Huddersfield winger Danny Ward could return to the squad.

Ward missed Town's last league game against MK Dons and was doubtful for Saturday's postponed game at Leyton Orient due to an ankle injury.

Lee Clark's side will be without skipper Peter Clarke as he recovers from surgery to repair a double hernia, so Jamie McCombe is likely to resume his partnership with Sean Morrison, on loan from Reading, in central defence.

Winger Gary Roberts had a similar operation at the end of last month, but has so far only missed two matches and is already closing in on a return to first-team action.

Goalkeeper Alex Smithies is expected to continue on the substitutes' bench following his recovery from a long-term knee injury, while strikers Lee Novak and Alan Lee, midfielders Damien Johnson, Anton Robinson and Joey Gudjonsson and defenders Nathan and Tom Clarke, Antony Kay and Calum Woods are all pushing for a return to the starting line-up.

Town currently trail second-placed Sheffield United by a single point, but the Blades have a game in hand.

Sheffield United midfielder Lee Williamson is doubtful.

Williamson is struggling with the calf injury that forced him out of Saturday's home win over Wycombe.

Ryan Flynn stepped off the substitutes' bench at the weekend and is likely to start if Williamson fails to make it.

Manager Danny Wilson has no new injury or suspension problems, but striker James Beattie will serve the last game of his three-match ban.

Recent signing Will Hoskins is pushing for his full debut after stepping off the bench on Saturday to score the Blades' opening goal in a 3-0 win.

Richard Cresswell has partnered leading goalscorer Ched Evans in recent weeks and Wilson must decide whether to hand Hoskins a starting role.
