Huddersfield manager Lee Clark could hand home debuts to recent signings Krystian Pearce, Dean Heffernan, Neal Trotman and Nathan Eccleston against Carlisle.

Clark will also be boosted by the return of midfielders Michael Collins and Antony Pilkington, who both missed last weekend's win at Yeovil through minor injury.

Theo Robinson could return to contention after being omitted last week due to disciplinary reasons.

Australian defender Heffernan, on-loan Preston centre-half Trotman and striker Eccleston, on loan from Liverpool, all made their first appearances for the Terriers at Yeovil.

Eccleston, who scored the winner on his debut, was forced off with a gashed knee, which later required stitches, but he is expected to be available as Clark's play-off chasing side look to extend their unbeaten league run to five matches.

Striker Scott Dobie returns to contention for Carlisle following suspension.

Dobie returns from a three-game ban, but fellow forwards Joe Anyinsah and Gary Madine remain doubtful.

Anyinsah is struggling with a stomach/groin problem and Madine missed the midweek defeat at Colchester due to illness.

New loan signing Darryl Duffy, from Bristol Rovers, made his full debut at Colchester and is expected to retain his place up front.

Ben Marshall, also a deadline day loan signing from Stoke, was a second-half substitute and will hope to feature again.

David Raven (hip), Andy Cook (foot) and Gavin Rothery (double hernia) remain long-term absentees, while Richard Offiong, Marc Bridge-Wilkinson and Tom Taiwo are all pushing for a return to manager Greg Abbott's starting line-up.
