Standing in The Terriers way are this evenings opponents Walsall.

Town will be keen to bounce back following on from the hugely disapointing 3-0 loss away at Brentford on Saturday.

Huddersfield could be boosted by the return of Lee Peltier, Anthony Pilkington and Lee Novak, all who are on the road to recovery follwoing injuries, one face definately back in the fold is midfielder Antony Kay, who returns to the side following his suspension.

Michael Collins could be missing for the Terriers after having surgery on a brogen finger on Monday (ouch!)

Vital Quotes: Lee Clark

“We talked things through on Sunday and those points have gone, we can`t do anything about that now,”

“But we have another chance tonight to take points.

“In fact the next two games give us a big incentive because right now our fate is still in our hands and we have to take that opportunity.”

Huddersfield Town Team News:

Michael Collins looks set to miss out with a finger injury, although dont be surprised to see him strapped up with a splint to play.

Antony Kay has completed his two match ban and returns to the squad for the game.

Anthony Pilkington, Lee Peltier and striker Lee Novak were all involved in training and manager Clark is hopeful they will overcome their knocks.

Robbie Simpson is definately out.

Player to watch: The Team

Town must get back on track as a unit, pass the ball and score the goals to help cement that play-off spot!

Walsall Team News:

Alex Nicholls is rated doubtful

Deeney returns from suspension

Rhys Weston looks unlikely to feature.

Player to watch: Troy Deeney

  • Congratulations Terriers. You managed to ease the shakes after nearly throwing it away. Great result for you and two more wins will do it now I reckon. That is too make sure of course. Colchester look to have blown up as I thought you had. Bottle is still there.
