Match preview: Huddersfield v Wednesday

13 September 2019

Wednesday’s Sky Bet Championship campaign resumes on Sunday with a trip to Huddersfield.

The 12noon kick-off will see new managers in both dugouts with Garry Monk set for his first game as Owls boss, while Danny and Nicky Cowley are set for their maiden game in charge of the Terriers.

From six games so far this season, Wednesday have posted three wins and three defeats in the Championship.

Prior to the international break, the Owls slipped to back to back league defeats against Preston and QPR, either side of victory over Rotherham in the Carabao Cup.

Huddersfield are still searching for their first win of the campaign having lost five of their six games in the Championship.

The Terriers drew 1-1 with QPR in early August and currently sit 23rd in the Championship.

Team news

SWFC: Tom Lees will be assessed on Saturday before a decision is made on the skipper.

The captain missed the clash with QPR last time out with a hamstring injury but has since returned to training.

Elsewhere, there are no fresh injury concerns for Wednesday.

Huddersfield: Alex Pritchard may return to the starting XI after dropping to the bench in the Terriers’ last outing away at Luton due to a minor knock.

Manager Danny Cowley hopes to have a full squad available for the clash on Sunday.
