Here is everything you need to know about the game.

Kick-off time and TV Channel

The game kicks off at 19:45.

There is no live TV coverage but BBC will show highlights on the Super League Show.

Team News

There is still no Jake Connor meanwhile Kevin Naiqama has dropped out after scoring against Warrington Wolves on debut.

Watson will have a decision to make in the halves again between Olly Russell and Will Pryce.

This comes after the news that the game would go ahead after fears of a cancellation.

The playing surface at the Be Well Support Stadium was inspected today, and the clubs have agreed that the match should go ahead. Monitoring of the surface will continue over the coming weeks.

That’s good news, but in bad news for Wakefield, fullback Max Jowitt is an obvious absence from the 21-man squad and it comes following reports from the Yorkshire Post that the full-back could be set for a spell on the side-lines.

It’s a huge miss for a side that is coming offย  a 60-0 loss in which Lee Gaskell deputised at full-back.

Gaskell is once again named and could therefore again take that role with new signing Samisoni Langi shifting into the halves again.

Jordy Crowther returns into the line-up and all four new signings also feature, but Trinity will face a tough task against Huddersfield.

The Giants loss their first game of the season last week meaning Ian Watson’s men will be out for a bounce back win and it could simply pile more misery onto Trinity.
