New Bradford captain Scott Moore believes last week’s narrow defeat against Hull KR will prove to be a turning point in the Bulls’ season.
Moore will skipper the team for first time at Dewsbury on Sunday and is hoping to lead the Bulls to a much-needed victory.
“We made a huge difference in our defence – we had much more of a willingness and eagerness to play, so we intend to carry that form on from last week and have a good display at Dewsbury,” Moore told the club’s official website.
“I think we have been asking for a good performance for the last couple of weeks but we have been falling short.
“It’s no secret we’ve suffered heavy defeats in the occasional games, but I think that we turned a corner last week.
“The mood has been pretty much the same, everyone has been joking around a bit and still relaxed. We all have a bit of belief back that we can knock a few performances together and stay up, so it has been a good place to be around this week.
“Confidence goes a long way in sport – hopefully we turned a corner and the lads can believe that we can do it and that we can play well.
“If they maintain the thought that we can play like that against the top team in the comp, then there is no reason we can’t this week.
“We have to stay calm, we can’t panic. We have a long way to go in the season – there is about 16 games left, so as I say, we just need to get to that zero then begin to climb the table, so there is no need for panic just yet.”
