Oumar Niasse will not make his Huddersfield Town debut over the Easter period after suffering a groin injury in training.
CC: "We've had bad luck with Oumar Niasse.
"He worked with our physical staff for three weeks and trained with the group. He played in a behind-closed-doors game, he slipped and has suffered an injury.

The former Everton striker only signed for the Terriers last week, and it had been hoped that he could be involved against the Bees on Saturday.
However, boss Carlos Corberan confirmed to the club’s media that Niasse is facing a spell out.
Worryingly, he also revealed that the Senegal international is going to need a scan on Monday, which will determine the full extent of his injury. Therefore, Niasse will surely also miss the Norwich game that’s scheduled for Tuesday.
Can you name the club’s top goalscorer from the last 13 seasons?
As you would expect, this news had frustrated the Huddersfield fans, who were hoping that Niasse would make a big impact in the run-in as the Yorkshire outfit look to pull clear of relegation trouble.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the injury update from the support…

Another handout to a player that will never play for the club. How many is that now?
