Huddersfield Town injury mysteries impact first predicted line-up of Darren Moore era

There is little information to suggest how the new gaffer would approach the Coventry game, especially with four injury uncertainties. A change in management frequently necessitates a change in personnel.

In reality, predicting a new manager’s starting lineup can be difficult at best, especially when there are some injury concerns present.Therefore, we’ll just have to do our best to make educated guesses about how Darren Moore might approach his debut game in charge against Coventry City on Monday night.

David Kasumu and Josh Ruffels were forced off the field due to injuries at the start of the second half on Wednesday night, and Neil Warnock was uncertain of their conditions. Moore had not even met his players by Friday afternoon, so it seemed pointless to inquire.

Then, for the purpose of our prediction, we’ll additionally make the assumption that neither man is available.

As a result, we will stick with the back three of Matty Pearson, Michal Helik, and Yuta Nakayama who played the majority of the game against Stoke City, but hopefully with a different set of instructions after their man-marking duties in midweek left them all at sea. As it stands, we’re planning to start Jaheim Headley at left wing-back; if Ruffels or Tom Lees are able to play, we’d anticipate one of them to join Nakayama in the back three.

Sorba Thomas is therefore on the other team, however Tom Edwards will also be back in the mix after being ruled ineligible to play against his parent club.

A Hogg return would make the midfield selection a non-argument: he would be alongside Ben Wiles and Jack Rudoni. The front two is more debatable, but on the evidence of the past few weeks, Delano Burgzorg and Josh Koroma seem the two most in-form players and could be asked to pick up where they left off in an improved second-half showing in midweek.
