JON SHARP believes his Giants are ready to pass their first screen test of the season.
Huddersfield travel to Wakefield tonight (6.05) still smarting from their 36-20 Super League XI defeat at Wigan eight days ago.
The cold snap means there will be a pitch inspection this afternoon to make sure the ground is not frozen.
But if the game gets the go-ahead, Sharp is confident his side will put on a quality show in front of the Sky TV cameras.
"The way the boys have responded to the Wigan performance last Friday has been extremely positive," said Sharp.
"They've been working harder than ever this week and are keen to get back out there and show everyone what a good team they are.
"There is no better way to do this than in front of the television cameras.
"It's their big chance to show a wider audience just how strong a Super League side we are.
"After the disappointment of our first-half display at Wigan, this is the chance to go out there and prove a point."
Sharp has now finalised his 18-man squad, with Stuart Donlan and Jon Grayshon the unlucky pair to miss out.
This means Sharp could name the same 17 for a fourth successive game, although positional chances can't be ruled out.
One expected switch is at hooker where Brad Drew is ready to return after starting the game at Wigan on the bench.
But the Galpharm chief is keeping any potential tactical switches to himself.
"We always look at ways in which we can improve the team's performance," said Sharp.
"Obviously, we need to show a marked improvement from the Wigan game and that's what we will be striving to achieve.
"We're confident we've come up with a winning formula for tonight's contest."
Both clubs are now keeping a close eye on the weather as kick-off approaches.
The big freeze has already caused the postponement of several sporting fixtures this weekend, with tonight's game in some doubt.
Wakefield fans were this morning helping club staff remove covers from the pitch which have been laid to protect the playing surface from the cold.
