Featherstone coach Daryl Powell has praised his side's "huge effort" after they shocked Super League side Castleford in the Challenge Cup.

Fev beat Tigers 23-16 on Saturday to book their place in round five.

"It was a huge, huge effort from everyone concerned. I'm delighted for the players, the coaching staff and everyone involved with the club," Powell told BBC Radio Leeds.

"I couldn't be happier. It was a win based on a number of components."

He added: "It's a local derby and Castleford will find it tough to swallow but for us it was a pretty special day."

The Championship side will find out who they face in the fifth-round draw at 1500 BST on Monday.
