Huddersfield Town take on League One outfit Chesterfield this evening as they look to recover from the devastating start to their 2014/2015 season.

Saturday's 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth was compounded by manager Mark Robins and the club parting company on Sunday and so Mark Lillis will take charge of the Terriers at the Proact Stadium.

And here is everything you need to know about the game as the Capital One Cup gets underway.

Kick-off

Chesterfield v Huddersfield Town (7.45pm)

The likely line-ups

Chesterfield (4-2-3-1) : Lee; Darikwa, Evatt (capt), Cooper, Humphreys; Morsy, Ryan; Boco, Roberts, Jones; Doyle.

Huddersfield Town (3-5-2) : Murphy; Smith, Peltier (capt), Lynch; Hammill, Coady, Norwood, Majewski, Dixon; Wells, Ward.

Ones to watch

Chesterfield: Romauld Boco. The former Accrington Stanley and Plymouth Argyle wideman has linked up with manager Paul Cook for a fifth time and rewarded his boss' faith at the weekend with an impressive strike in the 2-1 win at Leyton Orient.

Huddersfield Town: Conor Coady. Looks set to be handed his full debut after making a brief cameo in the Bournemouth debacle at the weekend and will look to make an immediate impression.

 

What the bookies say

Town are considered marginal favourites with Skybet at 13/10 but Robins' exit, coupled with the comprehensive defeat to Bournemouth mean Chesterfield are set to give the Terriers a stern test, and that is reflected in their odds of 2/1.

The draw is 12/5 while James Vaughan is the favourite in the markets to find the net first at 5/1, but given his likely absence at the Proact Stadium, Nahki Wells is your next best bet at 11/2 with Spireites forward Eoin Doyle a 13/2 tip.

Last time they met

Town headed to the Proact Stadium during their pre-season preparations for 2013/2014 but went down 2-1 to their hosts, with former Town man Gary Roberts opening the scoring after Marc Richards was twice denied by Jake Carroll.

Danny Ward equalised with a deflected shot from the edge of the area but Jamie Devitt struck the winner for the Cook's side with an expert free-kick after Doyle had been felled.

The last league meeting between the two teams was in March 2012 in League One as Jordan Rhodes added to Lee Novak's opener with his 34th goal of the season to give the Terriers a deserved 2-0 win.     

Match facts

Head-to-head

Huddersfield are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Chesterfield across all competitions (90 minutes only, W2 D3).

The only previous match to take place in this competition between these two sides came in Round One of the 2005-06 League Cup - with Town coming out on top 4-2 thanks to a Gary Taylor-Fletcher hat-trick and a further strike from Pawel Abbott.

Chesterfield

Chesterfield last advanced to the second round in the 2006-07 League Cup, and have fallen at this hurdle in each of the last seven seasons.

Huddersfield Town

Town have lost four of their last five away games in the League Cup (W1, L4).

The Terriers have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last 11 games in this competition.

What the managers say

Mark Lillis: “We have a Capital One Cup game at Chesterfield on Tuesday, which is an important one for the Club and players after the performance and result on Saturday.

We must go into the cup game to win and play how we can. A win could kick off a run.

“I know that the fans will get behind the players if they put a shift in and we’ve challenged the players to do that.” 

Paul Cook: N/A

Man in the middle

Gary Sutton (Lincolnshire). Took charge of just one game involving Town last year as he officiated the Terriers' 2-1 reverse at Ipswich Town.

In fact, of the six games he has refereed Town, only two have ended with a positive result (D2, L2) - a 4-0 win at home to Exeter City in October 2009 and a 2-0 win at Tranmere Rovers in April 2011.

He kick-started his own 2014/2015 campaign on Saturday in Fleetwood Town's 2-1 win over Crewe Alexandra.

Tom says

"Those in the game say having a game to play straight after suffering disappointment is the best way to flush it out of the system.

"Well, Town have certainly encountered a double blow after a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Bournemouth and the subsequent parting of company between manager Mark Robins and the club.

"But they have the perfect opportunity to reverse the slide at Chesterfield tonight and caretaker boss Mark Lillis can ensure that the team plays with pride and purpose.

"The home side will certainly pose a test to Town's fragile state but each and every player should relish the opportunity to get back to winning ways and silence the critics.

"Because of the matchwinning quality Town possess in the likes of Radoslaw Majewski, Adam Hammill and Nahki Wells against a League One defence, I am going for a narrow win for the Terriers. 1-2.
