A good luck message from a fan inspired the Bulls to a dramatic 28-27 comeback victory over Wigan Warriors at the JJB Stadium last night.

An outstanding performance from skipper Jamie Peacock triggered an amazing finale as the Bulls crossed for three tries in the final 11 minutes to overcome a 15-point deficit.

And Peacock revealed it was a card from a fan that helped the side rediscover their self-belief to snap Wigan's 19-month unbeaten streak at the JJB.

"I'd like to thank the fan that sent in that card," said Peacock.

"It was pretty special. We pinned it up in the dressing room. It was about team spirit, enthusiasm and commitment. The boys took a lot of that in.

"That's what we showed to come away with the win. She the fan might make a coach herself one day."

Loose forward Jamie Langley crossed in the first half but a David Vaealiki double and tries by Terry Newton and Kevin Brown put Wigan firmly in the box seat.

Stand-off Iestyn Harris kept the Bulls in the hunt with a try mid-way through the second half before Peacock started the comeback proper with a thunderous 69th-minute effort.

Robbie Paul then showcased his mercurial skills to create a fine try for Stuart Reardon before Mick Withers crossed from Harris's double-skip pass to allow Paul Deacon to coolly slot the match-winning conversion from a testing angle with just over 30 seconds left on the clock.

"The modern game is all about momentum and at the end it was all with us," said Peacock.

"It was all about being clinical enough to score the points.

"We are on the first step of the ladder back to where a club like this should be. We need to back this win up with a good performance against London next weekend, then we can talk about being back where we want to be.

"To come back the way we did showed a lot of commitment and team spirit and that is what a lot of people have been asking if we have. You can't give them a better answer than that. It was a pretty special effort."
