Castleford Tigers’ boss Daryl Powell has urged his team to bounce back quickly from last Monday’s defeat at St Helens.
The Tigers travel to Hull on Sunday on the back of their 26-22 loss against Saints and Powell admitted some of his players dropped their performance levels over Easter.
“It’s a tough period, no question, but it’s doable,” Powell told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“We’ve not picked up too many injuries – I keep touching wood – and we are okay and in a good place.
“Obviously it was disappointing on Monday, coming up against a Saints team who were desperate to win.
“Hopefully we’ll get back on track this week, but it will be a tough game at Hull.
“They’ve had a couple of hiccups at home where they’ve conceded big scores, so I imagine they’ll be desperate to play well there on Sunday.
“But we let ourselves down, particularly in the first-half on Monday, and we need to respond.”
