Puncheon set for league start

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner looks set to hand Jason Puncheon his league debut in the meeting with Cardiff City.

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner looks set to hand Jason Puncheon his league debut in the meeting with Cardiff City.

The playmaker made his debut in the FA Cup defeat at Bristol City last week, just a day after joining on loan until the end of the season.

Puncheon is now set to start in an advanced midfield role as the Terriers try to end their dismal losing run.

A 10th successive defeat would put some serious pressure on Wagner and the Yorkshire club are looking for just their third win of the season.

Defender Christopher Schindler will return from suspension after serving a one-game ban for his sending off last time out.

Goalkeeper Jonas Lossl is also set to return in place of Ben Hamer, but Aaron Mooy, Danny Williams (both knee), Abdelhamid Sabiri (collarbone) and Tommy Smith are all still out.
