Team News: Huddersfield
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Huddersfield gaffer Carlos Corberán to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy group of players. Levi Colwill (Ankle Injury) won’t play.
Team News: Hull City
Due to a completely injury-free squad available for selection, the Hull City boss Grant McCann has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash.
We feel that Hull City may not find it easy to be putting a goal past this Huddersfield Town lineup who we think will likely manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We therefore fancy a good battle with a 1-0 advantage for Huddersfield Town at the end of this one.
It should be a good one.
