The midfielder has served his three-match ban for the red card he picked up in the 1-1 draw at Charlton and he comes back into Simon Grayson's plans.
However, defender Paul Dixon will play no part as he serves a one-match ban of his own after picking up five yellow cards.
Grayson will run the rule over defender Joel Lynch and striker Jermaine Beckford (both hamstring) who are still classed as doubts.
Lynch has been out of action since the home defeat to Leeds at the start of the month while Beckford, who has scored three goals in six games, has not played since the derby clash at Barnsley in early November.
Sean Scannell and James Vaughan both made their returns from injury in last week's draw with Bolton and should continue to be involved at the KC Stadium.
The Terriers, who come up against former manager Steve Bruce, are chasing a first win in six games.
