Jamie Foster: Hull FC must step up a level to beat Warrington
JAMIE Foster admits Hull FC still need to lift their game to another level if they are to prevent their season ending at Warrington.
Hull face the Challenge Cup winners on Saturday for a place in the last-four of the play-offs, after crushing Huddersfield Giants.
The Black and Whites' 46-10 win was their first play-off success for five years, with the manner of victory raising hopes ahead of the trip to the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Foster is confident in FC's ability to go all the way to Old Trafford, and as a two-time losing Grand Finalist, the winger knows what it takes to get to the showpiece.

And he says another step up in class is demanded when heading into the Wolves' den.
"The aim was to give a team display against Huddersfield, we did that but we can't be complacent. We have to pick it up now because Sunday's performance won't be enough for Warrington," Foster told the Mail.
"We can pat ourselves on the back as much as we want but I was at the Warrington and Saints game at the weekend and Warrington played poorly. We'll get the backlash of that this week."
Foster took his personal points tally to over 100 for Hull at the weekend in just eight games since arriving on loan from St Helens – a side he won't be allowed to play against in the closing weeks of the season.
And should he make it to a third successive Grand Final, Foster says it will mean much more this year.
"Warrington will be confident and expect to win but maybe we can surprise a few people.
"This would be my third Grand Final if I can get there this year with Hull and if I do, this year will be my biggest achievement. For people on the outside it would be a massive shock, but I don't see why we can't."
