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

Huddersfield V Leicester - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Ward should make it for Terriers

Huddersfield winger Danny Ward is expected to be fit in time for the home game against champions Leicester.


Ward was forced out of Monday's win at Yeovil after taking a bang on the head, but returned to full training on Thursday and boss Mark Robins has no new selection issues.


Defender Joel Lynch is back in contention after a two-game ban, but the season is over for striker James Vaughan (knee) and midfielder Keith Southern (groin) is still struggling.


Huddersfield clinched their first win in 11 matches at Yeovil to end any lingering relegation fears and are chasing back-to-back league wins for the first time since December.


Jeff Schlupp and Jamie Vardy remain doubts for Leicester as they prepare for their final away game of the season.


Schlupp sustained a knee injury against QPR so Paul Konchesky returned at left-back against Bolton on Tuesday night as the Foxes clinched the Sky Bet Championship title with a 1-0 win at the Reebok Stadium.


Vardy missed that match with a groin problem and the striker will continue to be monitored ahead of Saturday.


Victory at Bolton saw Leicester equal a club-record points total of 96 set when the Foxes were crowned League One champions during the 2008/09 campaign.
