This is a huge game at the bottom of the table and could potentially be a season-defining night for both sides. Widnes sit four points away from eighth-placed Salford whilst Huddersfield are a point further back. The loser of this game might leave themselves too much to do in order to avoid the Middle 8s but the winner may be able to kick-start their season and mount a challenge for the Super 8s. Huddersfield will be buoyed by the announcement of a new head coach but with him not arriving in the country until next week that may have a negligible effect. Despite Widnes not managing an away win all season, they gave a good account of themselves at home to Wigan last week and can win this one against an injury-ravaged Huddersfield.
