BEN Mee returns to the side to face Huddersfield Town after injury.
The left back missed the Boxing Day defeat at Middlesbrough and goalless draw at Wigan on Sunday because of a thigh injury but has been declared fit for the trans-Pennine New Year's Day derby.
It is the only change to the side that picked up a point at the DW Stadium.
Huddersfield have named an unchanged side from their 5-1 thrashing of Yeovil Town, which means a Turf Moor return for Martin Paterson.
The former Clarets striker has scored in each of his last two games.
