Huddersfield have confirmed defender Joel Lynch has been forced to withdraw from the Wales squad for this week's World Cup qualifiers against Scotland and Croatia due to a knee injury.
The 25-year-old centre-half missed Huddersfield's win at Birmingham on Saturday after complaining of a pain during training on Thursday. It has since been confirmed he has small piece of bone floating in his knee.
"Joel will wear a brace for the next four or five days to help the healing process," Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson told the club's official website.
