Peltier banned for Terriers
Huddersfield defender Lee Peltier will sit out his one-game ban when Hartlepool visit.
Peltier was due to miss the postponed game at Brentford last week but skipper Peter Clarke will return to the side following his suspension.
Midfielder Damien Johnson, on loan from Plymouth, has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to cruciate knee ligament damage and defender Gary Naysmith must wait a little longer for his return from a lengthy absence due to a broken bone in his foot.
Striker Benik Afobe, on loan from Arsenal, is expected to be recalled to the squad after recently returning to the Emirates Stadium to take part in an FA Youth Cup game for the Gunners.
Hartlepool could welcome back Andy Rafferty into their squad.
The goalkeeper has returned to training following a hand injury and is in contention, however, on-loan shotstopper Jake Kean is likely to retain his starting place.
First-choice goalkeeper Scott Flinders is still missing with a problem similar to Rafferty's, while young striker Billy Greulich also remains on the treatment table with an ankle problem.
Forward duo Denis Behan and Colin Larkin have not played since October and November respectively and although they have shaken off their injuries, they lack match fitness and are unlikely to start.
Hartlepool will be looking for a fourth consecutive win at the Galpharm Stadium, having recorded victories at Tranmere and Bournemouth in npower League One and over Yeovil in the FA Cup.
Sweeney nicks winner
Antony Sweeney plundered a well-worked goal to light up the only League One match to beat the weather as in-form Hartlepool beat Huddersfield 1-0.
A cute backheel from Andy Monkhouse after 43 minutes put Evan Horwood in the clear down the left channel and the full-back's cross was deftly hooked into the net by Sweeney.
Huddersfield could have gone second in the table with a win but struggled to get going against a disciplined Hartlepool side.
And when the Terriers did get going they found on-loan Blackburn keeper Jake Kean in fine form.
The youngster dived at the feet of Gary Roberts after 26 minutes and also raced out to deny substitute Benik Afobe an equaliser late on.
He also brilliantly turned away shots from Peter Clarke and Anthony Pilkington after Huddersfield had switched to three up front in search of a goal.
Hartlepool could have won by more, with Huddersfield keeper Alex Smithies doing well to tip away Steve Haslam's dipping drive.
Fellow substitute Colin Larkin also missed a sitter late on, blazing over the bar from close range when left unmarked at the far post from Horwood's cross.
