Castleford Tigers star Adam Milner is keen to put up a good show in tomorrow night’s game against Warrington Wolves after describing the club’s last display against them as “embarrassing”.

The Tigers were beaten 44-6 by Tony Smith’s men in the last round of Super League before the Super Eights and are determined to perform better when back at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle for a game both sides see as must-win if they are to advance to the play-offs.

Victory for Cas would keep them at least level with fourth-placed Huddersfield Giants while defeat for the Wolves would leave them with a mountain to climb to reach the top four as they would be six points behind.

Tigers hooker Milner said: “They are not easy games at this time of year, but we owe them one from the last time we played them. That was quite embarrassing.

“It was the same when we played Hull - they knocked us out of the Challenge Cup and beat us in the league - so we are looking for the same sort of response.

“We can’t take them lightly. They will come back firing after they were beaten by Leeds last week, so it is another massive game for us.”

Milner reckons Cas will have to improve on their display against Hull FC last week, but would settle for another scrappy victory.

He added: “At this time of year it doesn’t matter how we win it, we’ve just got to get the two points.

“We did it tough (against Hull), but the main thing is we came away with the points. They are all must-win games at this stage of the season.”
