Huddersfield boss Danny Cowley is hopeful that full-back Danny Simpson could feature against Sky Bet Championship opponents Swansea on Tuesday.
Simpson suffered a hip injury during Town’s loss to Preston earlier this month, and he missed the 1-1 draw against Birmingham on Saturday.
But while Simpson could return, his fellow defender Jaden Brown faces further time out recovering from an ankle ligament problem.
Cowley has reported no fresh injury concerns following the Birmingham game.
Swansea head to Huddersfield on the back of a 1-0 home defeat against Millwall.
They will again be without French winger Aldo Kalulu, who has not featured in first-team action since August because of an ankle injury.
But he played for half of an Under-23s game in Swansea colours last weekend, suggesting that a first-team return is not far away.
Elsewhere, Swansea manager Steve Cooper continues to be without the services of injured pair Joe Rodon and Jordon Garrick.
