Huddersfield Town suffer double blow ahead of Derby County clash



Huddersfield could be missing captain Jonathan Hogg against Derby County tomorrow night – and Carlos Corberan’s woes have been compounded with an injury to Harry Toffolo.

The Terriers got back to winning ways on Saturday following a barren spell of nine games without a win in all competitions by absolutely trouncing high-flying Swansea City 4-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium.

But that game seemingly came at a cost, with Hogg making it to the 84-minute mark before coming off.

It could have just been fatigue related, but Corberan has confirmed it is an injury blow and that the 32-year-old has suffered a calf injury.

Hogg will have a scan but the game against the Rams is likely to come too soon, and he will join Toffolo on the sidelines.

How many league goals did Karlan Grant score for Huddersfield last season?

The left-back was a key part of Huddersfield’s early-season success and has scored twice and notched up a further five assists (transfermarkt).

Toffolo has missed the last three games due to suspension, but Corberan has confirmed – per Alfie Burns – that he’s going to miss another six weeks of action due to a back injury.

Winger Aaron Rowe filled in in Toffolo’s place at the weekend and he may be getting an extended run in the side in an unfamiliar left wing-back position.

The Verdict

Whilst Hogg’s injury doesn’t seem to be too serious, Corberan will be hoping he’s not sidelined for too long as there’s not a lot of depth in the midfield area right now for Huddersfield.

Toffolo’s problem is a lot more concerning. Midfielder Lewis O’Brien covered his spot for two games but Rowe’s performance against Swansea was pretty impressive for a player out of position – and he even slipped in Duane Holmes for a goal as well.

Whilst Rowe may be good for the interim, Huddersfield’s Spanish manager will be hoping for Toffolo to recover quicker than anticipated ahead of a tough end to the season.
