Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield boosted by Billing and Mooy

1st February 2019, 13:39 by Chris Rivers

Huddersfield could hand starts to both Aaron Mooy and Philip Billing in Saturday's clash at Chelsea after both returned to training.

Mooy hasn't played for the Terriers since their 1-0 loss at Arsenal in December after damaging his medial collateral knee ligament, but he came off the bench in the midweek defeat to Everton and should start at Stamford Bridge.

Fellow midfielder Billing could also be handed a recall by head coach Jan Siewert after missing the last two matches with a minor knee issue.

Isaac Mbenza faces a late fitness test due to a calf strain while Danny Williams and Abdelhamid Sabiri remain sidelined with knee and collarbone injuries respectively.

New signing Karlan Grant could be handed his debut following his move from Charlton Athletic this week, with Siewert hopeful he can ease Huddersfield's goalscoring concerns after registering 14 goals for the Addicks.

"There are reasons why we are at the bottom. Just look at the goals which we have scored - 13 at the moment. This is, of course, a reason," Siewert said. "But this is talking about the past and I don't want to do that. I am working on us scoring because they have been low on confidence and I want them only to improve."
