Huddersfield Town stand-in manager Mark Lillis has a number of injury concerns – including his own son Josh.
The 27-year-old Rochdale goalkeeper is recovering from an ankle injury sustained in the League I game at Chesterfield the Saturday before last.
Expected to be out for two months, he was at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday to see his dad’s charges face Nottingham Forest in the Capital One Cup.
Born in Derby, where Mark Lillis was a player (and later coach and caretaker manager), Josh came through the ranks at Scunthorpe, another club served by his dad.
He joined Rochdale in 2012 after impressing during a loan spell and has made 191 career appearances.
Mark Lillis is hoping Town’s treatment room clears before Saturday’s Championship match at Watford.
He was forced to leave Nahki Wells (ankle), Lee Peltier (groin) and Jonathan Hogg (calf) out of the cup clash with Forest, while Tommy Smith picked up a groin problem.
Also sidelined at the moment are Joe Lolley (hip), Anthony Gerrard (calf), Oscar Gobern (toe) and Martin Paterson (knee).
Watford were beaten 2-1 at home to Doncaster Rovers in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday, but have won three out of four in the league.
