Huddersfield have announced two changes to their 19-man squad for the Super League clash against Wigan Warriors on Saturday.

Luke O'Donnell had his contract terminated in the week, while Anthony Mullally and Jacob Fairbanks will be hoping for a place on the bench.

Aaron Murphy is set to come in and replace Luke George on the wing.

Shaun Lunt is set to start at hooker after his man-of-the-match display against London Broncos last time out.

Wigan have named Dominic Crosby in the squad as Paul Prescott is still out after failing to make the game against Warrington last Friday.

The game could be won or lost in the battle of the half-backs, which is set to pit Giants' Luke Robinson and Danny Brough up against Blake Green and Matty Smith of the Warriors.

Warriors head coach Shaun Wane is expecting a tough game against the unbeaten Giants and told the club's official website: "We face another challenge this weekend against Huddersfield who have obviously gone big through the middle, like Warrington they have some really big players who run hard, we are expecting a really physical game.

"It is obvious which way Paul Anderson has gone with his recruitment and this is a real challenge and we need to compete for 80 minutes, I have the players to do it and if we defend with the type of desire we showed last weekend we will be ok.

"I am expecting a really tight game and a bit of an arm wrestle and these are the type of games I want us to play in, it is great for Super League."

Huddersfield squad: Grix, Cudjoe, Wardle, McGillvary, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Lunt, Kopczak, Ferres, Faiumu, Patrick, Chan, Ta'ai, Murphy, Cording, Fairbank, Mullally, Fielden.

Wigan squad: Burke, Charnley, Crosby, Dudson, Farrell, Flower, Gelling, Goulding, Green, Hughes, McIlorum, Mossop, O'Loughlin, Powell, Richards, Smith, Taylor, Thornley, S Tomkins.
