Huddersfield v Plymouth preview

Huddersfield’s teenage striker Benik Afobe faces a race to be fit in time to face Plymouth.
Afobe, on loan from Arsenal, is set to extend his stay until the end of the season but is still struggling with the knee injury that forced him to miss the weekend FA Cup win over Dover.
Town manager Lee Clark, up against his old Sunderland boss Peter Reid, has no new injury or suspension problems.
Clark named an unchanged starting line-up against Dover and could field the same side again.
Defender Gary Naysmith (foot) and midfielders Theo Robinson and Damien Johnson (both knee) remain sidelined.
Huddersfield have taken only four points from their last four league matches.
Plymouth boss Peter Reid is again likely to be without 13-goal top scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips.
The former Manchester City and Southampton man, who is League One’s top scorer this season, missed the 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth because the club did not want to risk him getting injured ahead of a potential sale.
The striker’s contract is up at the end of the season and with the current transfer embargo preventing contract negotiations, the club cannot afford to see the player injured.
The Pilgrims could make changes to the starting line-up and defender Karl Duguid and utility man Jim Paterson could replace Kari Arnason and Joe Mason if Reid decides to abandon the 4-2-3-1 formation in favour of a more traditional 4-4-2 against the Terriers.
