Huddersfield are waiting to find out the severity of the injuries suffered by Terence Kongolo and Christopher Schindler against Spurs. Kongolo was forced out of Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at the John Smith’s Stadium on a stretcher after just 30 minutes as he appeared to pick up a hamstring injury, while fellow defender, Schindler, was forced off in the second period with a knee problem.
Boss David Wagner revealed that they won’t know how bad either injury is until they are proeprly assessed this week.
He said: “My biggest concern is with Terence Kongolo. It looks like a serious hamstring injury.
“Christopher Schindler had a twist and has pain in his knee. The good thing is there is no fluid at the minute.
“But we have to make further investigations with both. We can do this at the beginning of the week.”
The Terriers’ winless Premier League start was extended to seven matches, but goalkeeper Jonas Lossl rated his side’s display as their best of the season.
Laurent Depoitre’s thumping first-half volley struck the crossbar, while Chris Lowe and substitute Isaac Mbenza both forced excellent saves from Paulo Gazzaniga.
“It’s difficult to stand here and say the same things every week because in the end we need points, we do,” Lossl said.
“But this was against Tottenham and it is another step in the right direction again, so we need to cling to that and continue this momentum.
“You can’t blame anybody today. We needed the luck as well, we didn’t have the luck, but with this effort the luck will come.”
