Huddersfield Town vs Millwall

Huddersfield Town return to Championship action as they prepare to entertain The Lions in this afternoon's three o'clock kick off.

Millwall head north with new manager Ian Holloway in tow, as Huddersfield prepare to hand club record signing Nahki Wells with a debut.

Huddersfield are also looking to complete their first double of the season having beaten Millwall by a goal to nil at The New Den earlier this season.

James Vaughan is expected to miss out again for The Terriers with Joel Lynch also rated doubtful.

Vital Quotes: Mark Robins

"Millwall will be up for it this weekend, but we are a good side and they will have to try and stop us.

"We won last time out and want to return to winning ways in the league.

"We did well down in Millwall early in the season and it was a great result for us. Those memories count for nothing now though, because they have a new manager with fresh ideas and they will be a different challenge."

Huddersfield Town Team News:

James Vaughan is likely to miss out despite returning to training.

Peter Clarke remains sidelined with a knee injury.

Joel Lynch will face a late check as he is still struggling with a hip injury.

Player to watch: Nahki Wells

Nahki Wells is bound to get a home debut today, and whilst he may not start, many expect him to feature and score!

No Pressure then Nahki!!

This season Tierney has officiated 18 matches, dishing out 59 yellow cards and 8 red's, the red card tally already being double what he handed out in the previous season! His most recent visit to the John Smiths stadium was this season as he took the goalless draw with Doncaster, handing out 3 yellow cards on that occasion. His last Championship game was a 3-0 victory for Middlesborough over Reading, where he booked 6 players and dismissed one.
