VIKINGS have reached ground zero - and their first mission since having 12 points docked for going into administration.

And on-song Jack Owens says it is now a case of looking up table.

And he believes a particular focus will come with the ‘four-pointers’ against the Championship’s top sides.

Owens said: “That is what we have been aiming for since that horrible couple of weeks.

“Game by game is the old cliche, but when we were on -8 it was a case of getting to zero points as quick as we could.

“We have done that now and can start looking up the table, rather than chasing it.

“It is something we spoke about as a team - and a need to set our standards.

“All we can do now is carry on knocking off those wins and when we play the likes of Toulouse, Toronto, Featherstone and Sheffield, who are going to be in and around the mix, is go out there and beat them.

“They are four-point games for us now and the roll that we are on, we are looking forward to playing them, they are not looking forward to playing us.

“We get a cup game this week, which is probably the best time for us as it will help us iron out a few things and then get ready for Batley away, which is always a tough game.”

Vikings’ attention turns to the Coral Challenge Cup on Sunday ­— and they face League 1 side Oldham RLFC in the fourth round.

The tie has been switched to the Bower Fold home of Stalybridge Celtic (3pm) to cope with the demand.

Vikings will be looking to make progress into the next round where the winners from this round will be joined by Super League quartet Leeds, London, Hull KR and Salford.

Although Vikings will have another bite at the Wembley cherry, with the 1895 Cup, they will have their eyes set on some potential money-spinning ties beyond round four.

Vikings have won six of their opening seven and will take a big following to Oldham.
