Huddersfield Town are now just days away from hosting their first match of the season as they prepare to take on Burnley in the Championship this Friday night.
The season opener will be Danny Schofield’s first competitive match in charge after Carlos Corberan stepped down at the start of the month, heading into the match off the back of a mixed bag of results in pre-season.
While the departures of Lewis O’Brien and Harry Toffolo will certainly be a blow ahead of their clash with the Clarets, they are also thought to be sweating on the fitness of Matty Pearson, who limped off injured against Bolton Wanderers at the weekend.
