Carlos Corberan delivers emphatic Huddersfield Town selection update as three players assessed ahead of Luton Town

Published

Huddersfield Town head coach Carlos Corberan has revealed that Scott High will start tomorrow against Luton Town if Alex Vallejo and Jonathan Hogg are unavailable. 

Vallejo started and scored in Tuesday’s 3-2 win against Blackburn Rovers but was forced off at the start of the second-half with a knee injury. Hogg, meanwhile, missed out completely due to an abdominal problem.

Today, both midfielders will be assessed along with Levi Colwill, leaving Corberan unsure whether or not they will be fit enough to feature at Luton.

“Vallejo is receiving medical assessment,” Corberan revealed to his press conference this morning. “He is currently with the doctors and I don’t know how he is going to be. If he can train, he’s going to be one of the options we have, but if he cannot train, he is not going to be in the group.

“Hogg and Colwill will have a medical assessment (today ahead of training). If they train, I will know after training if they’ve reacted well and are ready for tomorrow, or if they are out.”

When quizzed on whether High, who replaced Vallejo on Tuesday, has Corberan’s backing to come into the starting line-up alongside Lewis O’Brien in midfield, the head coach was emphatic.

He continued: “If Vallejo doesn’t play and Hoggy doesn’t play, Scott High will start.”

Jordan Rhodes and Pipa, meanwhile, remain long-term term absentees, whilst Aaron Rowe is three or four weeks away from returning.

Ryan Schofield, though, will begin his comeback during the upcoming international break.
