Huddersfield Giants will be looking to maintain their fine form when they come up against local rivals Bradford Bulls at the Magic Weekend on Sunday.
Paul Anderson's Giants are starting to show the form that saw them crowned League Leaders' Shield winners last season following a run of four straight league wins.
The Bulls had been showing signs of life themselves recently, although an emphatic 50-0 home defeat to St Helens last time out has halted their progress.
The defeat means the relegation-threatened Bulls are eight points behind third-from-bottom behind Wakefield Wildcats with 12 games of Super League played.
Brett Ferres returns to the Giants' 19-man squad following a five-game suspension for a dangerous tackle on Jonny Lomax. Scott Grix also returns.
The pair are back in place of winger Jermaine McGillvary and Jake Connor who were both injured in the 30-16 win against London Broncos last weekend.
"Bradford are dangerous and they're wounded at the moment. Obviously they've played well in some games and not so well in others," Anderson told the club's official website.
"What they managed to do last time is turn an 80 point loss into a big win so hopefully we're going to arrest that trend, as we don't want them to turn a 50 point loss into a win against us this weekend."
Bradford's vice-captain Luke Gale is in-line to make his return this weekend after missing their defeat to Saints with a hamstring injury.
Back-rower James Donaldson is also back in contention, having shaken off an ankle injury which has kept him sidelined for the past three weeks.
Young hooker Nathan Conroy has also been included, though prop Manase Manuokafoa (hamstring) misses out.
Huddersfield Giants: Grix, Cudjoe, Wardle, Murphy, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Lunt, Kopczak, Ferres, Chan, Bailey, Lawrence, Patrick, Faiumu, Ta'ai, Wood, Broughton, Mullally
Bradford Bulls: Addy, Arundel, Conroy, Diskin, Donaldson, Foster, Gale, Gaskell, Luke George, Henry, Kear, O'Brien, Olbison, Mellor, Pitts, Purtell, Sidlow, Walker, Wood.
