Castleford head coach Daryl Powell has insisted that the spirit is still good in his squad, despite a frustrating opening to the Super League season.
The Tigers have suffered three close defeats so far, but the players are staying positive, according to Powell.
“The players have reacted well,” Powell told his club’s official website.
“There’s no sulking or moping about. We are pretty positive and we are trying to get ourselves the two points, I think we have been really unlucky so far in lots of ways.
“I think we’ve done some good things, whilst not being at our best, and we probably should have picked points up in all three games.
“Whilst it is disappointing that’s the life at the top at the sharp edge at times. We’ve lost some tight games and we have tough games ahead and we need to rise to the challenge and hopefully get the job done this week.
“Friday night v Wigan is a huge game for us, away to Catalan and away to Saints are both such tough games, but my message to fans would be to just stick behind us.
“We can’t work any harder, everyone here is working so hard and with your support we’ll get the job done. We all need to stick together.”
