Same again for Terriers

Huddersfield boss Mark Robins could stick with the same starting line-up for the home game against Watford.

Robins has no new injury or suspension problems following the midweek draw at Middlesbrough as Town bid to extend their unbeaten run to six league matches.

Teenage midfielder Duane Holmes continues to push for his first league start for the club and winger Danny Ward is hoping to feature again after returning to action off the bench at Middlesbrough following an ankle injury.

Oscar Gobern returned to the starting line-up on Tuesday night in place of Oliver Norwood and boss Robins must decide who to start with in midfield and striker Jon Stead is also hoping for a recall.

Almen Abdi continues to occupy the sidelines as Watford travel aiming to bounce back following their midweek defeat to Blackburn.

The influential midfielder has been on the sidelines for some time with a foot complaint and is not scheduled for a return until after the international break.

Manager Gianfranco Zola is also waiting on the fitness of two others players.

Cristian Battocchio is a doubt after failing to train since Tuesday's defeat by Rovers due to a foot problem, while fellow forward Javier Acuna was withdrawn at half-time at Ewood Park with a twisted ankle and is struggling.
