Huddersfield Town boss won't be recalling Robinson and Simpson to ease striker woes
Nov 2 2010 by Dougie Thomson, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
LEE CLARK says he’s happy to head to Hillsborough with the players at his disposal as Town seek a derby victory over Sheffield Wednesday tonight (7.45).
The Galpharm boss is short of strikers, with Alan Lee starting a three-match ban and Lee Novak out with a hamstring tear.
Neither Robbie Simpson nor Jimmy Spencer can be recalled from loan spells at Brentford and Morecambe, respectively.
And Clark has ruled out bringing Theo Robinson back from Millwall because his loan is with a view to a permanent move, and the player has a knee injury in any case.
While an incoming loan has been mooted, the manager says he won’t rush into a deal for the sake of it.
That leaves Jordan Rhodes and Joe Garner in pole position to face the Owls, although Clark has stressed the versatility of other team members.
“We’re down on numbers because of Alan’s ban and injuries to other players, but I’m not viewing it as a problem, more a chance for others to stake their claim,” he said.
