Team news: Huddersfield Town, Sheffield Wednesday, Bradford City, Rotherham United, York City

A truncated programme this weekend because of the international schedule, but there are still five Yorkshire teams in action. Log on here for team news from your club.

All matches 3pm Saturday unless stated

League One

Huddersfield Town v Stevenage Borough

Team news: Right-back Calum Woods is expected to be back in contention after missing the midweek penalty shootout defeat to Bradford. Liam Cooper, on loan from Hull, was recalled to the back four on Tuesday night but suffered a back spasm at half-time and his place in defence could go to Antony Kay. Central defender Jamie McCombe sits out the final game of his three-match ban, meaning skipper Peter Clarke will continue at centre-half. Midfielder Oscar Gobern was forced off in midweek with a dead-leg but is expected to be fit after returning to training.

Sheffield Wednesday v Chesterfield

Team news: Jermaine Johnson is back in contention following suspension. Johnson has served a three-game ban following his dismissal in last month’s 5-1 defeat at Stevenage. Gary Megson will be without defender Reda Johnson, who is on international duty with Benin for an African Nations Cup qualifier against Rwanda, so Mark Reynolds and Julian Bennett will be vying to fill the gap at left-back. Ryan Lowe remains sidelined with the ankle injury that has dogged him since his summer arrival from Bury. Chris O’Grady is pushing for a start after overcoming his foot problem.

League Two

Bradford City v Torquay United

Team news: Ritchie Jones, Andrew Davies and Craig Fagan all return to contention. On-loan winger Jamie Devitt (hip) has returned to Valley Parade following treatment at parent club Hull and could play some part on Saturday. But manager Phil Parkinson will be without strikers Ross Hannah, forced out of the action on Tuesday night with a knee injury, and James Hanson, who is still struggling with a calf strain.

Rotherham United v Burton Albion

Team news: Mark Bradley requires surgery after dislocating his shoulder during the midweek Johnstone’s Paint Trophy defeat to Sheffield United. Fellow defender Ryan Creswell remains sidelined after missing the last three games with an ankle injury and Troy Brown is away on international duty with Wales’ Under-21s. Manager Andy Scott has only two fit centre-halves, Michael Raynes and Jonny Mullins, with the latter having only recently returned to action following a long-term knee injury. Midfielder Gareth Evans was also rested on Tuesday night but is expected to return to the side, as is goalkeeper Conrad Logan.

Blue Square Bet Premier

York City v Braintree

Team news: Andre Boucaud has been declared fit but Michael Potts may continue to deputise. David McGurk returns after serving a one-match ban.
