Match Preview

Pools light on midfielders Hartlepool manager Mick Wadsworth has been hit by injuries and suspensions and will be scratching around for midfielders for the home clash with Huddersfield. Gary Liddle will undergo surgery after fracturing his cheekbone on Saturday in an aerial collision with Walsall skipper Andy Butler and fellow midfielder Nathan Luscombe starts a three-game ban following his dismissal in the 1-1 draw. Antony Sweeney is already sidelined due to a groin strain that kept him out at the weekend and summer signing Nolberto Solano was forced off against Walsall with a hamstring strain and is not expected to play. Wadsworth could be forced to give late fitness tests to defenders Evan Horwood - he was forced off on Saturday in the closing stages - Neil Austin and Sam Collins, who are all struggling with knocks. Strikers James Brown and Colin Larkin, who have yet to feature for Pools this season due to respective ankle injuries, are hoping to be included in the squad. Huddersfield midfielder Anton Robinson is hoping to return to the squad as his side look to break an 86-year old club record. Robinson, a summer signing from Bournemouth, sustained a hamstring strain on his debut against Bury on the opening day. Another midfielder, long-term absentee Damien Johnson, is also closing in on a return to first-team action after damaging cruciate knee ligaments last December and could be included in the squad. Goalkeeper Alex Smithies remains sidelined and undergoes surgery to resolve a long-standing knee problem this week. Winger Danny Ward, who scored Town's second equaliser at Rochdale on Saturday, is one of several players hoping to return to the starting line-up, with striker Jordan Rhodes and defender Calum Woods among them. The Terriers equalled a club record of 27 successive league games unbeaten at Rochdale on Saturday, which was set in 1925.

Match Report

Record-breakers are held Huddersfield made it a club-record 28 unbeaten league games but were far from convincing in a 0-0 draw at Hartlepool. The Terriers have not lost since December 28 last year, beating an 85-year old record in the process. A long punt from goalkeeper Scott Flinders almost created an early chance for Colin Larkin, but the striker was unable to get the ball under control to trouble keeper Ian Bennett. Town's Oscar Gobern shot low from 25 yards at Flinders and Tommy Miller found the stand with a shot, but Pools had a purple patch in the second period when they created a run of half-chances. Colin Larkin's pace on the counter attack saw him break free, but his shot lacked enough power. A swift move after 67 minutes brought Pools' best chance and when the ball fell to Colin Nish, he should have done better but shot wide from an angle. The Terriers almost stole it in the 80th minute but Miller, the former Pools midfielder, whipped a low shot wide of the post.
