Match preview: Terriers v Owls

News December 8, 2020

The Owls will be aiming to put the disappointment of Saturday’s trip to Norwich behind them with a quickfire return to action in midweek at Huddersfield.

A resolute and well-organised Wednesday side frustrated the league leaders at Carrow Road on Saturday and had the lead through Josh Windass.

But Tony Pulis’ side were undone by two late strikes that turned the game on its head.

The Wednesday manager has called for more composure and belief late in games to grind out results when under pressure.

The Terriers are comfortable in mid-table heading into Tuesday’s clash with Wednesday.

Carlos Corberan has steered his side to two wins from their last three outings, both coming on home soil against Middlesbrough (3-2) and QPR (2-0).

Elsewhere, there are no fresh injuries from Saturday’s trip to Carrow Road.

Massimo Luongo is back available after serving a one-match suspension.

Liam Shaw remains suspended for another two games, while Keiren Westwood (groin) is likely to miss out.

Huddersfield: Terriers boss Carlos Corberán is waiting on key defender Christopher Schindler’s scan results to see the severity on the injury he picked up in their 2-0 win over QPR.

Tommy Elphick and Richard Stearman are longer-term injury concerns for Town and have yet to feature this season.
