Marlon absence could Pack a punch in Terriers test

Cardiff could be without summer signing Marlon Pack at home to Huddersfield.

The former Bristol City midfielder was forced off during the first half of Sunday’s 3-0 defeat at Reading with a leg injury.

But Lee Peltier, who missed the trip to Reading after having an injection in his ankle, is set to return and replace Leandro Bacuna at right-back.

Callum Paterson faces a late check and Isaac Vassell hopes to make his first Cardiff start after building up his fitness since his deadline-day move from Birmingham.

Former Cardiff captain Mark Hudson will be in caretaker charge of Huddersfield following the departure of Jan Siewert three games into the Sky Bet Championship season.

Hudson is contemplating handing a debut to Frazier Campbell, who was signed as a free agent by Siewert and who has been training with the full squad for the last week.

The once-capped England striker was a team-mate of Hudson’s at Cardiff, scoring 16 goals in 52 games for the Bluebirds between 2013 and 2014.

On-loan Chelsea midfielder Trevoh Chalobah hopes to make his first league start for the Terriers after impressing off the bench during the 2-1 home defeat to Fulham, while Rajiv Van La Parra is also in contention.
