Huddersfield manager Lee Clark has the luxury of a full-strength squad to choose from for the visit of promotion rivals Swindon.

The Terriers are just two points adrift of the League One play-off places and will be desperate for victory at the Galpharm Stadium against fifth-placed Swindon.

Midfielder Michael Collins returned from a twisted ankle to play 70 minutes of Tuesday's goalless draw with Brighton and is pushing for a place in the starting line-up.

Striker Jordan Rhodes was dropped to the substitute's bench on Tuesday after Clark admitted that he had looked jaded.

However the Terriers' top-scorer came on just after the hour mark at the Withdean Stadium and is expected to return to the side on Saturday.

Swindon could hand a debut to new loan signing Matt Ritchie.

The winger arrived on loan from Portsmouth on Thursday in a deal until the end of the season and will be hoping for an early chance to shine.

But whether manager Danny Wilson opts to make changes to his attacking options - who have helped the club to a run of just one defeat in their last 15 league games - is a different matter.

Fellow new boy Vincent Pericard has been unable to break the red-hot strike partnership of Billy Paynter and Charlie Austin and, despite his recent return from a hamstring injury, is again expected to be on the bench.

Goalkeeper Phil Smith started Tuesday`s 4-2 win over Oldham after David Lucas suffered a recurrence of his groin problem and he remains a doubt ahead of the trip to the Galpharm Stadium.

Defender Alan Sheehan (hamstring) is still on the sidelines.
