There will be at least one familiar face to welcome Huddersfield Town to Elland Road on Saturday.

The expected reunion with Mustapha Carayol, who spent the first part of the season with Town on loan from Middlesbrough before making a temporary switch to Leeds, is one of the more intriguing subplots of what is already a highly anticipated fixture between two Yorkshire rivals.

Carayol scored on his Leeds debut back in January and raked in the plaudits - but the stats suggest he has failed to hit the same heights at Elland Road that he did at Huddersfield.

Although Carayol has only made seven Championship appearances in Leeds white, compared with 15 in blue and white stripes, his contributions per game played have been significantly less.

According to Opta, Carayol created 1.67 chances per match for Town, which has dropped to 0.57 since his Leeds move.

In fact, he's been far less involved in each match since his switch across Yorkshire, touching the ball on average 29.86 times per game for Leeds compared with 35.6 times for Town - numbers which go a long way towards explaining his three league goals and two assists for Town.

At Leeds he has one league goal to his name and as yet no assists.

Fewer minutes under Steve Evans is hampering his impact for the Whites - Carayol has struggled for a regular starting berth and has not featured in either of the last two games (wins against Cardiff City and Blackburn).

However, the boss will surely be keen to harness the winger's additional motivation to shine against his former club.

David Wagner made the decision to send Carayol back to Middlesbrough in January, his first transfer window at the club, to free up squad space.

Elvis Manu has since arrived on loan from Brighton, while Rajiv van La Parra is on loan from Wolves until the end of the season before joining permanently in the summer.
