HUDDERSFIELD Town manager Simon Grayson says the cold snap has made preparing for Saturday's game at Watford more difficult than normal but that there are clubs in far worse positions.
With pitches at Canalside both frozen and at times snowbound, Grayson has made use of the indoor facilities available but pointed out: "The harder surfaces can cause trouble for players carrying little niggles.
"Obviously the surfaces aren't as large as outdoor pitches, so we've had to alter a few sessions accordingly, but at least we have the ability to work indoors, when a lot of clubs don't."
Grayson has winger Danny Ward, fit again after a knee injury and illness, pushing for inclusion against Watford, who have undersoil heating at Vicarage Road.
But centre-back Joel Lynch is still under treatment for a hamstring problem and looks set to miss a third game as Town seek a first league win in 12 Championship outings.
Meanwhile Town's trans-Pennine derby against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park has been brought forward 24 hours to Tuesday, April 16 (7.45).
