Huddersfield manager Lee Clark will stick with a strike partnership of Jordan Rhodes and Theo Robinson for the home clash with Charlton.

Nathan Eccleston, on loan from Liverpool, serves the last match of his three-game ban, while Lee Novak (knee) and Robbie Simpson (thigh) are also still sidelined.

Rhodes took his goal tally for the season to 19 and Robinson hit his 10th in last weekend's 2-0 win at Orient.

Clark has no other new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make any changes to his starting line-up, but Nathan Clarke, Tom Clarke, Antony Kay, James Berrett and Robbie Williams are all pressing for recalls.

The Terriers ended a run of three straight defeats at Orient and currently lie three points behind sixth-placed Colchester in the play-off race.

Charlton have been hit by a host of injury problems.

Goalkeeper Rob Elliot and top scorer Deon Burton are definitely missing while Akpo Sodje, Lloyd Sam and Jose Semedo also picked up knocks against Gillingham last week.

Boss Phil Parkinson has drafted in veteran keeper Tony Warner after regular number one Elliot was ruled out for a month with a groin injury, and he will vie with Darren Randolph for the gloves.

With Burton out for a fortnight with a sprained knee ligament and fellow striker Sodje doubtful with a toe injury Parkinson has also brought in his former Reading team-mate Nicky Forster on loan from Brighton.

Midfield duo Sam (calf) and Semedo (thigh) will need late checks while Leon McKenzie (thigh), Kelly Youga (knee) and Grant Basey (ankle) remain in the treatment room.

Teenage West Ham defender Matt Fry has also joined on loan and will be on the bench.
