Wakefield now look forward to hosting Castleford Tigers next week in a winner takes all match.
The Tigers looked to be in control as they took a 14-4 lead with tries from Luke Dyer and Danny Sculthorpe and three goals from Danny Brough. However, Daley Williams hit back before half-time and scores from Luke Robinson, Andy Coley and David Hodgson after the break sealed victory for the Reds.
Castleford must now avoid defeat next week at Wakefield to avoid the drop.
Robbie Paul touched down to give the Giants an early lead before Justin Murphy replied for the hosts. However, Chris Nero and Stuart Donlan then put Huddersfield on course for victory with further tries.
Julien Rinaldi crossed to give the hosts late hope, but Martin Aspinwall secured the Giants' win to keep them in Super League.
St Helens lifted the League Leaders Shield with a ten-try destruction of the Leeds Rhinos at Knowsley Road.
The game was over as a contest by half time as the hosts lead 30-0, inspired by the brilliant Jamie Lyon, who claimed a hat-trick in the opening 26 minutes. In the second half Saints scored four more tries. Leeds did manage three consolations from Clinton Toopi and a brace for Scott Donald.

The hosts had a 21-12 lead at the break, thanks to tries from Solomon Haumono, Luke Dorn and Lee Hopkins. Wigan, with Bryan Fletcher scoring a hat-trick, fought back and made Quins hold on in a nervy finale after Michael Dobson brought them within a point.

Hull, who came into this game knowing they could not finish any lower than second place, trailed 14-2 at the break thanks to Warrington tries from Richie Barnett and Chris Bridge.
Gareth Raynor scored to cut the gap for the Black and Whites, but Stuart Reardon's superb last-ditch tackling and Ben Westwood's try kept the Wolves in control.
Motu Tony gave the visitors hope, but Lee Briers' interception effort made the game safe for Warrington and confirms their play off place.
