If there's a team that's going to have a buzz around them heading into 2021, it's the Titans.

A bright finish to 2020 and a host of big-name arrivals will have coach Justin Holbrook and his players feeling good about themselves.

But before thoughts turn to next year they will want to finish 2020 with another win which would equal the club record of five in a row.

The Knights - a team playing for a home final - will know they need to be on their game to get the victory.

The rundown

Team news

Titans: The Titans are 1-17. Brian Kelly is set to return from an ankle injury at centre with Treymain Spry shifting to wing and Corey Thompson in the reserves following a hamstring complaint. Hooker Mitch Rein (head knock) and forward Jai Arrow (groin) are named and expected to play.

Nathan Peats (calf) was named among the reserves but cut from the squad 24 hours before kick-off along with Thompson.

Darius Farmer and Phillip Sami were the last two players cut an hour before kick-off.

The Titans are aiming to equal a club-record five consecutive wins.

Knights: The Knights are 1-17. Coach Adam O'Brien has confirmed centre Bradman Best will return from an ankle injury after seven weeks out.

"We've missed Bradman. He certainly gives the team some confidence when you've got him out wide," O'Brien said. "As the boys call him, he's a beast. [We're] really fortunate. He's worked really hard to get back and I'm looking forward to seeing him perform."

Winger Edrick Lee will also return after missing last week for personal reasons, while Kurt Mann is back from suspension at hooker, bumping Chris Randall to the pine and Phoenix Crossland out.

Sione Mata'utia will start in the back row with Lachlan Fitzgibbon (leg) injured and Brodie Jones called up to the interchange. Mann has scored six tries in six games against the Titans.

Starford To'a and Jirah Momoisea were omitted from the reserves 24 hours before kick-off. Josh King and Gehamat Shibasaki were cut an hour before kick-off.

Key match-up

Moeaki Fotuaika v David Klemmer. "Big Mo" has been one of the most improved players in the NRL this year. He has reached a level of consistency that all coaches want from the front-rowers. A meeting with the NSW and Australia regular will provide another opportunity for him to prove his worth

Stat attack

For all the great things the Titans have done of late, there are still a couple of areas in which they need to improve. They have made more errors and missed more tackles than any other side in the competition.
