Halifax coach Karl Harrison is forced into making at least one change to his starting line-up after second-row forward Dane Manning was given a 10-match ban earlier this week.
Manning was found guilty of grade E intentional striking and grade D sustained punching, and received five-match suspensions for each offence.
The news comes as a further blow to Harrison, whose side is already struggling with injuries. Gareth Potts (broken ankle) is the latest to be sidelined.
Harrison said: “We’ve so many people out at the moment, but that’s rugby league and that’s why you’ve got a squad.”
Talbot has called for his team to increase their concentration for the trip to the Shay.
Talbot said: “At the minute we’re making far too many errors with and without the ball, and we’re getting punished for them.
