JOHN KRETLOW - Monday, November 22, 2010
The American duo of Frank Simek and Mike Grella face a midweek tussle with Rochdale while Jemal Johnson and MK Dons host Huddersfield Town.
Carlisle United – Rochdale
Frank Simek and Mike Grella will try and help Carlisle United get the win when they host Rochdale in midweek League One play.
Simek and Grella both played the full ninety minutes in their weekend game, with Grella scoring the lone goal for the Cumbrians.
Carlisle lost their game against Walsall and will need a win against Rochdale to keep up with the clutter of teams at the top of the standings.
Rochdale tied Swindon 3-3 and will want a win to separate themselves from the bottom of the standings.
Carlisle's Paul Thirlwell and Danny Livesey have been out with long-term injuries and are inching closer to a return, though this game may come too soon.
Rochdale comes into the game with no injury concerns.
Milton Keynes Dons – Huddersfield Town
Jemal Johnson and Milton Keynes Dons travel to play Huddersfield Town in a League One clash.
MK Dons are coming off a tough 4-1 loss to Sheffield Wednesday and will need to bounce back with a good performance against Huddersfield Town.
Johnson did not start the game but came on in the second half to play the final 17 minutes of the game. The American should feature on Tuesday.
Dons' Sam Baldock came off their loss with an injury and looks to miss their midweek match. Jermaine Easter has a high thigh strain and could miss, while Aaron Wibraham is suffering from a back problem. Angelo Balanta should be out with an ankle injury and Jabo Ibehre should also miss with a knee problem.
Huddersfield Town comes into the game level with MK Dons in the standings and will want to separate themselves from them and the rest of the cluttered top of the table. They lost to Exeter City during the weekend.
They could be without Anthony Pilkington who has a hamstring problem. Graham Carey and Alan Lee are also suffering from injuries and are questionable for the midweek clash.
Anton Peterlin and Plymouth take on Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday.
