Danny Brough previews tomorrow’s match against Widnes Vikings

Danny Brough spoke to about tomorrow’s 8pm match against Widnes Vikings at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The Giants sit 8th in the Betfred Super League whilst Widnes are 11th, but Brough is under no delusion to what their opponents can bring up in the vital clash:

“It’s a tough challenge.  We’ve got to win two of the last three games to be safe and we have to work really hard. Widnes have been good in their last three games against top sides so we’re under no illusions, we have to turn up. The pressure is on us to win the next two games to survive.

“Anybody can beat anybody on their day. I do know where we are in the table but I’m just looking forward to hopefully putting on a good performance tomorrow night.

“I’m praying we do the job. It’s nerve wracking because you don’t know where your future lies, it puts pressure on you and your family. Hopefully dealing with the pressure last year we can move on and avoid the Middle 8’s.”

Brough, who has played with a number of partners in the halves due to injuries, also spoke about his season from a personal point of view and the team as a whole:

“I think it’s been a really up and down season. We had a poor start with a few injuries and the boys who’ve come in have done the best they can. We haven’t been consistent enough.

“They’re all great kids when we partner up together and we train, we have people rolling in and out but injuries play a part. It’s part of the game but we can’t look for excuses, we just need to try and win our games.

“I think we are where we deserve to be, borderline top 8’s is a fair result to where we are. We’ve started playing some decent rugby over the last 10 weeks and although we didn’t get all the results in the first half of them, the lately we’ve come good.

“I think I’ve been fairly consistent. I try and do my best but I want to be challenging for trophies and we haven’t done that this year. Hopefully we can get in top 8 and have a good end to the season.  I feel fresh and play most games so I feel like I have a lot to give.”
