Huddersfield V Norwich at John Smith's Stadium : Match Preview

Huddersfield midfielder Jonathan Hogg expected to return for Norwich clash

Huddersfield expect to welcome back Jonathan Hogg for the Sky Bet Championship game with Norwich.

Hogg has returned to training after initial fears he had fractured a bone in his neck during last month's defeat at Bristol City.

The midfielder's recovery is timely as Dean Whitehead serves a one-match ban after being sent off in the surprise weekend home defeat to Burton.

Chelsea loanees Kasey Palmer and Izzy Brown remain out, as does Sean Scannell, but Nahki Wells and Elias Kachunga could return to the starting line-up after recent knocks.

Norwich will make a late call on Wes Hoolahan, who missed the weekend defeat at Aston Villa with a thigh injury.

But Graham Dorrans (ankle), Matt Jarvis (hamstring) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) are all definitely out.

Youssouf Mulumbu is included in the travelling party after several weeks out with a thigh problem.

But defenders Mitchell Dijks and Ivo Pinto are both missing through suspension, the former completing a three-match ban and Pinto absent after his Villa red card.
