THE TEAM NEWS

HUDDERSFIELD

  • Huddersfield lie in 18th place, just three points above the bottom three going into this match with fellow relegation battlers Wigan.
  • The Terriers lost their last SkyBet Championship match before the season was suspended, a 2-0 defeat away at table-toppers Leeds United in a Yorkshire derby.
  • Manager Danny Cowley has been handed a boost with the news that midfielder Andy King has committed to playing through the resumption of the season, whilst Jonathan Hogg is now fully-fit having recovered from a knee injury

WIGAN

  • Wigan sit just below Huddersfield in 20th place, only two points above the bottom three and will need to hit the ground running come the season’s resumption.
  • The stoppage came at an awful time for Latics who were in terrific form, having hauled themselves out of the bottom three by losing just one of their last nine league matches.
  • Manager Paul Cook will be able to call on key loan signings Leon Balogan and Kieran Dowell for this game. Meanwhile, defender Antonee Robinson has returned to training following treatment on a heart issue which scuppered his prospective January transfer to Italian giants AC Milan.

THE PREDICTION

A key battle between two sides nervously looking over their shoulders as Huddersfield host an in-form Wigan side. The break won’t have helped Paul Cook and his players, with them riding a wave of momentum before things came to a halt. Huddersfield have proved strong at home under Danny Cowley and with both sides needing three points, an entertaining game could be in prospect with both teams scoring.
