TALENTED defender Nathan Clarke is on course to return in Town's final home fixture of the season against Swindon on Saturday.
The 21-year-old could be at the heart of the Galpharm defence after recovering from the badly gashed lip which kept him out of the 1-0 victory at Brentford.
Clarke (pictured) will have to prove his fitness in training today and tomorrow, while manager Peter Jackson is also keen to monitor the progress of his stand-in captain's younger brother Tom.
The 17-year-old has suffered severe bruising since being taken off at Griffin Park, where he got a nasty shin injury in a challenge by Sam Sodje, and his chances of featuring as Town chase a double over the Wiltshire side remain in the balance.
"Nathan is back in training and I'm very hopeful he'll be okay for the weekend," said Jackson, who yesterday watched the Reserves clinch the Pontin's Holidays Division I East title with a 6-2 win at Scunthorpe.
"He seems to be fine at the moment, which is good news, but we'll just have to wait and see how Tom feels. His leg is very bruised."
On the Reserves win, clinched with goals from Junior Mendes (2), Lee Fowler, Matthew Young, John McAliskey and Rob Edwards, Jackson said:
"It was a terrific win and I'm very pleased for all the lads and for John Dungworth and Martyn Booty.
"We could have been four down at half time but, in the second half, we were a lot tighter at the back, won our 50-50s and played some excellent stuff.
"It's great to win any title and the promotion is good news for the whole club.
"We also finished the game with a very young side on the pitch and, as we've been saying all season, these young lads are the future of Huddersfield Town."
Tickets for the season finale at Wrexham on Saturday week are on sale at the Galpharm priced £16 adults and £11 concessions.
