Scott Moore is relishing tonight’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Quarter-Final with Huddersfield Giants but has insisted that there is no added pressure on the side.

“It is going to be a massive game for the club and the fans, however we are just trying to treat it as any other game. The stakes are a little bit higher but essentially it is another game, we have been lucky enough to beat them twice this season and we are just treating it the same and hopefully come out on top again.” said Moore.

The Wildcats go into the fixture on the back of a disappointing defeat to Challenge Cup holders Leeds Rhinos last Friday night in the league; however Scott Moore doesn’t feel there is any need for the fans to be worried.

Moore continued, “I think we have been a bit up and down recently, we have lost a few games and not put in the best performance in certain areas so it is crucial we go out there and give everything we have got. We have come a long way since last season, if we can play to the standard we know we can, we can beat anybody.

“We are wary of the fact that Huddersfield will be more pumped for the game. You tend to find when teams change or sack their head coach there is a bit of a backlash, it has happened here and at other clubs as well. It has not been a great season for the Giants, so it will be a pinnacle point for them this year.

Trinity’s number 9 is no stranger to the cup having been to Wembley in 2009 with the Giants when they lost out to Warrington Wolves.

“I was a part of the Giants squad in 2009 to make Wembley but I have also been around the cup at my time with the St Helens squad. It is a great occasion and journey, it all happens so quick but hopefully we can get there.

“It would be a fantastic achievement if we made it to the final, especially after last year and the start to the season we had, everyone was writing us off to relegation. It is a long way off and there is a lot of work to do but it can happen.

“What it would mean for the fans as well, their support has been superb this year and hopefully they can come along to the game this evening in numbers and give us a massive boost. Be loud and proud and get behind the boys and hopefully we can repay them in return with a victory.”
