Huddersfield Town Vs Charlton Athletic, Sat 28 Aug 2010

Published 1 Comments

Lee Clark is set to hand striker Alan Lee his Huddersfield debut against Charlton on Saturday.

The 32-year-old has joined the Terriers from Crystal Palace on a two-year deal on Wednesday and is set to make his bow at the Galpharm Stadium, having missed the 5-1 Carling Cup defeat to Everton due to being cup-tied.

However Clark has doubts over goalkeeper Alex Smithies and experienced defender Gary Naysmith after both picked up injuries at Goodison Park on Wednesday.

Smithies had to be withdrawn at half-time after suffering a dead leg following a collision with the post, while Naysmith came off after 67 minutes due to a toe problem.

Fellow defender Lee Peltier will definitely miss out as he serves a one-match ban following his dismissal against the Toffees.

Christian Dailly and Jose Semedo return to the Charlton squad.

Skipper Dailly, who sat out last weekend's draw against Oldham due to a one-match ban, is expected to replace Miguel Llera at centre-half.

Semedo has completed a three-game suspension and will challenge Alan McCormack and Therry Racon for a place in central midfield.

Boss Phil Parkinson therefore has an almost full-strength squad to choose from.

Youngster Alex Stavrinou is a slight doubt after picking up a knock to his knee in training, while Kelly Youga remains the only long-term absentee.

Left-back Youga is still trying to recover from the knee injury which has kept him out of action since last November.
