Harry Bunn looks set to return to the Huddersfield Town starting line-up.

The 23-year-old attacker scored a spectacular third goal of the season in the 2-1 home defeat by Bristol City after going on as a substitute.

And, with head coach David Wagner hinting at changes – Emyr Huws has all but been ruled out and penalty-taker Nahki Wells faces a late fitness test – then Bunn seems set for a second start under the German boss.

“Harry is one of the players I have in mind for a starting position,” confirmed Wagner.

“I said it a few days ago and, now we have games on Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday for the first time, we need each player in our squad and we always have to make sure we have players on the pitch who are fresh.

“It could be that we will make some changes in our first XI, because I like the team to be as fresh as they can.

“Maybe there are one or two players who, after Saturday, won’t be fresh enough to start the game, but this is why we have a squad with good quality.”

Wagner said he felt Bunn and fellow subs Kyle Dempsey and Ishmael Miller made a positive difference to the team and he was “very satisfied” with their contributions.

Bunn played in Wagner’s first match at the helm at Sheffield Wednesday but picked up a fifth booking of the season when Middlesbrough visited the John Smith’s Stadium.

He was an unused substitute for the 2-0 win at Birmingham, but then got on for ankle-injury victim Wells with 29 minutes left against Bristol City.
