Kevin O'Connor will be missing again for Brentford when they host Huddersfield.

The Bees' long-serving skipper is still out with a foot injury and faces another fortnight on the sidelines.

David Hunt will continue in the midfield anchor role and will also keep the captain's armband.

Striker Carl Cort is pushing for a place in the starting line-up after being rested for Easter Monday's goalless draw with Exeter.

Goalkeeper Nikki Bull could return on the bench after a run-out for the reserves on Wednesday, his first action in five months following shoulder surgery.

Centre-half Mark Phillips is still missing with a knee injury and left-back Ryan Dickson's season may be over due to a hamstring problem.

Huddersfield winger Anthony Pilkington is doubtful for the match due to an ankle injury.

Pilkington is struggling after taking a knock in Tuesday's win over Oldham and if he misses out Nathan Eccleston, on loan from Liverpool, will start.

The Terriers will definitely be without midfielder Antony Kay, who completes a two-match ban.

Strikers Lee Novak (knee) and Robbie Simpson (thigh) have been out for several weeks and although both are close to a return, the game will come too soon for them.

Manager Lee Clark has no other new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make too many changes as his side chase a fourth win in five matches to maintain their push for the play-offs.
