St Helens overcame the 52nd minute sending off of Morgan Knowles to hold on and defeat Catalans in their last outing.
Knowles misses out for Saints as he begins a four-match ban following his red card in the South of France. Matty Lees comes into the squad in his place.
Saints have began the season well with Ben Barba looking like he has rediscovered his best form. They will look to him once again to create try-scoring opportunities as they attempt to score 21 points or more for the sixth game running.
Huddersfield Giants have lost 5 of their last 6 Super League matches
St Helens have won 5 of their last 6 Super League matches
There has been a total of 290 points scored in the last 6 Super League meetings between the two sides at an average of 48.3 per game
There has been a total of 52 tries scored in the last 6 Super League meetings between the two sides at an average of 8.7 per game
St Helens have scored 21 points or more in their last 5 Super League matches
Huddersfield Giants have conceded 36 points or more in 4 of their last 5 Super League matches
Huddersfield won their first game in six when beating Warrington in their previous game and will hope another home fixture can see them notch another win but face a tough test against a St Helens side that have began the season in impressive fashion. Huddersfield’s defence has been a real problem stretching back into last season and with Saints’ attacking prowess, they will struggle to win back-to-back games with the away side having too much in their arsenal.
