Match Preview

Woods boost for Terriers Huddersfield defender Calum Woods is expected to be back in contention for the home clash with Stevenage. The right-back missed the midweek penalty shootout defeat to Bradford in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after being forced out of last Saturday's win at Brentford with a hamstring strain. Liam Cooper, on loan from Hull, was recalled to the back four on Tuesday night but suffered a back spasm at half-time and his place in defence could go to Antony Kay. Central defender Jamie McCombe sits out the final game of his three-match ban, meaning skipper Peter Clarke will continue at centre-half. Midfielder Oscar Gobern was forced off in midweek with a dead leg but is expected to be fit after returning to training. Goalkeeper Alex Smithies (knee) will remain sidelined until January. Stevenage boss Graham Westley could restore Darius Charles to his starting line-up for the trip. The defender returned from a knock as a second-half substitute in Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at AFC Wimbledon and ended up playing 75 minutes as his side were knocked out on penalties. Goalkeeper Chris Day will start after being rested in that game, meaning Alan Julian will revert to the substitutes' bench. Winger Jennison Myrie-Williams is still nursing the hamstring problem he suffered during the 1-0 defeat to Carlisle last month and is unlikely to be fit. Striker Chris Beardsley will again be involved after returning from his back injury in midweek, while Rob Sinclair (knee) and Don Cowan (ligaments) remain absentees.

Match Report

Terriers claim hard-fought win Lee Novak spared unbeaten Huddersfield's blushes as he plundered the winner to secure a 2-1 victory over Stevenage in a match which boiled over at the end. Novak steered in the rebound from close range on 76 minutes after substitute Anton Robinson hit a post with a scuffed shot. Huddersfield, now unbeaten in 37 league matches, nearly made a mess of it, though, with a disjointed second-half display. And Stevenage were handed a golden opportunity to equalise for a second time in the 90th minute, but John Mousinho blazed a dubious-looking penalty over the crossbar after Antony Kay was punished for an innocuous challenge on Byron Harrison. Boro boss Graham Westley's touchline antics throughout the match sparked a brawl at the end involving opposite number Lee Clark. Players from both sides squared up in an ugly melee that took several minutes to die down after the final whistle. Stevenage, trailing to a Gary Roberts strike after 44 minutes, almost levelled when Mousinho had a shot cleared off the line by Calum Woods. The visitors were outplayed in the first half but looked a different side after the break, and their pressure finally told when Mousinho set up Scott Laird, who unleashed an unstoppable low drive in off the post after 67 minutes.
