Yeovil's Luke Ayling will be available, despite pleading guilty to a Football Association charge relating to his dismissal against Stevenage last weekend.

Ayling was sent off for deliberate handball that denied an almost certain goal during the 0-0 draw, banned for the midweek clash with Leyton Orient and handed an FA rap - which he has since accepted.

But the panel deciding on what measures should be taken against the full-back will not meet until next week, meaning the former Arsenal youngster is set to feature against the Terriers.

Meanwhile, manager Terry Skiverton has a plethora of injuries to contend with as he prepares his side to face the high-flying Terriers.

Striker Jon Obika is still 10 days away from resuming light training due to a knee problem and is unlikely to return to the first team until Christmas, while midfielder Gavin Williams (knee) forward Andy Williams (ankle) and striker Steve MacLean also remain sidelined.

Paul Huntington (dislocated finger) is still a fortnight away from a comeback and to make matters worse for the Glovers, utility man Max Ehmer is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season during the 2-2 draw with Orient.

Huddersfield defender Calum Woods is expected to return to the squad for the game, but midfielder Oscar Gobern is doubtful.

Woods sat out the midweek draw at Scunthorpe through suspension after picking up his fifth booking of the season last Saturday, so Gary Naysmith filled in at left-back.

Manager Lee Clark must decide whether to retain Naysmith or recall Woods to his starting line-up.

Gobern is rated 50/50 after turning his ankle in training earlier this week.

Winger Danny Ward and striker Lee Novak are pushing for recalls after stepping off the substitutes' bench in the last two matches, while leading scorer Jordan Rhodes is hoping to score in his seventh successive match after firing 14 goals in his last six appearances.

The Terriers will extend their record unbeaten league run to 41 matches if they avoid defeat.
