ONE win - that is all that stands between Huddersfield Town and promotion to the npower Championship.

Tomorrow’s massive League One play-off final pits the Terriers against Peterborough United at Old Trafford with both sides desperate to clinch the one remaining place in the second tier of English football.

Town experienced mixed fortunes against Posh during the regular season, losing at London Road, drawing at the Galpharm Stadium but winning their Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash last October.

However, all of that will be immaterial when the sides go head-to-head again in a game that Terriers’ chief executive Nigel Clibbens believes is worth £10m to the club should they win.

Huddersfield manager Lee Clark is confident that Lee Peltier will be fit for the game after the 24 year-old required hamstring treatment for an injury sustained in the first leg of the play-off semi-final against Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, Town’s on-loan striker Benik Afobe has been called up to the England squad that will play in the European U19s elite qualifying tournament in Switzerland.

Afobe, who revealed that the Terriers’ squad is “feeling fit and positive” ahead of Sunday’s final, will travel out to Switzerland immediately after the Peterborough game.

He will then aim to inspire England to victory over the hosts next Thursday and Spain on Sunday, June 5.
