Castleford Tigers will be hoping to maintain their remarkable home record against the Huddersfield Giants at the Wish Communications Stadium on Saturday.
Ian Millward's side will be aiming for a fifth consecutive Super League success over the high-flyers on home soil, a game that can be seen live on Sky Sports.
The Tigers crushed the Giants 52-6 in last season's corresponding fixture, a defeat Paul Anderson's Huddersfield side will be seeking to avenge this time around.
Millward has made several changes to his 19-man squad, who have won just one Super League match all season.
Ryan Boyle could be in line to make his second debut for the Tigers after he joined from Salford on an 18-month deal. He replaces Jake Emmitt who joined the City Reds as part of the same deal.
Lee Gilmour is included in the squad to face the side he joined the Tigers from, as are Richard Owen and Jamie Ellis who were missing for the visit to St Helens on Easter Monday.
Meanwhile, Justin Carney serves the first of his two-match suspension he was dealt for committing a Grade C, dangerous throw offence during the game against St Helens.
Jake Webster is missing with a knee injury that will be scanned next week before a definitive timescale can be put on his return.
Steve Nash and Kirk Dixon are omitted due to a calf injury and virus respectively while Grant Millington remains out with an ankle injury picked up in the match against Wakefield.
"The spirit off the field is good, the interaction between the players and staff is good," said Millward.
"The Friday result knocked our confidence; the performance was flat and we got knocked around the middle of the park.
"There a couple of key areas that we need to improve from the two Easter games and we need to improve them against Huddersfield."
Anderson has made two changes to his squad that brushed asides Widnes Vikings in their Easter Monday clash.
Stuart Fielden and Jacob Fairbank are recalled in replace of the suspended Eorl Crabtree and Ukuma Ta'ai.
"All I'm concerned about is making sure we prepare as well as we can to give ourselves the best possible chance of winning this game," Anderson told the Huddersfield Examiner on their poor recent record at Castleford.
"We're the Giants of 2013, and it's the here and now that counts for everything. We have to make sure we turn up with the right attitude and ensure we learn the lessons of that poor day at Salford a week ago."
Castleford Tigers squad: R Owen, M Shenton, R Chase, J Ellis, J Walker, D Clark, C Huby, L Gilmour, W Hauraki, A Milner, N Massey, O Holmes, J Thompson, J Tansey, D Fleming, J Clare, C Martin, K Mason, R Boyle
Huddersfield Giants squad: S Grix, L George, L Cudjoe, J Wardle, J McGillvary, D Brough, L Robinson, S Lunt, C Kopczak, B Ferres, D Faiumu, M Lawrence, L Patrick, A Murphy, J Cording, J Fairbank, D Ferguson, M Dawson, S Fielden
