Raiders won't take wounded Titans lightly

CANBERRA is wary of a wounded Gold Coast, beset by an injury crisis.

Winger Anthony Don and centre Konrad Hurrell are set to make their return at Cbus Super Stadium tomorrow but 10 front-line Titans will remain sidelined, including Nathan Peats, Jarryd Hayne and now Nathaniel Peteru (foot).

The Raiders are 0-2 from two trips to Queensland this season, after suffering losses in Townsville and Brisbane, and are expecting another tough battle on the Glitter Strip.

"Just on the way the Titans play their footy in general, whether they're full strength or not, they're always a tough side and they tend to hang in there," Raiders captain Jarrod Croker said. "We're expecting the same thing on Saturday night."

But Croker said the side was trying to focus on its own game and replicating the football that allowed them dominate Parramatta last week.

"For us it's about worrying about ourselves and what we can control," he said. "If we play our best footy we know we're going to be in most matches."
