Arfield fit for final

Fri, 25 May 15:14:44 2012

Huddersfield midfielder Scott Arfield appears set to return to contention for the npower League One play-off final against Sheffield United, but goalkeeper Ian Bennett is struggling.

Arfield missed the return leg of Huddersfield's semi-final win over MK Dons due to an ankle problem, while Bennett injured his hand in the same match and was replaced by Alex Smithies, who is likely to continue in goal.

Manager Simon Grayson has no other injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make any unforced changes to the side that started against the Dons.

Skipper Peter Clarke is expected to continue alongside Sean Morrison in central defence, with Tommy Miller and Damien Johnson in central midfield, Danny Ward and Kallum Higginbotham on the wings and 40-goal striker Jordan Rhodes continuing his partnership with Lee Novak up front.

Huddersfield lost 3-0 to Peterborough in the League One play-off final at Old Trafford last year and were knocked out at the semi-final stage by Millwall in the previous season's play-offs.
