Jamie Paterson is an injury doubt for David Wagner as he prepares for Huddersfield Town's trip to Blackburn Rovers.

The head coach revealed the on-loan Nottingham Forest forward has problems with his hamstrings and could well miss out at Ewood Park.

That's a blow after the 24-year-old scored and produced a bright display in last Saturday's 2-2 home draw with Hull City .

Paterson has netted seven times in 32 games so will be a miss for Wagner as he chases his 10th Championship win in charge of Town.

The boss has versatile Kyle Dempsey pushing for a recall after a calf problem, but midfielder Jonathan Hogg is still a couple of weeks off a comeback after a knee injury.

Both 19th-placed Town and Blackburn, who are three places and a point better off, are seeking a first win in four games.

"This is a new match and a new challenge, but our target is the same, to get three points and push higher up the table," said Wagner.

"We have a lot of respect for Blackburn, who have a good home record and pose a danger from set-pieces.

"We have to go there knowing what we need to do to pose them problems, and if we perform to our maximum, we know we can get the result we want."

Wagner hinted that winger Rajiv van La Parra will make a third Town start, saying: "He is still settling in but he is on his way after playing well against Hull.

"He lasted longer than I thought he would, and hopefully he can confirm last week's performance."
