Carlisle manager Greg Abbott is expected to choose his side for the northern area semi-final clash with Huddersfield from an unchanged squad.

The Cumbrians will be without striker Gary Madine, who sealed his move for an undisclosed fee to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and was left out of Abbott's squad for the home win over Bristol Rovers.

Mike Grella has returned to parent club Leeds and so Craig Curran is expected to continue up front alongside Francois Zoko.

Liam Cooper, who scored on his debut for the Cumbrians at the weekend after joining last week on loan from Hull, should retain his place in the back four, but Danny Livesey is back in contention.

Central defender Livesey, sidelined for all bar one game this season due to a groin injury, returned to the bench on Saturday and could feature at some stage.

Huddersfield could hand a late fitness test to Tamas Kadar for the first leg against Carlisle.

Defender Kadar, who has started both Town's games since arriving on a month's loan from Newcastle last week, was forced out of Saturday's win at Walsall just before half-time with a hamstring strain.

Kadar was replaced by Liam Ridehalgh, who is expected to start if the Hungary international fails to make it.

Terriers manager Lee Clark, who has no other new injury or suspension problems, could be tempted to start up front with Jordan Rhodes, who struck his 16th goal of the season after stepping off the bench at Walsall, and half-time substitute Gary Roberts.
