Super League is back this week following the Tetley’s Challenge Cup final break and there is all to play for with only one point separating the second and sixth-place club.
Warrington are currently fourth and while the Giants are in sixth spot they are level on points with Tony Smith’s men with 32.
The Wolves have an excellent recent record against their West Yorkshire opponents, winning their last six in the league while also toppling them in last season’s playoffs on home soil.
With just three rounds of the Super League season remaining defeat is almost certain to end the losing team’s prospects of piping St Helens to the League Leaders’ Shield.
Scrum-half Richie Myler is set to return for Warrington after being dropped for their last game while Gene Ormsby is set to return on the wing, with Joel Monaghan switching to centre in place of the injured Chris Bridge (hamstring).
Second rower Ben Currie is back in the frame but there is still no place for out-of-form prop Roy Asotasi.
Huddersfield have centre Leroy Cudjoe back after a three-match absence with a hip injury - Aaron Murphy is set to revert to the wing - and utility forward David Faiumu is also back in contention.
Warrington Wolves: Atkins, Currie, England, R. Evans, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Laithwaite, J. Monaghan, M. Monaghan, Myler, O'Brien, Ormsby, Ratchford, Russell, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.
Huddersfield Giants: Grix, McGillvary, Cudjoe, Wardle, Murphy, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Lunt, Kopczak, Ferres, Bailey, Lawrence, Patrick, Faiumu, Ta'ai, Broughton, Kaufusi, Mullally.
