Huddersfield head coach Paul Anderson has admitted he is 'not fussed' that the Warrington board picked his side in the Super League play-off semi-finals after Sunday's Club Call.

Anderson, who was critical of the three-day wait to discover his side's semi-final opponents, has already seen his side beaten three times by the Wolves this year.

And when asked if he had a slight inclination that the Warrington board were going to choose Huddersfield, he told Sky Sports: "Not really, but we've got a challenge now.

"Warrington feel they can beat us so they we have to try and challenge them and try and match them.

"They obviously feel they can beat us so we've got to knuckle down and prepare for Thursday."

The table-topping Giants thrashed Hull FC 76-18 to reach the play-off last four and Anderson feels his players will be fresh for their next challenge next week.

"Yes, we came through the game pretty well and obviously the thing from last Thursday was to get a win and be in this position now, so we're happy with that," he added.

"We knew we had to leave the John Smith's Stadium and come to Wigan or Warrington so there's no real surprises.

"We have to come here (Halliwell Jones Stadium) on Thursday and we have got to play well to win."

The winners will face either Wigan or Leeds in the Grand Final at Old Trafford on Saturday October 5.
