UPBEAT Giants coach Tony Smith is hoping to welcome back up to four players for tomorrow's Super League clash at basement club Halifax (7.45).
Busy scrum half Paul March is still sidelined with a rib cartilage injury picked up at Bradford Bulls.
But Steve McNamara (calf), Brandon Costin (shoulder), Eorl Crabtree (thumb) and Matthew Whittaker (ankle) could all come into contention as the Giants seek a ninth win of the campaign to keep their play-off hopes alive.
The quality quartet were undergoing fitness tests today after missing the 30-30 draw against Widnes.
All 17 players who faced the Vikings came through that match unscathed, meaning Smith could be able field his strongest side for several weeks.
"Hopefully, we're getting over the worst of our injury patch," said Smith.
"We know that Halifax will be desperate to beat us, because we've only just edged past them in our two earlier encounters.
"We're ignoring their position at the foot of the table and need to be at our best to beat them.
"That task will be greatly improved if I can get some more bodies back on the park."
Injuries and the loss of players to other clubs - full-back Daryl Cardiss joined Warrington yesterday - have hampered Halifax all season.
