Terriers suffer Simpson blow

Published Add your comment

Huddersfield striker Robbie Simpson faces an extended spell on the sidelines after scans revealed he has torn a thigh muscle.

Simpson, who has missed the Terriers' last three matches, was sent for a scan when his recovery was taking longer than expected and results have revealed a grade two tear, which means a further month at least in the treatment room.

The 24-year-old has made only three league starts for Lee Clark's side since joining from Coventry in a £300,000 deal in the summer.

Clark could be short of two strikers for Saturday's FA Cup first-round clash with Dagenham & Redbridge at the Galpharm Stadium, with Lee Novak awaiting the results of a scan on the shoulder injury he sustained in Sunday's win at Oldham.
