Richard Stearman will be fit, despite badly dislocating a finger in Tuesday night’s defeat to Watford, while Lee Martin will also be in contention to keep his run in the team going.

“Everyone is okay, Stears dislocated his finger and had a bit of trouble getting it put back together,” said McCarthy.

“He was being sedated on Tuesday night but he is alright now.

“But I have told him to stay away from training as the last thing I needed was for him to get a bang on it in training, so we will meet him in Huddersfield on Friday night.

“Lee Martin did okay against Watford, for someone that has been off for three weeks. He has got a remarkable level of fitness.

“In the end, he got blisters and he was struggling with those.”
