Early Team News - Huddesfield v Latics

Latics have the long term injured Shaun Maloney and Gary Caldwell missing, Nick Powell and Scott Carson appear to be getting closer but not close enough for the weekend, Rösler won't risk his star man Powell until 100%.

Thomas Rogne is training with the group but still is a week or two away, Ivan Ramis' move to Crystal Palace feel down at the eleventh hour last week and the Spaniard has been told to knuckle down and fight for his place by the boss, Risler said - 'Ivan trained on Tuesday with the rest of the squad for the first time since his injury'

'He has to put in a shift in training and convince me that he is ready to play.'

'I don`t think he will go straight into the team against Huddersfield on Saturday, but he is not far off.'

Josh McEachran had a very good debut last weekend coming on as a second half sub and he must be pushing for a place in the starting line up, another new signing, striker Martyn Waghorn also appears to have impressed Rösler with his attitude in training whilst Markus Holgersson isn't quite ready, the boss says - 'Martyn Waghorn has trained well and will be involved in the squad.

'Markus Holgersson has had a virus and won't be involved.'

Latics possible - Al Habsi, Perch, Boyce, Barnett, Beausejour, Watson, McCann, Espinoza, Gomez, McManaman, Fortune

Huddersfield boss Mark Robins has only 20 year old striker Daniel Carr as a doubt, Robins says - 'There is only Daniel Carr who has a problem'

'I have pretty much a full pool of players to pick from. One or two have suffered a little illness this week and missed a bit of training, but the majority of players are fit and ready to go.

'Adam Hammill's knee was badly swollen, but he has worked hard to get back fit and he has returned to training.'

Huddersfield from - Smithies, Wallace, Gerrard, Smith, Dixon, Lolley, Woods, Gobern, Scannell, Clayton, Norwood, Wells, Paterson, Ward,
Bennett, Clarke, Southern, Holmes, Hammill

I think Fortune deserves to keep his place and be in from the start
