Terriers fighting fit
Huddersfield manager Lee Clark will select from virtually a fully-fit squad for the home game with Preston.
Clark has no new injury or suspension worries and the only player not available is goalkeeper Alex Smithies, who has not featured this season due to a knee problem that required surgery in September.
Central defender Jamie McCombe is hoping to be included in the squad. He returned to contention last week following a three-match suspension but was left out altogether as Clark retained club captain Peter Clarke alongside Antony Kay.
Striker Jordan Rhodes is expected to partner either Alan Lee or Lee Novak up front after scoring 10 goals in his last four matches, including five in two appearances for Scotland Under-21s.
Huddersfield are hoping to extend their record unbeaten league run to 39 matches, and a point would be enough to see them go top of the table if Charlton slip up against Carlisle.
Preston remain hopeful that top scorer Neil Mellor could play some part as they bid to get back into the play-off places.
Mellor, who has struck eight goals this season and bagged the npower League One player of the month award for September, is struggling with an ankle injury he sustained against Walsall.
The striker missed the visit of Sheffield United on Wednesday and was considered highly doubtful for the trip to the Terriers.
But North End boss Phil Brown has refused to rule Mellor out and will be hoping he can return after seeing his side go down 4-2 to the Blades.
Midfield pair Paul Coutts and Barry Nicholson, and defender Brian McLean all picked up knocks in that game so will be monitored before they are declared available.
Rhodes leads Terriers' charge
Jordan Rhodes scored another hat-trick as Huddersfield won a fourth consecutive league match and took their unbeaten run to 39 games with a convincing 3-1 win over Preston.
Rhodes, who has now scored 13 goals in his last five matches, put Town in front in the fourth minute when North End goalkeeper Iain Turner fluffed an attempted clearance, leaving the Scotland Under-21 international with an easy tap-in.
The striker then crashed in his second off the post in the 42nd minute with a fine header from Jack Hunt's curling cross.
The third was created by Scott Arfield's 57th-minute through-ball, with Rhodes showing great composure to turn past the last defender and fire low into the bottom-right corner.
It means Rhodes has scored back-to-back hat-tricks in the league following his three-goal blast at Exeter last week.
He also scored a hat-trick for the Scotland Under-21s against Luxembourg, meaning he hit trebles in three of his last five games for club and country.
Preston, who slumped to a fourth straight defeat, played their part in an entertaining contest. Town goalkeeper Ian Bennett brilliantly saved Iain Hume's deflected goal-bound shot, while Terrier skipper Peter Clarke denied Adam Barton with a goal-line clearance.
The visitors scored a consolation in the 61st minute when Hume's low cross was turned in at the far post by Juvhel Tsoumou.
