Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson will select his side from an unchanged squad.

Club skipper Peter Clarke and midfielder Tommy Miller both remain sidelined as they continue to recover from respective hernia operations, but Grayson has no new injury or suspension worries.

Alan Lee made way for returning striker Jordan Rhodes for Saturday's 3-3 draw at Bury, and the latter promptly struck his 31st and 32nd goals of the season after missing out last Tuesday due to Scotland Under-21s commitments.

Rhodes is expected to continue alongside Lee Novak up front for Town, but Grayson may consider some changes after seeing his side surrender a three-goal lead at the weekend.

Defender Calum Woods, midfielder Oscar Gobern and winger Gary Roberts all stepped off the substitutes' bench at the weekend and are pushing for a place in the starting line-up.

Huddersfield have drawn their last two matches and trail second-placed Sheffield United by five points.

Hartlepool will be without Gary Liddle, Luke James and new loan signing Samuel Asjei.

Midfielder Liddle is still struggling with the calf injury that has kept him out of the last three matches and teenager James has failed to shake off a back injury after missing the last two games.

Fellow striker Asjei has returned to parent club Newcastle after sustaining a hamstring injury on his debut for Pools, a 1-1 draw with MK Dons on Saturday.

Another forward, James Poole, replaced by Asjei early in the second half against the Dons, will be in contention after returning to the side for the first time in over two months at the weekend following a hamstring problem.

Pools are currently in ninth place, seven points adrift of a play-off spot.
