Huddersfield Town v Burnley

1st January 2019, 18:29 by Tom McGarry

Two of the bottom three will meet at the John Smith's Stadium on Wednesday when Huddersfield play host to Burnley.

The Terriers currently sit bottom of the standings, five points adrift of safety, with Saturday's 1-0 loss at Fulham seeing them equal a club record of seven straight defeats.

The Yorkshire outfit lost all of the matches they played during December, while they have failed to win any of their last six meetings with Burnley, with their most recent success over the Clarets coming in the Championship back in November 2013.

On a positive note, boss David Wagner has no new injury concerns although Aaron Mooy, Danny Williams, Abdelhamid Sabiri and Tommy Smith all remain sidelined.

Burnley ended their own three-match losing run by claiming a much-needed 2-0 victory over West Ham on Sunday - a result that means only goal difference is keeping them inside the relegation zone.

Winger Robbie Brady could boost the Clarets for Wednesday’s match after recovering from an adductor problem, while Matt Lowton is available following a ban.

The match will come too soon for goalkeeper Nick Pope, who has been out since July with a shoulder injury, although he could make his return in this weekend's FA Cup clash with Barnsley.
