Steve Mounie set to miss Huddersfield’s home clash with Derby

Steve Mounie is unlikely to be involved when Huddersfield get their Championship campaign under way against Derby on Monday night.

The striker only resumed training on Thursday after his involvement with Benin in the Africa Cup of Nations. The trip to QPR on August 10 could see Mounie return to the squad.

Demeaco Duhaney is Town’s only injury absentee. The right-back has been struggling to overcome a hamstring problem and has not featured in the senior side’s pre-season preparations.

Summer signings Tommy Elphick, Reece Brown, Josh Koroma, Herbert Bockhorn, Isaac Mbenza and Kamil Grabara are fresh options for manager Jan Siewert.

Last season’s play-off finalists Derby, now managed by former Holland international Phillip Cocu, are expected to be without Jack Marriott.

The striker, who scored 13 goals during the 2018-19 campaign, has been hampered by a thigh injury during pre-season and will probably not be available despite returning to training.

Midfielder Duane Holmes (thigh) is set to miss out against his former club while Cocu will also be without Scott Carson (groin), George Thorne (calf), Andre Wisdom (knee) and Craig Forsyth (knee).

Summer recruits Graeme Shinnie and Kieran Dowell should be involved and there is a chance another new signing could arrive before Monday’s match.
