Fitness updates ahead of Terriers trip

Mowatt training Huddersfield

Valérien Ismaël has confirmed four first-team players are available for selection at Huddersfield after recovering from injuries.

Captain Jake Livermore and fellow midfielders Alex Mowatt and Jayson Molumby, as well as defender Matt Clarke, have all returned to training ahead of Saturday’s trip to face the Terriers at the John Smith’s Stadium (ko 3pm). 

Livermore missed Albion’s 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough two weeks ago, a game which saw Clarke substituted early in the first 45 minutes.

Molumby was withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad before their FIFA World Cup qualifiers, while Mowatt hasn’t featured since the Baggies' 1-0 win over Birmingham City in mid-October.

And the boss is delighted to have the quartet back in contention.

He said: “All the players apart from Dara O’Shea and Kean Bryan are back in training.

“It’s a good feeling for us to train with almost all of the players and we’re happy to have them back.

“It was important for us that they completed the week of work and the physical load we had for them.

“It gives us a better feeling and allows us to be even more ready for the game at Huddersfield on Saturday.”
