Mixed news for Huddersfield ahead of Burton clash

Huddersfield will be without Jonathan Hogg and Jon Gorenc Stankovic for their home game against Burton.

Hogg was given the all-clear this week following initial fears he had fractured a bone in his neck during the recent defeat at Bristol City and is scheduled to return to training at the weekend.

Defender Stankovic will be out for up to 10 months after damaging a cruciate ligament while away with the Slovenia Under-21 squad last week.

Midfielder Aaron Mooy is expected to recover from a knock sustained on international duty with Australia and forward Elias Kachunga is in contention after being withdrawn at Ashton Gate due to a hamstring strain.

Burton boss Nigel Clough will check on a handful of players returning from international duty before finalising his team selection.

Jackson Irvine (Australia), Tom Flanagan (Northern Ireland), Cauley Woodrow (England Under-21s) and Lasse Vigen Christensen (Denmark Under-21s) have all been away with their respective countries.

Albion, just one place and one point above the relegation places, also have concerns over the fitness of John Brayford, Kyle McFadzean and Luke Murphy.

All three players were nursing knocks following the home defeat to Brentford a fortnight ago and some of those issues remain ahead of the resumption of the Sky Bet Championship programme.
