Huddersfield manager Lee Clark will select his starting XI from an unchanged squad for the home clash with Bristol Rovers.

Clark has no new injury or suspension troubles as his side look to bounce back from successive defeats which have seen the Terriers slip from top to eighth place in the table.

Winger Gary Roberts has had his broken arm pinned this week and will be sidelined for at least six weeks but Scott Arfield overcame a bruised calf to to play the full 90 minutes in the midweek defeat at Rochdale and is expected to continue.

Central defender Nathan Clarke is edging closer to his return to first-team action after damaging knee ligaments during the close season.

The 26-year-old came through a 70-minute run-out with the reserves this week and is hoping to feature in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Peterborough on Tuesday.

Bristol Rovers boss Paul Trollope has doubts over Gary Sawyer and Jeff Hughes ahead of his side's game at Huddersfield.

Defender Sawyer is struggling with knee and ankle problems both picked up in a strong challenge late on in Tuesday's disappointing 1-0 home defeat by Tranmere and will face a late fitness test.

Midfielder Hughes took a heavy knock on his ankle in the same game and will be again given until the last minute to prove he can take part.

If the pair fail to make it youngsters Wayne Brown and James Tunnicliffe will be battling out for their places along with Dominic Blizzard.

The Pirates were unbeaten in four prior to their midweek defeat and will look to get back to winning ways against the Terriers, but will find it difficult as Town are unbeaten at home so far this season.
