TEAM NEWS

Huddersfield head coach David Wagner has several key men available again, including midfielder Philip Billing, who has served a three-match ban.

Goalkeeper Joe Murphy, defender Joel Lynch and midfielders Emyr Huws and Karim Matmour could all feature.

Sean Dyche’s options should be aided by the return of David Jones, who has recovered from an Achilles problem.

Fredrik Ulvestad started at Craven Cottage, while Dean Marney’s return offers Dyche another midfield option.
