Halifax ground out a win against Batley last week and coach Richard Marshall saw some good signs from his team.
“It was a tough game for both teams and realistically it could have gone either way,” he said.
“Getting the try just before half time gave us momentum and then it was scoreless in the second half, which you don’t usually see.
“That’s testament to both teams defensively but the last 15 minutes I thought was our best so far.
Looking ahead to this Sunday he said: “Featherstone will be smarting – that wouldn’t have been what they wanted or planned for at this stage of the season so they’ll have a point to prove. We want to carry on the momentum and string together back-to-back wins which we haven’t done yet.”
