Joel Lynch is back in contention to play for Huddersfield Town against Rotherham United.
The 28-year-old centre-back hasn’t played since the 2-2 draw at Reading in previous manager Chris Powell’s last match at the helm.
New head coach David Wagner confirmed Lynch had not been included against Bristol City because he didn’t want him to miss a full day of training just to sit on the bench.
“Joel Lynch is a step further on than Elliot Ward, so if we have to make a change Joel would be first,” said Wagner, who has organised a final training session for the morning of the game.

“He has made the most of training and I think he will be with us.
“I didn’t have him with the squad on Saturday because it would have lost him a training day and Joel is a very important player for us when he is fit.
“He trained on Saturday and with the rest of the team on Sunday and he will be with the squad against Rotherham.”
