Huddersfield defender Gary Naysmith could return to the starting line-up.

Scotland international Naysmith has spent most of the season battling injury, missing five months due to a foot problem and then missing out more recently with a calf problem after returning in February.

New loan signing Danny Ward, from Bolton, is hoping to make his first start for the club after stepping off the bench in the midweek win at Brentford, but manager Lee Clark has leading goalscorer Jordan Rhodes, on-loan Arsenal teenager Benik Afobe, Lee Novak, Danny Cadamarteri and Alan Lee to choose from up front.

Winger Anthony Pilkington (ankle/leg) and midfielder Damien Johnson (knee) are out for the rest of the season, while defender Antony Kay is recovering from ankle ligament damage.

Defender Lee Peltier will sit out the final game of his four-match ban.

Swindon boss Paul Hart has received plenty of positive injury news.

The struggling Robins welcome back goalkeeper David Lucas who has missed the last two matches due to an arm infection. He will now fight it out with Phil Smith for the nod from Hart.

Full-back Alan Sheehan was struggling with a tight hamstring during last weekend's 1-1 draw with Dagenham but managed to continue and is okay to feature at the Galpharm Stadium.

Centre-back Scott Cuthbert, who took a knock to his eye/cheekbone, should also make it, although he will still see a specialist next week.

New loan signing Alassane N'Diaye is in the squad travelling to Yorkshire although he is lacking match sharpness and may not yet be considered ready to start.

Striker Vincent Pericard has had an operation on his troublesome knee injury and, despite remaining on the sidelines, could be back in training next week.
