Terriers to be unchanged
Huddersfield manager Lee Clark is expected to name the same starting line-up against Tranmere.
Clark, who has no new injury or suspension problems, has seen his new-look side make a flying start to the season with an opening-day win at Notts County followed by victory at Carlisle on Tuesday night in the Carling Cup.
Summer signings Jamie McCombe, Gay Naysmith, Scott Arfield, Joey Gudjonsson and Joe Garner have all impressed in the first two matches and after successive clean sheets, Clark is unlikely to tinker with a winning formula.
Graham Carey, on loan from Celtic, and strikers Damien Johnson and Lee Novak are pressing for recalls to the side but may have to make do with a place on the substitutes' bench.
Nathan Clarke and brother Tom are the only injured first-team squad members.
Tranmere have signed West Brom striker Kayleden Brown on a month`s loan ahead of the trip.
The Wales Under-19 international, 18, spent time on loan at Icelandic side Keflavik earlier this summer after progressing through the ranks at The Hawthorns.
Manager Les Parry said: "Kayleden is a good young prospect who I've seen play a lot for West Brom's reserve side.
"He's strong, athletic and has a good scoring record and I'd like to thank Roberto Di Matteo for allowing him to come to us on loan."
Parry has no new injury concerns and could again include skipper Ian Thomas-Moore despite him handing in a transfer request last week.
Thomas-Moore is hoping to join his father Ronnie at Rotherham but no deal has yet been agreed between the clubs.
Keepers on top in stalemate
Goalkeepers Joe Collister and Alex Smithies produced the only moments of quality as disciplined Tranmere held a lacklustre 10-man Huddersfield to a goalless draw.
Rovers shot-stopper Collister, 18, did well to parry a shot from Jordan Rhodes in the 29th minute after Gary Roberts forced defender Ian Goodison into a mistake in the box.
Tranmere boss Les Parry had kept faith with Collister following his impressive performance in the Carling Cup in midweek, despite having Gunnar Nielson on loan from Manchester City.
Collister repaid his manager`s faith with a competent display, and he did well again in stoppage-time to deny Roberts, who struck from 25 yards.
Smithies, meanwhile, was alert early on to beat away Terry Gornell's long-range blast, but he was nearly caught out by Enoch Showunmi when attempting to clear Gary Naysmith's poor backpass.
Town's Scott Arfield produced a rare glimpse of attacking flair with a solo run past three defenders after 31 minutes, but he dragged his shot wide from a tight angle.
An equally sterile second half was only notable for Tranmere's Joss Labadie breaking away down the left. But he snatched at his shot and ballooned the ball over the crossbar from 25 yards.
Huddersfield's miserable afternoon was completed in the 86th minute when Scotland international Naysmith was sent off for a second yellow card. Naysmith brought down substitute Kayleden Brown on the edge of the box.
