GIANTS chief Nathan Brown is planning to keep changes to a minimum so his players can right the wrongs of their home performance against Leeds Rhinos six days ago.
Third-placed Huddersfield travel to Super League strugglers Warrington Wolves on Sunday (3.00) desperate to get back on track after their 34-6 defeat at the hands of the reigning champions.
That was only the Giants’ third defeat in 10 top-flight starts under Brown.
And the head coach believes it would be wrong to start chopping and changing now on the back of one below-par performance.
"What we’ve found so far this season is that the side have been able to respond positively to the couple of losses we’ve suffered," said Brown.
"So, hopefully, it’ll be the same again this weekend.
"As usual, the guys’ attitude in training has been very good and that’s why they have generally been good on the competitive field.
"They seem determined to make up for last week’s disappointment, and that’s why there will be very few – if any – changes this weekend.
"We’ve still got a couple of training sessions between now and the game, and we’ll probably leave it as late as possible until finalising the side.
"I know how much Martin Aspinwall and Shaun Lunt want to play after missing out on final selection last weekend, but whether they’ll come back in remains to be seen at this stage."
Huddersfield head to the Halliwell Jones Stadium searching for an amazing 11 away wins on the trot, stretching back to last July.
But Brown doesn’t see the extending of that impressive record as the prime motivation to succeed this weekend.
"Getting back on track is the main aim on Sunday, and it wouldn’t matter if we were trying to achieve that at home or away," added Brown.
"To be honest, records such as this are something that I don’t really think about.
"I know some players, fans and the media like facts such as this.
"But it’s the way we perform that is the key for me."
Warrington head into Sunday’s clash on the back of an excellent 58-22 triumph at Bradford Bulls a week ago.
And they have now had a further boost with the news leading scorer Chris Hicks and forwards Louis Anderson and Paul Wood have agreed new deals.
Kiwi back rower Anderson has signed a two-year extension while Wood and Hicks have agreed new 12-month deals.
Wolves head of coaching Tony Smith said: "I am delighted with each of the boys who have extended their contracts.
"It shows the faith they have in the club and its future, which is what we are building towards."
