City facing tough Huddersfield test

City facing tough Huddersfield test

Exeter City host Huddersfield Town this weekend with City hoping to complete their first double of the season.

Richard Duffy`s header gave the Grecians an unlikely 1-0 victory when the sides met at the Galpharm back in November.

Jamie Cureton is a major doubt for the game with a hamstring injury. Goalkeeper Ben Hamer should be fit to play despite nursing a groin strain.

Otherwise Paul Tisdale has no injury concerns. He will have to select his team carefully bearing in mind City play again just two days later in the JPT area final.

Huddersfield may hand a start to Danny Cadamarteri, who re-signed for the club last week following his release by Dundee United.

Midfielders Joey Gejdenson (hamstring) and Tom Clarke (ankle) are injury doubts.

Huddersfield manager Lee Clark speaking to Radio Leeds:

'I don't think Exeter get the credit they deserve. For a club like them they compete very well and always seem to take points off the bigger teams.

'They make it very difficult at their own patch and we've already witnessed how tough they are.

'Here earlier in the season they got an early goal and then defended for their lives, although I still think we should have got all three points that day, and the stats back me up on that.

'We look a solid, steady unit at the moment and we need to continue that.'
