Danny Cadamarteri could make his first home appearance for Huddersfield following his return in the second leg of the northern area final with Carlisle.

Striker Cadamarteri joined Dundee United from Town in the summer, but has returned to the club following his release from the Scottish club and made his second debut in Saturday's win at Exeter.

Town, beaten 4-0 in the first leg at Brunton Park three weeks ago, have no new injury or suspension problems.

But goalkeeper Alex Smithies (knee), defenders Tamas Kadar (hamstring) and Liam Ridehalgh (glandular fever), midfielders Tom Clarke (ankle) and Damien Johnson (knee) and strikers Jordan Rhodes (ankle) and Benik Afobe (knee) are all still sidelined.

Carlisle could be without skipper Paul Thirlwell and on-loan defenders Joe Dudgeon and Liam Cooper at Huddersfield.

The Cumbrians are leading 4-0 from the first leg at Brunton Park three weeks ago, but midfielder Thirlwell (calf), Manchester United youngster Dudgeon (knee) and Sunderland teenager Cooper (hand) are all expected to be sidelined.

Ben Marshall, on loan from Stoke, has fractured a bone in his hand, but is currently able to play, while fellow striker Rory Loy, a permanent signing from Rangers, could make his first start for the club after stepping off the bench to make his debut in Saturday's home defeat to Walsall.

Deadline-day signing Paddy Madden, from Bohemians, also made his debut as a second-half substitute on Saturday and is expected to feature again.
