Huddersfield Giants centre Jordan Turner is convinced his side can down Wigan when the two teams meet in the Super 8s on Friday.

The Giants areĀ 12/5 to come out on top, while hosts Wigan areĀ 1/3 to claim the win.

Both the Warriors and Huddersfield need a victory to keep their top four hopes alive and Turner is anticipating a fierce contest at the SW Stadium.

"I think every game is a tough game this season. Wigan are always Wigan. It's probably one of the hardest places to go, I've been there a few times and it really is a tough place to go," he said, as reported by Huddersfield's official website.

"They're in a similar situation to us, it's do or die. They need to win just as much as us so I think it's going to be as good as ever playing against Wigan this week."

The Giants have Michael Lawrence back in the side for the first time since February, while prop Sam Rapira misses out with a rib injury.

Wigan make one change as hooker Sam Powell returns to the squad after missing their defeat by Leeds through suspension with Josh Ganson making way.
