Huddersfield v B'mouth preview

Huddersfield defender Alex Bruce could make his debut for the club.
Bruce, a recent loan signing from Leeds, was an unused substitute in Town’s last match, a 2-0 defeat at Charlton.
Striker Jon Parkin, another recent loan signing from Cardiff, is hoping to make his first home league appearance for the Terriers after making his debut at Charlton in place of the suspended Alan Lee, who will sit out the second of a three-match ban.
Manager Lee Clark has no other new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make any unforced changes as his side look to bounce back from their first league defeat in 44 games at Charlton.
Goalkeeper Alex Smithies remains a long-term absentee following knee surgery.
Town, who set a new Football League record of 43 games unbeaten last month, are currently in third place in the table, a point behind second-placed Sheffield Wednesday and eight adrift of leaders Charlton.
Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury faces a selection dilemma.
Bradbury welcomes Shaun Cooper and Shaun McDonald (groin) back into contention after the midfield duo recovered from their respective knocks, and the Cherries boss has no new injury worries ahead of the trip to the Terriers.
Midfielder Joe Partington remains sidelined with a back problem, while defender Mathieu Baudry is out with a hamstring niggle and both players are not expected to return to first-team action for a fortnight.
On-loan full-back Nathan Byrne has resumed light running following surgery on an ankle tendon injury, but the Tottenham youngster will not be involved in first-team affairs until the new year at the earliest.
The Cherries return north to the scene of their heart-breaking penalty shoot-out defeat in last season’s play-off semi-final.
