Nathan Clarke could return to Huddersfield's squad for the first time this season against Peterborough.

The 26-year-old defender, yet to appear for the Terriers due to knee ligament damage sustained during pre-season, is expected to return to the substitutes' bench.

Town will be without suspended defender Jamie McCombe, who sits out a one-game ban after receiving two yellow cards in Saturday's home defeat to Bristol Rovers.

Goalkeeper Alex Smithies and midfielder Scott Arfield are on international duty for England and Scotland Under-21s respectively.

Manager Lee Clark has no other new injury or suspension problems, but long-term absentees Tom Clarke (knee), Gary Naysmith (foot) and Gary Roberts (broken arm) remain sidelined.

Peterborough have a doubt over Tommy Rowe ahead of their Johnstone's Paint Trophy northern section second-round trip to Huddersfield.

Former Stockport winger Rowe - who has been playing at full-back this season - came off at half-time in Saturday's 1-0 win at Carlisle nursing a groin injury and is unlikely to be risked.

Seth Nana Ofori-Twumasi could well return to Posh's starting line-up as manager Gary Johnson contemplates making changes.

Midfielder Lee Frecklington returned from a knee injury as a late substitute at Carlisle and could start, but captain Grant McCann remains out.

McCann would be serving the second of a three-match ban but is now away on international duty with Northern Ireland in any case.

That leaves record signing Ryan Bennett and midfielder James Wesolowski (both knee) as the only injury victims at London Road.

The match kicks off at 7pm.
