DETERMINED Giants coach Tony Smith believes it's pay-back time against Widnes Vikings!
The two clubs go head to head for the third time this season in a McAlpine Super League clash on Sunday (5.30) which will have a big bearing on the race for a play-off spot.
Smith is still smarting from the games against Widnes earlier in the season when the Giants threw away leads on both occasions.
At the Halton Stadium in May, Huddersfield led with 10 minutes remaining before falling to a 42-30 defeat.
Then at the McAlpine last month, Smith saw his side fail to hold on to a commanding half-time advantage and had to settle for a 30-30 draw.
And the Australian is determined to see his side avoid any repeat this weekend.
"We're up against a team we haven't beaten this year, and that hurts," said Smith.
"In both games we've let leads slip and paid a heavy price.
"Those lost three points have had a big impact on our standing in the League ladder, and we want to put things right this weekend.
"I'm sure that if we can perform to the best of our ability we'll get the right result."
Smith will be taking a late check on the fitness of Jarrod O'Doherty, who picked up a hamstring strain at Castleford a week ago.
The signs suggest the Australian back-rower will pass a late test and start his 26th game of the season, meaning Smith will pick from an 18-man squad.
Opponents Widnes, meanwhile, will be looking to win for the first time this season without injured star man Jules O'Neill, who has undergone minor knee surgery.
But whichever side he fields, Vikings coach Neil Kelly is expecting a tough test.
"Huddersfield have a reputation as one of the hardest sides to beat," he said.
"They have proved this year they can beat anyone on their home turf."
