Huddersfield will be without suspended on-loan striker Nathan Eccleston for the clash against league leaders Norwich.

The Liverpool teenager starts a three-game ban following his dismissal in last week's defeat at Gillingham, but manager Lee Clark has plenty of options with Gary Roberts, Theo Robinson and Robbie Simpson all desperate to return to the starting line-up.

Clark, who spent two years as assistant to former Norwich boss Glenn Roeder at Carrow Road before taking charge of Town, could also hand a recall to defender Lee Peltier, who has missed the last two games due to an ankle injury.

Otherwise, the Terriers boss has no new injury or suspension worries as his side look to make up lost ground on the top six following back-to-back league defeats.

Norwich have midfielder Darel Russell back in contention for the encounter.

Russell has sat out the last three games through suspension after he was sent off against Southampton last month and now faces a battle to get back into Paul Lambert's side.

The Canaries won all three games without him to go four points clear at the top and Russell may have to make do with a place on the bench.

Left-back Adam Drury played for an hour for the reserves earlier this week as he recovers from a thigh injury and will travel with the squad.

But centre-half Zak Whitbread (calf) and striker Cody McDonald (thigh) are still out as Lambert's side look for yet another victory.
