Hull KR will be out to cement their place in the top eight when they go head-to-head with the high-flying Huddersfield Giants on Friday night at New Craven Park.
The Giants are one of Super League's form teams having won three on the bounce since losing at home to Warrington while the Rovers returned to winning ways against Bradford last time out.
Hull KR, who are level on points with the Bulls, currently occupy the final play-off position while the Giants are second in the standings three points adrift of leaders Wigan.
Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock brings Sam Latus and Jason Netherton into his 19-man squad but looks certain to stick with the team that beat Bradford. Forward Cory Paterson completes his four-match suspension with this game.
Hull's assistant coach Chris Chester is pin-pointed Huddersfield's Danny Brough as the danger man and insists they have a game plan to attempt to nullify his attacking threat.
"Danny is the key," he told the Hull Daily Mail. "We have to somehow negate his kicking game. If we do that, we'll go a long way to winning, but that's easier said than done.
"I watched the game against St Helens and he's kicking on the second and third tackle. It's pretty hard to defend against and our back three have a big job on their hands as he will turn us around a lot.
"It will be difficult but we have to make sure we pressure him from the inside whenever he does get the ball. We have to make him kick early and to places he doesn't want to kick to."
Huddersfield keep the side that beat St Helens just four days ago as they look to complete the double. Forward Jason Chan is their only injury absentee.
Leroy Cudjoe has been named in Steve McNamara's England squad to face the Exiles next week, however, the Giants centre is fully-focused on Friday's trip east along the M62.
"It's great to be picked in the England squad again, and hopefully I'll get the nod to play," he told the club's official website.
"But before I can think about that there's another massive Super League game for us at Hull KR. It's always a tough place to go, and because of the short turn-around there's not been much chance to think about England.
"As soon as we'd beaten Saints on Monday night, it was a case of getting straight down to preparations for tomorrow. All our focus has been on that.
"We know if we perform like we can, there's no reason why we can't go there and win. That's what we've been working towards this week."
Hull KR: Salter, Brown, Walker, Netherton, Tuimavave, Cox, Mika, Burns, Horne, Withers, Hall, Paea, Hodgson, Lovegrove, Dobson, Latus, Eden, Beaumont, Hodgson
Huddersfield Giants: Grix, Cudjoe, Wardle, McGillvary, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Lunt, Kopczak, Ferres, Faiumu, Lawrence, Patrick, Ta'ai, Murphy, Cording, Ferguson, Mullally, Dwyer
