GIANTS coach Jon Sharp sends his full-strength Super League side into battle against Wigan at the McAlpine on Sunday (3.00) confident of seeing his players rise to the occasion.
Huddersfield's display in their last top-flight home clash against Bradford Bulls two weeks ago showed they are capable of competing against the best sides in the competition.
They were eventually beaten 20-6, although Bulls coach Brian Noble admitted the contest could have gone either way.
And now Sharp has set his sights on doing even better against a Wigan side lacking the services of several first-choice players.
"We set a high standard in the game against the Bulls, and we have to keep that against Wigan," said Sharp.
"If we do, we'll go okay."
The Giants, meanwhile, have announced Challenge Cup semi-final tickets will go on sale at the McAlpine from next Tuesday (10am) for season ticket holders only.
They will be entitled to up to four tickets each, with the remainder going on general sale on Thursday.
Tickets are available for the tie against St Helens at the Halliwell Jones Stadium for side-on seating (£18 adults, £10 concessions), side-on standing (£14 and £7) and behind-the-posts seating (£14 and £8).
"Early indications suggest the initial demand will be exceptionally high," said Giants general manager Richard Thewlis, who has stressed season-ticket holders must bring their booklets when purchasing their semi-final tickets.
"So the advice is obvious. Get down here for 10am on Tuesday morning to avoid any disappointment."
