FORMER Giants star Paul March believes his old club will turn their Super League season around - but not tonight!
The 27-year-old is ready to take to the field with Wakefield at the Galpharm (8.00) for the first time since his winter move back to Belle Vue.
March admits he will be feeling nervous facing the side he represented with honour for five seasons.
And although he would be delighted to see the Giants start winning again after losing their opening seven top-flight fixtures, March is desperate to thwart them tonight.
"I've got a lot of good friends at Huddersfield and I always got on well with the fans," he said.
"So, I hope they're nice to me, because I'm really looking forward to seeing them all.
"But I also hope they don't hold it against me when I say I'll be doing everything possible to help Wakefield get that win to help us cement a top-six place.
"At the end of the day, I'm a professional paid by Wakefield and getting us another win is the only thing on my mind.
"But I do hope Huddersfield start winning pretty soon, which I know they will.
"Of course, I was bitterly disappointed to be told last season I could look for another club, because I would have loved to have stayed.
"But I don't hold it against anyone at the club. It's just part and parcel of rugby league.
"I suppose there was a slight doubt that I may never be the same player again after I had to undergo a major knee reconstruction last season.
"But I returned ahead of schedule on Boxing Day and I feel as strong as ever."
Giants fans will see for themselves tonight, with March expected to start on the bench with the anticipated return from injury of Jamie Rooney (thigh).
And he knows the Wildcats will need to be at their very best to guarantee his side secures their sixth win from eight starts.
"As I've said, I'm sure it won't be long before the Giants start picking up the wins," he added.
"Their squad is far too good to keep on losing, and we know that if we don't play to our best, they'll get that first win against us.
"We've got to do whatever it takes to make sure that doesn't happen."
