Swansea City v Huddersfield Town - Preview

Freddie Woodman and Yan Dhanda back as Swansea host Huddersfield

Swansea have goalkeeper Freddie Woodman and midfielder Yan Dhanda available for the visit of Huddersfield.

The pair missed the victory over Millwall two weeks ago through illness, but they trained throughout the international break and Woodman will replace Steven Benda in goal.

George Byers has recovered from an ankle injury which has ruled him out so far this season, but the midfielder will not be considered for the next three games as he builds up fitness.

Andre Ayew, Ben Cabango, Marc Guehi, Connor Roberts and Joe Rodon have returned from international duty, although it remains to be seen if the latter will be involved with Tottenham interested in the Wales defender.

Huddersfield have been helped by the two-week international break as the Terriers’ lengthy injury list has been reduced.

Alex Pritchard (quad), Lewis O’Brien (quad) and Christopher Schindler (hamstring) have trained and should return to the matchday squad.

Goalkeeper Ryan Schofield has also joined in after a thumb injury.

But Danny Ward (hamstring) and Tommy Elphick (knee) face another two weeks on the sidelines, and Rarmani Edmonds-Green’s hip injury will be assessed after a scan.

    Josh Koroma ends Swansea’s unbeaten start as Huddersfield claim rare away win

    Huddersfield robbed Swansea of their unbeaten record in the Sky Bet Championship as they won on the road for the first time in three months at the Liberty Stadium.

    Josh Koroma clinched a 2-1 victory with his first goal for the club in the 67th minute after the home side cancelled out Harry Toffolo’s opener with an Andre Ayew penalty.

    Marc Guehi forced Ben Hamer into the first save of the match in the Huddersfield goal with a long-range shot in only the fourth minute. That was the first of four shots on target in the first half from the home side, who also forced nine corners

    Jamal Lowe almost opened the scoring in the 13th minute after being put through by Korey Smith, but Hamer made a brilliant one-handed save to keep the scores level.

    Having been forced back into their own half for nearly all of the opening 20 minutes, Huddersfield finally pressed forward and scored from their first corner of the match three minutes later.

    Juninho Bacuna exchanged passes in a short corner move with Carel Eiting, ran to the edge of the box, and fired in a fierce right-footed shot. Toffolo then guided the ball past Freddie Woodman in the home goal to give his side the lead against the run of play.

    Within a minute the hosts were almost back on level terms. Viktor Gyokeres fired in a shot-cross from the right and Lowe just failed by inches to get his toe to the ball to direct it into an empty net.

    Swansea were level in the 33rd minute after referee Tony Harrington ruled Hamer had impeded Smith as he went for an Ayew chip to the edge of the six-yard box.

    Huddersfield were not happy, but Ayew was delighted to be able to celebrate his 100th appearance for the club with his 32nd goal.

    Huddersfield, who had not won away since 1 July when they beat Birmingham 3-0, started the second half far more confidently and could have scored three times within 10 minutes.

    Twice Isaac Mbenza went close, one effort hitting the post, and then Eiting failed to hit the target when it seemed easier to score.

    Swansea then fluffed their lines at the other end as Ayew missed with a point-blank header from a Matt Grimes free-kick and then Lowe latched on to a poor back pass from Koroma and failed with two attempts to beat Hamer.

    The catalogue of misses was eventually broken in the 67th minute when Koroma hit the target from inside the box to give Huddersfield the points.
