Burnley’s underwhelming Premier League campaign was dealt another blow last weekend when they suffered a 3-1 defeat away against Leeds United.
After Jack Harrison opened the scoring for the Whites six minutes before half time, the Clarets equalised thanks to a brilliant free kick from substitute Maxwel Cornet nine minutes after the break. However, it would be the hosts who would go on the claim all three points as a strike from Stuart Dallas and a late header from Daniel James condemned the visitors to their eighth league defeat.
Sean Dyche‘s men remain in the relegation zone, where they have been since mid-September, though they are only two points from safety with at least one game in hand on the rest of the league.
With Dyche in self-isolation after testing positive for coronavirus, Ian Woan will lead the team out for Saturday’s FA Cup tie, and he will be hoping that a brief break from league action against Championship opposition can help turn the club’s fortunes around, having failed to win any of their last seven top-flight matches.
The Clarets have progressed from the third round in each of the last three seasons, beating lower league opposition at Turf Moor on each occasion.
Burnley are unbeaten in their last seven meetings against the Terriers, including all four previous encounters in the Premier League – drawing three and winning once – and as the visitors have lost 10 of their last 12 FA Cup away games against top-flight teams, Dyche and co will be confident of securing a much-needed victory in front of their home supporters.
Burnley duo Nick Pope and Josh Brownhill are unlikely to feature this weekend as they continue their recovery from coronavirus, while Ashley Barnes and Connor Roberts are both sidelined with injuries.
The hosts will also be without summer signing Cornet, who is away on international duty with Ivory Coast for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Matthew Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ashley Westwood and Aaron Lennon could all drop out from the side which faced Leeds, with Phil Bardsley, Nathan Collins, Jack Stephens and Jay Rodriguez among those who are expected to start.
As for Huddersfield, quintet Naby Sarr, Rolando Aarons, Alex Vallejo, Jonathan Hogg and Danny Ward were all absent due to either injury or illness at the weekend and remain doubtful for Saturday’s game.
Striker Fraizer Campbell is also a doubt for the visitors after missing the last four matches with an injury.
