The Bulls travelled to Wigan and won 16-8, a result which was unexpected, to say the least, as well as Lowes’ first win in charge of the team.
“I am delighted for the players, they have worked extremely hard since I came in and I am absolutely over the moon for them,” he told his club’s official website.
“They were fantastic this afternoon and some of the stuff we have been trying in training came off.
“I thought we were pretty sound defensively, the boys were working hard for one another, which is what we have been practising.
“You have to believe in yourselves and effort behind the scenes in training builds that.
“We are aiming to finish the season on a high and want to produce more of the same in the weeks ahead, that starting on Friday night – at Leeds.”
Meanwhile, the Bulls have made another signing for next season, in the shape of current Salford player Jake Mullaney. Lowes is pleased that his plans for making a swift return to Super League are no taking shape.
“Jake is a real talent and we are looking forward to seeing what he will bring to the team,” the coach said.
“He has been set back by injuries this season, meaning consistency has been an issue for him.
“But I am sure he will knuckle down later this year, when the players start pre-season training, and prove his ability in a Bradford shirt.
“The squad is beginning to take shape but there is still a lot of work going on behind the scenes, as we look to piece things together for 2015 and beyond.
“As the club has already stated, we are hoping to have in place a quality team which will be able to challenge the teams placed in front of us next year.”
