GIANTS coach Jon Sharp is backing fit-again Brandon Costin to lead the side to Super League success at London Broncos on Sunday (3.00).
Huddersfield head to the capital as favourites to secure a seventh win of the top-flight campaign.
That tag has been strengthened with the news that Costin is fit to play after suffering a hamstring injury in the first minute of the Giants' 20-0 defeat to Hull in their last outing a fortnight ago.
And with winger Marcus St Hilaire returning after missing the last two games with a calf injury and full-back Paul Reilly recovering from a badly bruised jaw, the Yorkshiremen will be travelling with confidence.
All three will have key roles to play, although Sharp has singled out Costin as the potential matchwinner.
"The inital fear when Brandon picked up the injury was that he could be out for up to three weeks," revealed Sharp.
"But he responded exceptionally well to treatment last week and then had the luxury of a free weekend.
"As a result, he came back to training on Monday and was sharper than I've seen him all year.
"That bodes well for Sunday, and hopefully for the remainder of the season as well.
"Brandon is obviously one of our key players and I'm looking at him to provide us with a solid platform this weekend.
"We may go into the game as favourites, which is a reflection of the way we have started the season.
"But even though London have been struggling, we are still aware we are in for a very tough challenge and all our main players need to be on the top of our game.
"If not, it could become a real struggle."
The Broncos have made a far from convincing start to their campaign, with three wins from their opening 11 games.
Their latest defeat was a bitterly disappointing 30-12 reverse at fellow strugglers Salford.
But Sharp believes that could make the Broncos more dangerous.
"That result will have hurt them," added the McAlpine chief.
"They will be keen to put things right this weekend and they have the players capable of making that happen.
"Everyone is well aware of the attacking threat from Dennis Moran and forward presence of the likes of Steele Retchless.
"If we are guilty of any level of complacency, they'll hurt us."
London welcome back fit-again trio Mark O'Halloran, Rob Jackson and John Kirkpatrick, but prop Mitchell Stringer is serving a one-match ban.
