Huddersfield manager Lee Clark will pick his starting line-up for the home clash with Southend from a fully-fit squad.

Clark, unlikely to make too many changes from the side that lost 2-0 at West Brom in the FA Cup last time out, has no new injury or suspension problems.

Danny Drinkwater, on loan from Manchester United, striker Theo Robinson and midfielder Tom Clarke were all second-half substitutes against West Brom and are pushing hard for a place in Clark's starting XI.

Goalkeeper Matt Glennon completed his switch to Bradford this week after being released by the Terriers, so Simon Eastwood could come into the squad as back-up for first choice Alex Smithies.

Huddersfield have lost only two of their last 10 league games and are unbeaten at the Galpharm Stadium this season.

Southend goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall will return to the starting line-up after he missed the last two matches due to hip and pelvis problems, but will replace Ian Joyce at the Galpharm Stadium.

Defender Osei Sankofa is expected to make his first start for four months after long-term injury and he will step in for Sean Morrison, who has returned to Swindon following the end of his loan spell.

Jean-Yves M'Voto will be involved after his loan spell from Sunderland was extended and Simon Francis is in contention after recently turning down a move to Peterborough.

Steve Tilson's side, nine points off the top six, have won two and lost two of their last four league matches.
