Huddersfield v Sheff W preview

Huddersfield will be without suspended defender Jack Hunt.
Hunt received his 10th booking of the season in the midweek win at Leyton Orient and sits out a one-game ban, so Calum Woods will return to the starting line-up.
Woods, who had missed the previous two matches due to a groin strain, will return at left-back, with the versatile Tom Clarke switching to right-back.
Tommy Miller could return to the squad to face his former club after missing the last 11 matches. The midfielder has been sidelined since early February after a double hernia operation.
Manager Simon Grayson has no other new injury or suspension worries, but is still without left-back Gary Naysmith (knee), plus midfield duo Oscar Gobern and Damien Johnson (both hamstring).
Town are five points adrift of the second automatic promotion place with six games remaining.
Sheffield Wednesday skipper Rob Jones will miss the clash at promotion rivals through suspension.
The Owls centre-half received his 10th booking of the season in last week’s home win over Preston and sits out a one-match ban.
Mark Beevers could come into contention, but manager Dave Jones is more likely to recall Danny Batth to the starting line-up alongside Miguel Llera.
Batth returned to the substitutes’ bench against Preston after a hamstring strain.
Manager Dave Jones, who has no new injury or suspension concerns, must decide whether to retain Nile Ranger, on loan from Newcastle, up front alongside Gary Madine, or recall Chris O’Grady.
Winger Keith Treacy is pushing for his first start after two substitute’s appearances since arriving on loan from Burnley.
The Owls, in third place, are three points ahead of fourth-placed Huddersfield and two adrift of Sheffield United, in second.
