Huddersfield Town face a nervous wait on three of their injured players ahead of Friday’s Championship game against Barnsley after Levi Colwill and Danny Ward both missed the trip to Middlesbrough while Sorba Thomas was forced off injured at the break.
Ward’s injury was already known after he likewise departed after 45 minutes against Queens Park Rangers on Friday, but the extent or nature of the injury was unclear. It has now emerged that it was a hamstring injury, but Carlos Corberan explained after the game that a scan on the injury on Sunday did not reveal any serious injury.
The same is true of Chelsea loanee Colwill’s prognosis, though he himself is suffering from a slight hip issue. Corberan revealed he is unsure at this stage if either player will be able to play a part against Barnsley at the John Smith’s Stadium in Friday’s 7:45pm kick off.

Now also a doubt is Welsh winger Thomas, whose corner helped tee up Naby Sarr’s opening goal at Middlesbrough shortly before the break – with an extra bit of help from Jordan Rhodes to turn that ball back across the box. Rhodes later went on to add a second goal on the hour.
However, Thomas had been hurt while challenging for a 50/50 ball earlier in the first half and did not emerge for the second period, with Josh Koroma replacing him from the substitutes’ bench. Thomas then came back out sporting a large knee brace and carrying crutches for the post-match celebrations in front of the Town fans.
The severity of the injury is not known at this time but it would be a big blow for Town’s promotion hopes if he were to be ruled out for any length of time. Thomas is the only player to have played a part in every game in all competitions this season and has been their creator-in-chief this season, claiming 14 assists.
