Preview: Albion v Huddersfield

20 December 2013

Head coach Oscar Garcia will be forced into at least one change after Craig Conway's short-term loan expired after last weekend's 1-0 win at Middlesbrough. 

Oscar has various options to replace Conway, with Kazenga LuaLua and Will Buckley available for tomorrow's match against Huddersfield at the Amex (kick-off 3pm). 

Gordon Greer isn't expected to recover from the calf problem in time for tomorrow and Saturday may also come too soon for Andrea Orlandi; Craig Mackail-Smith and Will Hoskins are sidelined until the New Year. 

Leo Ulloa made his long-awaited return, coming off the bench at the Riverside Stadium last week; goalkeepers Tomasz Kuszczak and Casper Ankergren are both back in training. 

Meanwhile Andrew Crofts and Inigo Calderon will be hoping for a white Christmas in order to avoid a one game ban; the pair have each collected four yellow cards, but the ban threshold rises to ten bookings on 31st December. 

Huddersfield could be without Jonathan Hogg (hip) and James Vaughan (ankle) having both missed the loss against Reading last week.
 
Meanwhile Murray Wallace is expected to deputise for former Albion defender Joel Lynch, who is suspended after his red card last weekend.
