BUSY Giants coach Jon Sharp has admitted his policy of taking `one game at a time' has been scrapped ahead of Friday's home Super League clash against Salford (7.30).

With Huddersfield travelling to Wakefield on Easter Monday (3.30), Sharp knows his squad will be tested to the full.

And although his attentions will be focused on the City Reds on Good Friday, he admits the trip to Wakefield will be at the back of his mind.

"The Easter period is always a very demanding time, and this year is no exception," said Sharp, who is again able to report his players are in good condition following Sunday's win over Wigan.

"Because of the quick turnaround I've already started putting a gameplan in place for the Wakefield match, because I have no choice.

"As soon as the Salford game is over, we're straight back in to prepare for Wakefield. There's no time to rest.

"The only consolation is that the other clubs in Super League are in the same boat."

But Sharp is also keen for his players not to lose sight of the fact that their sole priority is Salford.

Huddersfield start the contest as clear favourites to triumph, something that has made Sharp wary.

"Friday is a big one," he added.

"Salford showed at Bradford on Friday night that they are a well-coached side who will provide us with a massive challenge.

"They will be full of confidence after putting up such a good show at Odsal when they were unlucky to lose 25-18.

"They also had the advantage of playing on Friday, while we had to wait until Sunday.

"So you would think Salford may be a little fresher. I just hope that doesn't prove the case."

Meanwhile, Brandon Costin will be the guest speaker at the Senior Giants meeting at Fartown Supporters Club tomorrow (2.15).

And the Flyers are keen to stress that Tony Iredale Travel will be closed on Friday and unable to take coach bookings for the Challenge Cup semi-final trip to Warrington.

GIANTS general manager Richard Thewlis has admitted he has never witnessed a scene quite like it outside the Giants McAlpine ticket office this morning. Tickets for Huddersfield's Powergen Challenge Cup semi-final clash against St Helens at Warrington's new Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sunday, April 25 (3.15) went on sale at 10am this morning. By 11am over 300 fans were waiting in the queue, suggesting the club's initial allocation of 4,500 tickets will be snapped up quickly.
