David Wagner is facing the media ahead of Huddersfield Town travelling to face Swansea on Saturday afternoon.

The head coach has had plenty of time to consider his plans for the 3pm kick off at the Liberty Stadium following the 4-nil defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at the John Smith's stadium two weeks ago.

Several players have been away on international duty and there is a lot at stake in the match with Swansea having lost their last two matches and Town hoping to bounce back after their last outing.

There is likely to be injury updates on striker Steve Mounie and midfielder Danny Williams.
