HUDDERSFIELD Town won’t risk Danny Cadamarteri on a 10-hour round-trip coach journey to Yeovil unless he’s got a “very good chance” of being involved.
Manager Lee Clark is keen to protect his high-impact striker for the run-in, so Cadamarteri will have to prove he’s recovered from a back injury to make the Huish Park date (3.00).
Cadamarteri (inset) trained yesterday and Clark will check today on whether he’s suffered any adverse reaction before the squad leave for the West Country.
“We can’t afford for Danny to suffer a setback in any way so, when he’s ready, we want him to be ready for every game coming up,” explained Clark.
“There is no way we want to get him back one game and out for three or four, that’s no good at this stage, so he will have to have a very good chance of being involved for us to take him.”
On the match against Terry Skiverton’s side, who are battling to improve a two-point gap on the relegation zone, Clark added: “It will be very, very tough.
“I’ve seen them a couple of times and they’ve got a good group of players and play some decent stuff, so we are going to have to be right up for it.
“I was pleased with the performance on Tuesday because we started well, took our opportunity and then, when Hartlepool threw things at us later on we defended resolutely.
“The clean sheet was a big thing, and the more of those we keep I’d like to think the easier it will be to win games.”
