Early season leaders Huddersfield host third-placed Wolves, one of five fellow unbeaten Championship sides, who make the trip to one of their least favourite grounds.

New Terriers left-back Tareiq Holmes-Dennis could feature.

Wolves, who have lost on six of their last seven trips to Huddersfield, still have Cameron Borthwick-Jackson waiting to make his debut.

The Manchester United loanee was left on the bench against Cambridge.

But Wolves are without midfielder Lee Evans, who is now not expected to return until after the international break, having been ruled out for a few weeks with a knee injury.

And, although Nouha Dicko is closing in on a return, new boss Walter Zenga remains without defenders Silvio and Mike Williamson, as well as Michal Zyro and Jordan Graham, who have both undergone knee operations.
