Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Hooper could return after seven weeks out with a hamstring injury.

Full-back Morgan Fox will be hoping to make his debut after being ineligible for the FA Cup defeat by Middlesbrough.

Casey Palmer (hamstring) is a doubt for Huddersfield, while Jonathan Hogg and Rajiv van la Parra (both knee) are out.

Nahki Wells and Aaron Mooy are among a number of players set to return after being rested for their FA Cup victory over Port Vale.
