Hogg & O’Brien potentially out: The predicted Huddersfield Town XI to face Blackburn Rovers tomorrow night

Published

on

Huddersfield Town are looking to bounce back following defeat to Swansea City at the weekend when they host Blackburn Rovers at the John Smith’s Stadium tomorrow. 

Carlos Corberan’s side have lost three of their last four fixtures and pressure is building as they look to get back to winning ways in the Championship.

It’s going to be tough against Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn tomorrow given their form. However, it’s also going to be difficult for Huddersfield to overcome a couple of potential absentees.

As our graphic above shows, there could be no Jonathan Hogg or Lewis O’Brien against Blackburn. The midfield pair are being assessed today, with Corberan revealing a decision will be made on their availability later.

In the event of Hogg and O’Brien missing out, Duane Holmes and Alex Vallejo come into contention all of a sudden.

Luckily for Town, they can name a similar defensive unit to the one that has done well on the whole this season: Lee Nicholls, Matty Pearson, Tom Lees and Levi Colwill.

Harry Toffolo will play as a left wing-back, whilst Sorba Thomas should revert to a similar role on the right.

Vallejo and Holmes, then, could come into the midfield, alongside Danel Sinani.

In attack, we could also see changes.

Danny Ward is fresh and pushing for a return to the side, whilst Josh Koroma, who was limited to a role off the bench last time out, could come back into the XI.
