Joe Lolley is still struggling with a foot injury and will not be able to participate this Wednesday.

Midfielder Sean Scannell has a hip problem and will also miss the trip to Preston.

David Wagner’s side will be looking to bounce back from their loss to Sheffield Wednesday last weekend. A win over Preston could see the Terriers regain their top spot in the Championship, depending on other results.

Injury-Hit Preston

Preston come into this game with a number of injuries. Former Huddersfield defender, Calum Woods, is still not cleared to compete after suffering a serious knee injury during pre-season.

Marnick Vermijl, Jermaine Beckford and Aiden McGeady are all struggling with hamstring problems and are unlikely to play against the Terriers.

Striker Stevie May has returned from a knee injury however, the 23-year-old needs to build up his fitness before he can once again start for Simon Grayson’s side.

Left back Greg Cunningham comes back into the team following his one-game suspension and could start against Huddersfield.

The home side have won two of their last four games which included a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.

However, despite their recent good form, Preston still find themselves 18th; four points above the relegation places.

Booming Fanbase

Huddersfield, on the other hand, have enjoyed one of their best ever start’s to a season which has seen a striking increase in ticket sales. A record 22,000 fans turned out last weekend to watch the Terriers.

The team will be looking to keep their fans happy with a win against Preston this Wednesday night.
