Lee Clark is not expected to make any changes to his Huddersfield side for their derby clash with Leeds.

Town, who are unbeaten in their last 10 games, won 2-0 at Tranmere on Tuesday night to maintain the pressure they are putting on the top two, one of whom are Simon Grayson`s side.

Defender Lee Peltier showed no effects of the foot injury he suffered at Hartlepool last weekend against Tranmere and will be involved again, while Theo Robinson will have to settle for a spot on the bench as Clark looks to maintain his unbeaten record against Leeds.

Town beat their West Yorkshire rivals 1-0 at the Galpharm a year ago, while they drew 2-2 at Elland Road in December.

Bradley Johnson could earn a recall to the Leeds side.

The left-sided midfielder was on the bench for Tuesday's 2-0 win over Oldham but may replace Aidy White in Simon Grayson's side.

White was withdrawn from the Oldham game owing to his ongoing battle with cramp and manager Simon Grayson may decide not to risk him in such a high-profile game.

Luciano Becchio is certain to retain his place alongside Jermaine Beckford in attack after his two-goal salvo against Oldham, while Leigh Bromby and Neil Kilkenny should again have to settle for a place on the bench.

Ben Parker and Tresor Kandol are training again after injury but will not be involved, with goalkeeper Shane Higgs the only long-term absentee.
