Giants v City Reds: Teams
At Galpharm Stadium, Friday April 6, kick-off 3pm
Huddersfield Giants will be looking to maintain their impressive start to the new Stobart Super League season against Salford City Reds.
Nathan Brown's team moved to top of the table after last week's fine 22-12 success over champions Leeds Rhinos at Headingley Carnegie.
This week Brown has been confirmed at St Helens' new head coach from 2013, although the Australian tacticians focus is firmly on the task at hand with the Giants.
He has a strong squad to choose from for the visit of Salford after former Australian Test back-row forward Luke O'Donnell made a successful return from a knee injury against Leeds.
Captain Kevin Brown (ankle), Scotland international Dale Ferguson (knee) and utility back Aaron Murphy (knee) all trained with the full squad after recovering from injury.
Huddersfield were even able to afford allowing Keith Mason and Shaun Lunt to play for their Under-20s at Headingley.
"We head into the Easter period with more depth than at another other stage this season, which is clearly very encouraging," stated Brown.
Salford have winger Jodie Broughton back from a five-match absence with a double hernia.
Prop Shannon McPherson has recovered from a medial knee ligament injury which has forced him to sit out the last two games.
The City Reds secured a surprise win over Huddersfield last August having slipped to a heavy 52-22 defeat in last's corresponding fixture.
Huddersfield squad: Grix, Lawrence, Cudjoe, Gilmour, McGillvary, Brown, Brough, Crabtree, Robinson, O'Donnell, Fa'alogo, Faiumu, Patrick, Ferguson, Wardle, Chan, Lee, George, Eden.
Salford squad: Patten, Gibson, Gleeson, Moon, Broughton, Holdsworth, Smith, Jewitt, Anderson, James, Ashurst, Williams, Wild, Boyle, Adamson, Owen, Howarth, Paleaaesina, McPherson.
