TRIUMPHANT Giants coach Jon Sharp fears he may be about to face a major selection headache.
All 17 Huddersfield heroes who helped beat Wigan 26-24 in Friday's dramatic Super League clash at the JJB are expected to be fit to face Widnes at the Halton Stadium on Sunday (3.00).
Those obviously include Stanley Gene, who suffered a recurrence of a knee injury as Huddersfield secured a first League double over Wigan for 64 years.
But with England full-back Paul Reilly (hand) and first-choice centre James Evans (thumb) closing in on their returns and Paul White, Mick Slicker and Iain Morrison also available after missing out against the Warriors, Sharp is aware he has some tough choices ahead of him.
"I could be about to face one of my toughest coaching challenges!" admitted Sharp, whose side were 18-0 down at one stage on Friday.
"Paul Reilly and James Evans are not too far away from playing again now, and it's possible they may get the all-clear in time to be considered against Widnes this weekend.
"It's going to be touch and go, but if they do it's going to make my job of selecting a side to go to Widnes extremely difficult.
"Both men are obviously key players in our squad and it's been disappointing not to have them available.
"But those that took their places at Wigan on Friday night didn't do too badly, did they?
"This is a time when it can be really testing being a coach, although it's clearly far more desirable than having to scratch around for a team when half the squad are injured."
