Huddersfield Giants have made four changes to their squad ahead of Sunday's Super League Clash against Warrington Wolves at the John Smith's Stadium.

20-year-old Ben Blackmore and 17-year-old Kruise Leeming are both included in Paul Anderson's 19-man squad for the first time.

With David Faiumu unavailable through injury and Brad Dwyer ineligible to play, young winger Blackmore gets the nod as well as hooker Leeming.

Jason Chan returns from injury to join the squad alongside prop Anthony Mullally as Joe Wardle and Brett Ferres miss out as Anderson looks to make progress up the table.

"We have an opportunity to get two points and keep ourselves in the position we want to be," the coach told the club's official site.

"Of course we want to be in the top one, but at the moment we are in the top two."

Meanwhile, Warrington Wolves coach Tony Smith has named just one change to the 19-man squad which beat Bradford Bull 32-4 last time out.

The lone switch sees Ben Harrison left out of the squad with Rhys Williams coming in as his replacement.

Only three points separate the two in the Super League standing with Huddersfield holding onto second place with 20 points.

"I don't think we're so worried about putting pressure on them in terms of positions in the table," former Huddersfield full-back Brett Hodgson told Warrington's official website.

"I think it's more important we go there and try to play as best we can and keep on improving on what was a pretty good performance against Bradford on the weekend."

The Wolves have won the last five meetings between the two side but Huddersfield enter Sunday's clash on the back of four successive victories.

Huddersfield: Grix, Cudjoe, McGillvary, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Lunt, Kopczak, Lawrence, Patrick, Chan, Ta'ai, Murphy, Cording, Ferguson, Mullally, Dawson, Blackmore, Leeming.

Warrington: Atkins, D. Bridge, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Grix, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, M. Monaghan, J. Monaghan, Myler, Ratchford, G. Riley, C. Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Williams, Wood.
