Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán says winger Rolando Aarons will miss Saturday’s game against Wycombe Wanderers with a hamstring problem.
According to the Head Coach, the January signing picked up the injury in the latter stages of Wednesday’s training session and will subsequently miss the weekend’s visit of the Chairboys.
Speaking in his pre-Wycombe press conference, Carlos gave an update on the situation.
“Rolando Aarons felt something two days ago, I don’t expect to have him in the next weeks,” he said.
“Unfortunately, in the last action of Wednesday, he got injured. What we need to do is always be thinking of the solution.
“No doubt (there is a chance for a player like Sorba Thomas to play).
“He is going to be one of the options we have in attack now.”
Another attacking option the Terriers will be without on Saturday is Danny Ward who Carlos expects to be back on the training pitch next week.
“Danny Ward, we are moving into the next week with his recovery to training. He felt an issue with his recovery,” he explained.
“We expect him to be back on Monday. He won’t be available this weekend.”
During his pre-match virtual meeting with the media, Town’s Head Coach also gave an update on the Terriers’ injured centre-backs and where they are at in their respective recoveries.
“(Richard) Stearman had a positive week. He’s not making all the training but at the same time he is starting to work with the team and his progress can be positive. He is not ready to start a game yet.
“Both (Tommy Elphick and Rarmani Edmonds-Green) are training some days, but they cannot train every day.
“We know that Elphick is a longer-term injury. Edmonds-Green is different but we hope in the next weeks he can come back into the group.
“(Christopher Schindler’s) process didn't work the way we expected it to work.
“In the next week he is going to analyse the situation of his knee with the specialist and see what to do next.
“He is the captain of the team, he is very important for the dressing room,” he added.
“Unfortunately, this season is not going the way we wanted but we need to accept the situation and see what the opinion of the specialist is.”
Town will also be without left-back Harry Toffolo as he serves the first of his three-match suspension during Saturday’s game against Wycombe following his red card last weekend.
The Spaniard says that Lewis O’Brien will move into the defence to cover the absence of Toffolo.
“Lewis O’Brien can replace Harry Toffolo as a left-back. He is a player that I think can adapt to that position.
“(Jaden) Brown had a concussion in the last game with the B Team and he is going to recover too late to train with the group. Therefore, the best player I think that can fill this position in this situation is Lewis.”
