Jamie Foster: Knows Sunday's clash with Wakefield is a 'must-win' game

Bradford Bulls winger Jamie Foster has labelled the club's Super League clash against Wakefield Wildcats as a 'must-win' encounter.

The Bulls have already claimed a 23-10 victory at Wakefield this term, but their six-point deduction for entering administration coupled with dreadful form means they are eight points adrift of the Wildcats.

Bradford suffered an 'embarrassing' 46-4 loss to Catalan Dragons according to head coach Francis Cummins and Foster, who endured a tough afternoon in the south of France, knows their performance was unacceptable.

"If we do not perform - and we do not win - then it would become a massive task to stay up. We have to play well, we have to perform. It is as simple as that."

With relegation a real possibility for the Bulls this season the 23-year-old knows anything other than a win on Sunday at Provident Stadium would almost certainly end in the drop.

"Sunday is going to be massive for us," the goal-kicking winger told the club's official website. "It is a must-win game for us as Wakefield are a team that we are looking to chase down.

"If we do not perform - and we do not win - then it would become a massive task to stay up. We have to play well, we have to perform. It is as simple as that.

Confidence

"We have to re-find the confidence we had going into the Warrington game, last month, and kick on from there.

"Every player in the squad genuinely believes we can avoid relegation. We cannot focus on anything other than the upcoming games. It is going to be very hard work from here, it is time to get our heads down.

"The clock is ticking and we have to get ourselves together. We are playing for everyone involved in the club, our families and our livelihoods. We just have to be positive and that starts this coming weekend.

"Things have been well and truly stacked against us this year but we just have to get on with the task at hand, regardless of what the critics are continuing to say. It is what it is and we have to adapt."

"We owe it to the board and, of course, our fantastic supporters. We fully intend to turn around our fortunes on Sunday and bounce back in style. We will respond."
