Preview: Huddersfield (away) League Cup Round 2 – 27.08.13

An interesting dilemma now awaits Chris Powell when his men meet Huddersfield on Tuesday night in the League Cup

Charlton will be hoping to avenge their FA Cup exit at the hands of the Terriers last season tonight at the John Smiths stadium -  but does Chris Powell stick with the starting 11 that won through the first round, or does he tinker a little after the events of Saturday - only 3 subs from seven are available however.

Jackson is coming back from injury we understand, and there may may be others who lack fitness still having not had a full pre season.

CP may also want to tinker with his central defensive pairing, or put out his first choice to see if they can gel further.

Indeed he may opt to make a point and play his first 11, particularly given Huddersfield are a club at a similar level

Then again with Leicester in his sights will Mr P risk knackering his top selection, or prefer to make the most of the rest they've been allowed by forgoing 45 minutes?


The Verdict:

Stephens is still considered unfit, but Jackson should start, and Green may well get another chance to make his case, as no doubt will Sordell perhaps alongside Church -  although Piggot may be preferred for the first or second half? Similarly maybe Wiggins will be given an outing for 45.

We think perhaps something like as follows:

Sordell Chruch/Piggot

Jackson Hollands Hughes Green

Wiggins\Evina Dervite Cort\Woods Wilson
