Huddersfield manager Lee Clark is waiting to learn whether defender Lee Peltier will miss the cup tie.

Peltier sat out the midweek win over MK Dons due to a knee problem and Jamie McCombe is expected to retain his place if he fails to recover in time.

Otherwise, Clark has no new injury or suspension problems as his side look to progress to the third round of the competition.

Striker Lee Novak (hamstring), defender Gary Naysmith (foot) and midfielder Tom Clarke (knee) remain sidelined.

Town, who overcame Cambridge in a first-round replay, bounced back from successive league defeats in midweek with a convincing 4-1 win over MK Dons and Clark will be reluctant to make changes.

Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson has failed in his attempt to bolster his squad with a loan signing ahead of the clash.

With a number of players still absent through injury, Simpson was hoping to land a youngster on loan from a Premier League club but a move did not materialise before the 5pm deadline on Thursday.

Striker Ricky Sappleton remains sidelined with a knee problem and defender Shaun Brisley is out until January with a hip injury.

Defender Carl Tremarco could play but will be sidelined for four months from next week when he will undergo an operation on his hip.

On-loan Everton defender Aristote Nsiala is a doubt with a groin problem but midfielder Hamza Bencherif should be passed fit after starting from the bench with an ankle injury in Tuesday's home defeat to Cheltenham.
