Russell: Back in contention

Huddersfield will be without striker Nathan Eccleston for the visit of League One leaders Norwich.

The on-loan Liverpool teenager starts a three-game ban following his dismissal in last week's defeat at Gillingham.

Terriers boss Lee Clark has plenty of other options up front, though, with Gary Roberts, Theo Robinson and Robbie Simpson all hoping to return to the starting line-up.

Clark, who spent two years at Carrow Road as assistant to former Norwich boss Glenn Roeder before taking charge of Town, could also hand a recall to defender Lee Peltier (ankle) after missing the last two games.

The Terriers are looking to make up lost ground in the play-off race with back-to-back league defeats having left them two points off the top six.

Norwich news

Leaders Norwich have midfielder Darel Russell back in contention for the trip to the Galpharm Stadium.

Russell has sat out the last three games through suspension after being sent off against Southampton last month but faces a battle to get back into Paul Lambert's starting line-up.

The Canaries won all three games without him to go four points clear of Leeds at the top of the table.

Left-back Adam Drury (thigh) played an hour for the reserves in midweek and will travel with the squad, but centre-half Zak Whitbread (calf) and striker Cody McDonald (thigh) are still out.
