Castleford coach Daryl Powell wants his side to improve in the second half of the season and says they can be very dangerous in the run-in.
The Tigers ended a four game losing streak with a commanding 30-8 win at Leeds on Thursday night.
That lifted them up to third in the table, despite their indifferent form of late, albeit with Wakefield, Catalans and Hull all still to play this weekend and all level with Castleford on 16 points.
Powell said: “It was a pretty important win. We’d lost four in a row and I was a bit nervous before it.
“We played some great stuff in the second half, it was a game between two teams that really needed to win and thankfully we were good enough to get away from them.
“We’ve lost a couple of tight games this season, but we’re in the mix.
“We’ve just got to keep improving. Our second half of the season needs to be really positive.
“If we do that, we potentially could play our best rugby league at the end of the season when it’s the most important.
“If we can get the players back on the field at the same time, we could be very dangerous.”
Castleford face St Helens at Magic Weekend next Sunday, with Saints now 12 points clear of third place following their win over Salford on Friday night.
