BRYAN HUGHES: Latest bonding session will be a huge help

It was good for our lads to have a break from it all on Saturday and enjoy a team-bonding day out.

From what I’ve seen on the group chats and on social media they have all had a good one, which is a huge positive because bonding sessions like that help you get through a tough season.

We had an Indian together as a squad just before the season got underway and immediately we got the points on the board to move us to the top of the league.

Hopefully, we’ll get a similar outcome after this latest one.

We now move into a busy period of four games in 10 days, after that I think we’ll have a much clearer idea of where we are.

You always set yourself targets during a season and at the moment we are averaging around two points a game, which is the sort of form that gets you promoted.

A few people seem to be on a bit of a downer after the past two results, but you still have to remember that we have had a good start to the season.

It is true what they say in football though, you are only as good as your last result.

But if you look at our performance at Ossett, it was possibly our best this season, we passed them off the park, but couldn’t make that breakthrough.

You are going to get games like that, which is something people will just have to accept. Maybe some people are being a bit naive in thinking that we will go out there and win every game.

The players deserve credit for what they have achieved so far and if we keep going with our current ratio of points to games then we’ll be in for a positive season.

Going into the Warrington game, the stats say that we have only scored one goal in our last three games, but I’m not worried by that at all.

We have a huge amount of experience in our attacking options, we know what they can do and we know that they will score goals.

Sometimes things don’t work out in games, but we are still a huge attacking threat and those goals will come.
