English Premier League
Huddersfield vs Newcastle
Date: Sunday, August 20, 2017
Time: 08:30a.m ET
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium
Huddersfield are without injured quartet Nahki Wells, Jonathan Hogg, Martin Cranie and Jon Gorenc Stankovic.
Captain Tommy Smith is available despite being substituted after 57 minutes last weekend.
Newcastle could give a debut to striker Joselu, who has joined from Stoke, but midfielder Jonjo Shelvey begins a ban.
Defenders Florian Lejeune and Paul Dummett are both sidelined after being forced off with injuries against Tottenham last weekend.
Huddersfield have no fresh fitness concerns ahead of today’s clash, the Terriers’ first ever Premier League home game.
After missing last weekend’s 3-0 win at Crystal Palace, Jonathan Hogg, Nahki Wells (both ankle), Martin Cranie (hip) and Jon Gorenc Stankovic (knee) remain unavailable.
Midfielder Hogg is the closest to making a return to first-team action, although possibly not until after the forthcoming international break.
