Bradford head coach Geoff Toovey believes the Bulls can start looking up after finally wiping out their 12 point deduction over the weekend.
The Bulls cruised to a 47-12 victory over Oldham to reach zero points for the season and Toovey says the result is a turning point in the push for survival.
“It’s great to finally be at ground zero, it’s been a long time coming,” he told the club’s official website.
“It was probably about eight weeks ago when we played Oldham for the first time and we could have pushed to zero if we won that game, so it’s a bit ironic that we got the win and finally got the zero.
“We had been hanging around this minus two for what seems like an eternity, so to finally get it off our backs gives us a huge boost to the club and the players – we are a bit of a confident side.
“When things are going right we can play some great football, but as soon as things go against us we drop off and I think that’s happened a little in the final ten minutes. But we managed to score a couple late tries to seal the victory.
“Obviously, it is a very tough task being in the position that we are in and the odds have been against us, but we are willing to accept the challenge and I think we are capable of getting there.
“It will be difficult but we believe that now we are at zero, it is possible.”
