Former Rotherham United loanee Josh Koroma, who scored against the Owls in the reverse fixture in December, is out until mid-April with an injury he picked up in that match.

The winger has scored six goals in 17 appearances for the Terriers this season.

Terriers boss Carlos Corberán confirmed key defender Harry Toffolo will also miss Wednesday’s clash with an ongoing back injury.

Carlos Corberan, manager of Huddersfield Town.

He previously made 119 successive league starts before a red card last month earned him a three-match suspension.

Huddersfield picked up just their second win in 15 games when they beat QPR 1-0 on Saturday thanks to Juninho Bacuna’s late winner, which helped ease their relegation fears.

There were no fresh injuries after that match, Corberán said on Tuesday.

He told a pre-match press conference: “We have the same players. Everyone involved in the previous game can be involved again.

“Toffolo and Koroma are far away still. Koroma was long-term and he's progressing well but I maybe expect him back in the last month, but we need to wait.”

“With Toffolo we expect to have him a bit before. We are seeing how he reacts.”

The Terriers are eighteenth in the Sky Bet Championship with 41 points from 36 fixtures.

Sheffield Wednesday are second from bottom and seven points from safety on 28 points, having played one game fewer than tomorrow’s opponents and Birmingham City in twenty-first place.
