AN unwanted Giants record could be equalled tonight.
If Halifax are beaten at home to Bradford Bulls in tonight's Super League clash it will be their 17th successive defeat.
Huddersfield Giants hold the record, having twice lost 17 matches on the trot spread over two seasons.
The Giants lost their last 13 matches in 1998 and the first four of 1999 before beating Hull Sharks 26-12 at home.
Then in 2000 Huddersfield lost their last two matches followed by the first 15 in 2001 before drawing 22-22 at home to London Broncos, making it a record 18 Super League matches without a win.
The unsuccessful run ended in Huddersfield's next match when they won 38-22 at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.
Halifax's last win was 26-22 at London Broncos in the first round of Super League on 23 February.
Bradford will be without international trio Stuart Fielden, Robbie Paul and Karl Pratt, in addition to Michael Withers.
Halifax welcome back former Giant Heath Cruckshank, who missed last week's defeat at Castleford through illness.
The Tigers, meanwhile, entertain St Helens at The Jungle tonight, with coach Graham Steadman backing stand-off Danny Orr to produce a big finish to the season - despite losing the captaincy.
The 25-year-old Orr has rejected a new contract offer from the Tigers and will spend the weekend deciding whether to join Wigan or Hull from the start of next season.
Orr will hand over the captaincy to former Huddersfield man Ryan Hudson, who also took charge of Yorkshire last month.
Wigan, who are looking to bounce back from their shock defeat at Huddersfield, give a first start to Kiwi prop Quentin Pongia following the loss of Craig Smith and Danny Sculthorpe for tonight's visit of Wakefield.
