Hudd'field v Millwall preview

BY foxsports • April 19, 2013

Huddersfield defender Jack Hunt will return to contention following injury for the home clash with Millwall in the Championship on Saturday.

Right-back Hunt, who has missed the last three games due to a hamstring problem, has trained with the first-team squad this week.

But winger Danny Ward is ruled out again due to the groin injury that has forced him to sit out Huddersfield's last three matches.

Striker Lee Novak and Theo Robinson, on loan from Derby, are hoping to return to the squad, while manager Mark Robins has no other injury or suspension problems.

Defenders Joel Lynch and Murray Wallace, midfielders Oscar Gobern and Scott Arfield, plus striker Alan Lee are all pushing for recalls as Huddersfield chase their first home win in four games in a bid to climb out of the bottom three.

Millwall are set to be without winger Chris Taylor and defender Shane Lowry.

Taylor is to undergo a scan to determine the extent of the groin injury he suffered half an hour into Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Watford, and Lowry starts a three-match ban for accumulating 15 bookings this season.

Midfielders Sean St Ledger and Liam Trotter failed late fitness checks in midweek and will be assessed again.

St Ledger suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final defeat by Wigan and Trotter aggravated the knee problem which had sidelined him for the previous couple of games.

Skipper Paul Robinson (pelvis) is due to start running over the next couple of weeks but is not expected to play again this term.
