Clarke: Could be in Town squad

Clarke: Could be in Town squad

Team news ahead of Tuesday night's League One clash between Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United defender Lescinel Jean-Francois will miss out through suspension.

The Haiti international, operating at left-back for the Blades in recent weeks, received his fifth booking of the season in the weekend draw at Scunthorpe and sits out a one-game ban.

Nick Montgomery remains sidelined with an ankle injury and is several weeks away, while fellow midfielder Kevin McDonald is still out with a similar problem, but he is closer to returning.

Another midfielder, Lee Williamson, is pushing for a recall to the starting line-up as is striker Ched Evans, who struck a second-half equaliser after he too stepped off the substitutes' bench at Scunthorpe.

Manager Danny Wilson has no other injury or suspension problems as his side look to extend their unbeaten league start to eight matches.

Huddersfield skipper Peter Clarke is hoping to return to the squad.

Clarke has been sidelined in recent weeks due to a back injury, but returned to full fitness in time for Saturday's home win over Tranmere only to be omitted from Lee Clark's 16-man squad.

Terriers boss Clark must decide whether to recall his captain at Bramall Lane or retain Jamie McCombe and Antony Kay at the heart of defence.

Midfielders Damien Johnson and Oscar Gobern are also hoping to feature in Clark's plans after failing to make the weekend squad.

Fit-again Johnson has not appeared for Huddersfield this season following knee ligament damage, while Gobern had been a regular in midfield.

Left-back Gary Naysmith is still struggling with the knock that kept him out over the weekend, but winger Danny Ward and defenders Kay and Calum Woods are all expected to shake off minor injuries.
