David Wagner is fearing the worst after right-back Chris Lowe was stretchered from the field moments before half-time on Saturday.

The defender went down holding his right arm following a heavy collision with Fabian Balbuena and was immediately taken for a scan. "He has a shoulder [ligament] injury which looks serious," Wagner said after his sides 1-1 draw with West Ham. "He is in the hospital at the minute and we have to wait to see how serious it will be, but he will be out for a few weeks." The German has started all but one Premier League encounter, dropping to the bench against Cardiff [GW3], a fixture which saw Terence Kongolo move across onto the left flank. However, in a back four, that meant Mathias ‘Zanka’ Jorgensen playing centrally and he is suspended for the trip to Wolves after collecting his fifth caution of the campaign. If compatriot Erik Durm can remain fit, then he could possibly nail down a regular starting berth for the first time in an injury ravaged 18 months.

Huddersfield Town will be disappointed not to have taken all three points after playing well in a 1-1 draw home against West Ham United on Saturday.

Fresh from their first win of the season against Fulham on Monday, Huddersfield carried the momentum and dominated the opening period. The hosts produced the opener in the sixth minute when Alex Pritchard played a one-two with Jonathan Hogg before sweeping a low shot from the edge of the area into the bottom corner. Huddersfield nearly doubled their advantage before the break when Phillip Billing's cross rattled off the far post. Despite resolute defending in the second half, West Ham drew level on 74 minutes when Felipe Anderson swept home from 12 yards after a goalmouth scramble. On the injury front, Chris Lowe will be assessed after being forced off with a shoulder injury in the first half.

Huddersfield Town secured its first win of the season in a 1-0 victory over relegation rivals Fulham at the John Smith's Stadium.

Huddersfield set the pace for the match early on, controlling possession and putting Fulham under lots of pressure with a high press. The home side almost went ahead inside 15 minutes when Jonathan Hogg stripped Mitrovic in midfield and set up Philip Billing, who rattled the crossbar with a thunderbolt from 30 yards out. The Terriers continued to work and were rewarded on 29 minutes when Timothy Fosu-Mensah inadvertently headed Chris Lowe's high cross into the net. Andre Shurrle had a goal ruled out for offside in the second half, but that was the closest the visitors came to equalizing. The victory lifts Huddersfield off the bottom and into 18th place on six points, one point and two spots above Fulham.

Huddersfield Town will be at nearly full strength when they take on Fulham at the John Smith's Stadium on Monday.

David Wagner has confirmed that Danny Williams is the only Huddersfield player unavailable this weekend. Ramadan Sobhi and Rajiv van La Parra are both back following illness, while Terence Kongolo (knee) and Tommy Smith (hamstring) are also in contention. With Wagner's side still searching for their first home goal and win of the season, he may opt to use an attack-minded formation against a Fulham defence conceding an average of three goals per match. Fantasy managers in draft leagues could find Town attackers useful in Gameweek 11.
Nov 2 - 5:42 PM

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner has revealed that Danny Williams is the only confirmed absentee for Monday's clash home match against Fulham.

The US international has been sidelined since September due to an ongoing knee problem but should return to contention action after the international break. Williams was a regular last season and should factor into the first-team plans once fully fit, though a starting role could be hard to come by given the emergence of Philip Billing. Billing is expected to start in midfield alongside Aaron Mooy and Jonathan Hogg on Monday, while youngster Juninho Bacuna could see minutes off the bench.
Nov 2 - 4:25 PM

Huddersfield Town winger Isaac Mbenza is an injury doubt for Saturday's match against Liverpool.

The loanee from Montpellier earned his 11th cap for Belgium's Under-21s during the international break, completing the full 90 minutes and recording an assist in their 3-0 win over Sweden. However, Town boss David Wagner revealed there's a question mark over Mbenza's availability for this weekend because of "a little bit of fluid" in his knee. Wagner was also able to provide some positive news on long-term absentee Ramadan Sobhi, who has resumed training after being sidelined by a knee injury. "Ramadan Sobhi has been in training for ten days and looks very good, but he was out for nearly six weeks, so I have to see whether we give him another week of training or a game with the Academy before we bring him into the squad."
Oct 18 - 9:42 PM

Tommy Smith has been ruled out of Huddersfield Town's home clash with Liverpool on Saturday because of a groin injury.

The 26-year-old right-back made 24 appearances for Huddersfield last season but has struggled for playing time this term, having started just one of the first eight matches. While Town boss David Wagner revealed Smith should be ready to return next week, minutes will be hard to come by with both Erik Durm and Florent Hadergjonaj fit. Durm has started the last three matches and should continue on the right side of defense against Liverpool, while Hadergjonaj could see minutes off the bench.
Oct 18 - 8:46 PM

Huddersfield Town midfielder Phillip Billing could be fit for this weekend's clash against Liverpool despite suffering an ankle injury while on international duty.

The defensive midfielder returned early from Denmark Under 21 duty because of the ankle injury but could be available for the visit of Liverpool after returning to first-team training on Thursday. Speaking to the press on Thursday, Huddersfield boss David Wagner said: "Phil had treatment over the last few days and worked with our rehabilitation coaches. He will train today with the team and hopefully he’s fine after training. At the minute, all the signs are positive, that he’s available for Saturday." Billing's availability would be a huge boost against the joint league leaders considering he's been one of the first names on Wagner's team sheet so far this season. The 22-year-old is averaging a club-best 3.4 successful tackles per game while his 11 shots are bettered only by striker Steve Mounie.
Oct 18 - 8:09 PM

Huddersfield Town midfielder Ramadan Sobhi says his knee is "fine" after being sidelined for the majority of the season thus far.

The Egypt international has made just one appearance for Huddersfield since arriving from Stoke City for £5.7m this summer, coming off the bench in the lopsided defeat to Manchester City in August. However, the 21-year-old is confident he is ready to return to action after overcoming a knee injury over the international break. "I am fine," he told HTTV. "In first training today. I am happy. I ran today. I am happy my knee is good now. Everything is okay." Once entirely fit, Sohbi will compete with Rajiv van La Parra, Adama Diakhaby and Elias Kachunga for minutes on the wing.
Oct 15 - 4:23 PM

Aaron Mooy will not join his international team-mates after a scan confirmed the Terriers midfielder suffered a groin strain in the 1-1 draw at Burnley.

Huddersfield Town supporters will be hoping his withdrawal from squad to face Kuwait next Wednesday is more of a precaution as the game is a friendly. "I am disappointed that I won’t be able to join my Socceroos teammates in this camp," Mooy said. "I enjoyed the camp in Turkey [September] and trust that I will be ready to join the team in Australia [November]." Head coach Graham Arnold admitted it was a "pity" that Mooy could not be a part of the get together, but stressed it was "paramount that we help him manage his fitness for the long-term" given his importance to both club and country. Huddersfield are yet to win the Premier League this term and with Liverpool next up at the John Smith’s Stadium, David Wagner will need all of his key players available if he hopes to spring a surprise over his German counterpart.

Oct 9 - 3:30 AM

The Terriers will feel that they deserved more going into Turf Moor and coming away with a 1-1 draw due to Christopher Schindler's first goal of the season.

Bad defending let the Terriers down early as they left Johann Berg Gudmundsson unmarked to find Sam Vokes for the opener in the 19th minute. But then Huddersfield went on the front foot passing circles around the Clarets putting them on the back foot. Controlling 62 percent of the possession and firing off 19 shots, Huddersfield was only able to get one on target. It came through Chris Lowe finding the head of Christopher Schindler in the 66th minute. Things would get nervy as Schindler looked likely to go off due to a head injury but he was able to continue for the Terriers. THings got nervy at the end of the game and Chris Lowe had to be withdrawn for Florent Hadergjonaj but the extent of Lowe's injury is unknown.
Oct 6 - 12:10 PM

Huddersfield are still searching for their first win of the season and things appear to be heading from bad-to-worse for David Wagner.

The defeat to Tottenham left the Terriers three points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League due to their inferior goal-difference (-13) while they have failed to score in all four home games this term with their only point coming in a 0-0 draw with relegation-rivals Cardiff City. However, problems at the opposite end of the pitch are the cause of greater concern after Terence Kongolo and Christopher Schindler picked up, what could be, major injuries during Saturdays loss. "It looks like a serious hamstring injury. [Kongolo] pulled his hamstring when he made this tackle," Wagner said before also revealing Schindler "had a twist and has pain in his knee" and was unable to carry on. "The good thing is there is no fluid on the knee at the minute, but we have to make further investigations with both to give a serious answer."
Oct 2 - 5:03 AM

Erik Durm should be back in contention for Huddersfield Town on Saturday after injury ruled the German defender out of the clash with Crystal Palace.

David Wagner was speaking after his sides disappointing 1-0 home defeat by the Eagles in which he confirmed Durm had "unfortunately" picked up a back problem during the final training session ruling him out of the game. "It looks like it isn't serious. Hopefully he will be back at the beginning of the next week for training." Injury-wise the Terriers are looking pretty good, but Wagner will need to check on Terence Kongolo who, despite picking up an early knock last Saturday, came through 90 minutes. "I think he will be fine." Huddersfield travel to the King Power this weekend, and with no wins on the board, Wagner will be looking to avoid a repeat of the New Year’s Day defeat which saw Leicester cruise to a comfortable 3-0 win.

Huddersfield Town winger Ramadan Sobhi has withdrawn from the Eygpt squad and will return to West Yorkshire to complete his recovery a knee injury.

The 21-year-old has made just one substitute appearance for Town this season and was sidelined for the last three matches due to a knee injury. Sobhi was still selected for Egypt's Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Niger on Saturday but has since withdrawn due to the knock. Huddersfield boss David Wagner revealed last week Sobhi would be back after the international break, putting him in contention to return when Crystal Palace visit the John Smith's Stadium on September 15. Ravij van La Parra is expected to continue on the left wing until Sobhi is fully fit.
Sep 4 - 8:54 PM

Huddersfield Town claimed a hard-fought away point in a 1-1 draw against Everton at Goodison Park.

David Wagner made two changes to the side which earned a goalless draw against Cardiff City last weekend. Jonas Lossl replaced the injured Ben Hamer in goal, and Chris Lowe was selected to replace the suspended Jonathan Hogg as the manager went with a five-man defence. The Terriers weathered some early chances and grew in confidence as the game, eventually punishing Everton in the 34th minute when Phil Billing headed home a deflected Chris Lowe corner. The lead only lasted two minutes however as the hosts responded through Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who powered a header beyond the outstretched hand of Lossl. Despite struggling to create chances from open play, Huddersfield held on to secure their second point of the season, moving them out of the drop zone to 17th.
