Jack Hunt: Missed Huddersfield's draw against Peterborough

Right-back Hunt (hamstring) and centre-half Gerrard (calf) missed the draw with Peterborough after sustaining injury during last week's defeat at Bolton, while winger Danny Ward remains doubtful for the weekend due to a groin strain.

"We lost Danny Ward (on Friday) and we knew Anthony Gerrard would be touch and go with an injury he picked up in Tuesday night's game," Robins said after Saturday's 2-2 draw.

"We also knew Jack Hunt had no chance of playing in this game, but that is football and you have to respond. That's what a squad is for.

"Hopefully Anthony will be all right for the weekend, whereas the outcome of Jack's scan was ok. We hope to have him back as soon as possible.

"Danny's injury may be a little bit different. He hurt his groin right at the end of training, funnily enough, when we were practising our set pieces, so he will be out for a little while."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
