Diego Poyet in the spotlight

Diego Poyet is the focus of the FA preview of tomorrow's FA Cup tie between Huddersfield and Charlton. He will be on the bench and may get some game time: Poyet

The local Huddersfield paper rates Charlton as a 'capable side' and expresses regret that the change of regime at The Valley is likely to mean that Chris Powell's days are numbered: Chris Powell

Huddersfield strikers Nahki Wells and Joe Lolley are both ineligible for the match Fellow forward Martin Paterson (thigh) and defender Joel Lynch (groin/hip) remain doubtful, but leading goalscorer James Vaughan could return.

Les Rouges can include parent club Standard Liege loanees Yohann Thuram-Ulien and Astrit Ajdarevic in their squad. Chris Solly is unlikely to be available and may need another operation. Richard Wood may start after being rested in midweek but Rhoys Wiggins is suspended.

This is the fifth meeting in the FA Cup, with Huddersfield winning twice and Charlton once. The bookies have this down as a sure fire home win: Huddersfield 10/11, Draw 12/5, Charlton 3/1. I think we might secure a replay at The Valley.
