Huddersfield Town are looking to finish Easter on a high this evening when they take on Norwich City at Carrow Road.
Carlos Corberan’s side can take confidence from Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Brentford in the Championship, but will have to find similar levels if they are to compete with league leaders, Norwich, this evening.
Irritatingly, Huddersfield also have a couple of injury issues that they are contending with.
In yesterday’s press conference (@htafc), Corberan confirmed that he was sweating on the fitness of both Alex Vallejo and Pipa, who were both forced from the field in that draw with Brentford.
There could, then, be an opportunity for Aaron Rowe to come into the side, whilst Juninho Bacuna should also be in contention for a start after doing well when replacing Vallejo at the weekend.
If you don’t get at least 15/20 on this Huddersfield Town midfielder quiz, can you really call yourself a Terriers fan?
Additionally, there’s a decision to make with regard to Huddersfield’s system of choice heading into the game, having experimented with a narrow 4-2-3-1 against Brentford.
Vallejo was key to that in anchoring the midfield with Jonathan Hogg, but there may be a temptation to revert to something of a 3-5-2 that made Huddersfield a lot harder to beat back in March.
If that’s the case, expect Rarmani Edmonds-Green or Richard Stearman to come into the fold as a third centre-back.
Potential Huddersfield XI: Scofield; Edmonds-Green, Keogh, Sarr; Duhaney, Bacuna, Hogg, O’Brien, Rowe; Campbell, Sanogo.
