Exeter City will look to take heart from their recent performances and results as they make a first trip to the Galpharm Stadium to face Huddersfield Town. City have seen a recent upturn in home form, with seven points collected from the past three games at St. James Park. Away from home, City`s only victory so far was a fortunate one at Carlisle in August, but they can be buoyed by good performances at heavyweights Leeds United and Charlton Athletic.
Huddersfield are certainly play-off contenders, and started the season in fine style, including a 7-1 battering of Brighton. However, after that promising start Town have now gone five league games since their last victory at MK Dons over a month ago.
Terrier`s manager Lee Clark will welcome back a whole host of players. Captain Peter Clarke returns from suspension, and Lee Peltier, Danny Drinkwater, Robbie Sampson, and Theo Robinson are also set to return to the squad.
Despite these returns, Tom Clarke will miss out with a knee injury, and so too will Chris Lucketti who has a heel injury.
The 20 year old striker has made a promising start to his career at the Galpharm Stadium, with five league goals to his name this campaign
Oscar Jansson should return in goal after shaking off a knock, but Andy Marriot - who played his game for the first team for the first time since April 2008 in midweek - is on standby. First choice Paul Jones is still not ready for a return after a set-back in his rehabilitation from a knee injury and operation.
Midfield playmaker Ryan Harley has been ill this week and hasn`t trained, but City manager Paul Tisdale is confident he will be available.
The on-loan winger has regulary provided the Grecians will an extra dimension
There have only been 18 previous meetings between the sides (all in league), and the overall record is closely matched with 7 wins for Town, compared to 6 for City, with 5 draws.
