GIANTS chief Jon Sharp could stick with the same 17 as his struggling side look for a major Super League lift against Warrington in Cardiff on Saturday.
Sunday’s 28-20 defeat at Hull left Huddersfield second-bottom of Super League.
That was their sixth defeat in their last eight top-flight starts.
Sharp could be tempted to make changes in a bid to find a winning formula.
He has back rower Stuart Jones (the 18th man at Hull) and Shane Elford, who played for the reserves (report Page 39), waiting in the wings.
And the Galpharm chief hasn’t ruled out captain Chris Thorman making a return after he missed Sunday’s game with a dead leg.
But with all 17 players in action at Hull having emerged unscathed, neither has Sharp ruled out naming an unchanged side for the Millennium Magic encounter, which kicks-off the six-match extravaganza at 6.00.
“I don’t think there was anyone at Hull who didn’t play well,” said Sharp.
“The problem at the weekend was once again the slow start we made. That’s the main thing we need to fix.
“We did finish the game strongly. We won the second half 12-10 and had chances to win the game.
“But after going 18 points down after half an hour we ended up giving ourselves too much to do.
“Hopefully, the slow start is something we can rectify against Warrington this weekend.
“If we start well and also start taking the chances we are creating, then we’ll get back on track.
“I know this bunch of players has the ability to turn it around, and I’m confident that they will.
“There would be no better time to do that than on such a big stage as this weekend’s.”
