Carlisle boss Greg Abbott will be able call upon Graham Kavanagh when Huddersfield visit Brunton Park.

The experienced midfielder was rested for the weekend 5-0 demolition of MK Dons but will come back into contention against Lee Clark's men.

Left-back Evan Horwood also missed the weekend clash with a bruised foot and remains a doubt.

The Cumbrians will come up against Town for the second time in just 10 days following the postponement of the original clash on Boxing Day. In the reverse fixture points were shared in a 1-1 draw at the Galpharm Stadium on February 6.

Goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley will have to settle for a place on the bench once again following the fine form which has seen Adam Collin secure a regular first-team berth.

However, Abbott will definitely be without long-term injury absentees, David Raven (hip), Andy Cook (foot), and Gavin Rothery (double hernia).

Huddersfield manager Lee Clark is likely to keep faith with the same line-up that drew 2-2 against Swindon on Saturday.

Clark made four changes for the clash against the Robins with Jordan Rhodes, Lee Novak, Gary Roberts and Dean Heffernan replacing Robbie Williams, Daniel Drinkwater, Robbie Simpson and Nathan Eccleston.

The quartet should be named in the starting XI once again with Heffernan showing no ill-effects from a groin problem that saw him miss the midweek clash against Brighton.

Clark will also be able to call upon youngsters James Spencer and Spencer Harris after the pair completed loans spells at Northwich and Curzon Ashton respectively.

Town will come up against the Cumbrians for the second time in just 10 days following the postponement of the original clash on Boxing Day. In the reverse fixture the points were shared in a 1-1 draw at the Galpharm Stadium on February 6.

The Terriers are just four points adrift of the League One play-off places and will be desperate for victory.
