Norwich City vs. Huddersfield Town  Prediction and Match Preview

Amid a difficult start to life back in the Championship, Norwich City will aim to get back on track when they welcome Huddersfield Town to Carrow Road on Tuesday night.

The Canaries went down 2-1 to Hull City at the weekend, while the Terriers ended their losing streak with a 3-1 success over Stoke City.

Match preview

Norwich’s left-back crisis has only worsened over the past few days, as Smith witnessed makeshift defender Jacob Sorensen come off after rolling his ankle in the defeat to Hull, and the Norwich boss is unsure on the severity of his issue just yet.

Teenage midfielder Liam Gibbs came on to deputise for Sorensen at the weekend – Kenny McLean moved to left-back in the process – but with Sam McCallum and Dimitris Giannoulis already sidelined, Smith may consider using Ben Gibson on that side this week.

Sam Byram, Adam Idah, Isaac Hayden and Jonathan Rowe also remain out for the hosts, who should consider an attacking reshuffle as Onel Hernandez and Josh Sargent fight for their spots in the first XI.

As for the visitors, Schofield did not pick up any fresh concerns at the weekend, and only David Kasumu (hamstring) and Matty Pearson (foot) should miss out on Tuesday.

Chelsea loanee Tino Anjorin would certainly fancy his chances on the right-hand side amid Norwich’s defensive injury woes, but he was hooked for a more effective Duane Holmes just after the hour mark at the weekend.

Holmes’s 30-minute cameo saw him set up both Ward and Rhodes’s goals on Saturday, and the USA international could be the only change to an otherwise unaltered XI for the Terriers.

Norwich City possible starting lineup:
Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Omobamidele, Gibson; Ramsey, McLean, Nunez; Sargent, Pukki, Hernandez

Huddersfield Town possible starting lineup:
Nicholls; Turton, Nakayama, Lees; Kesler-Hayden, Rudoni, Hogg, Ruffels; Holmes, Ward, Thomas
