ve started playing some decent rugby over the last ten weeks and although we didn’t get all the results in the first half of them, lately we’ve come good.”
