Welcome to the Huddersfield Town live blog with all the latest news, views and transfer round-ups for Tuesday, October 18.

Here we'll bring you all the breaking news from the John Smith's Stadium and around the Championship grounds as Town get ready for their match against Preston North End tomorrow.

Town lost their unbeaten home record to Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend but the sharp turnaround means they can get back to winning ways just three days later.

We want to hear from you too. If you have any opinion on a matter we discuss in the blog or anything Huddersfield Town related, tweet us at @ExaminerHTAFC with your views and they could be featured and discussed.

Catch up on all the latest Town news with Doug Thomson, Mel Booth, Blake Welton and Rory Benson.
