Match Preview

Town to assess defensive duo Huddersfield defenders Jamie McCombe and Liam Ridehalgh could return to contention for the home clash with derby rivals Sheffield Wednesday following illness. Both players missed the 2-2 draw at Carlisle on New Year's Day, for which manager Lee Clark made four changes following last Tuesday's 4-1 defeat at Southampton. Latest loan signing Kevin Kilbane made his debut and is expected to continue in midfield, while Joey Gudjonsson and Tom Clarke are also hoping to retain their places alongside him. Clark has no new injury problems but must decide whether to recall the likes of Anthony Pilkington, Scott Arfield, Gary Roberts, Graham Carey and Jordan Rhodes, who have all dropped out of the starting line-up in the wake of Town's poor recent results. Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine will select his side from a virtually full-strength squad for the derby clash. The Owls, whose scheduled game against Peterborough on New Year's Day was postponed, have only defender Lewis Buxton (hamstring) and midfielder Giles Coke (knee) currently on the sidelines. Irvine must decide whether to make changes to his starting line-up in the wake of their 5-1 defeat at Exeter in their last match, which came on December 18 with the Boxing Day clash with Tranmere also falling victim to the freezing conditions. Striker Neil Mellor could return to the starting line-up if Irvine opts to change his formation, while defender Richard Hinds, midfielder James O'Connor and striker Paul Heffernan are all pushing for recalls.

Match Report

Pilkington stunner sinks Owls Huddersfield winger Anthony Pilkington scored a wonder goal to settle a thrilling all-action televised top-of-the-table Yorkshire derby with Sheffield Wednesday at the Galpharm Stadium. Pilkington, who recently signed a new two-year deal, curled in an exquisite shot from 25 yards midway through the first half. The visitors, who had not played since losing 5-1 to Exeter 16 days ago, were denied an equally-spectacular leveller when Clinton Morrison`s stunning volley after 50 minutes was ruled out for offside. The game started like lightning, with Town`s Jordan Rhodes being foiled by a great save from Owls goalkeeper Nicky Weaver straight from the kick-off. The Terriers were then denied what looked a certain penalty when Morrison handled from the resulting corner. Huddersfield goalkeeper Alex Smithies made a brilliant double save to keep out Darren Purse and Jermaine Johnson after 31 minutes as Wednesday hit back. Weaver was then at it again with an equally-brilliant save to keep out Scott Arfield`s piledriver late on. The second half was marred by several bad-tempered confrontations but Huddersfield clung on to register a first league win in four outings and a first double of the season following a 2-0 win at Hillsborough in November.
