August 10, 2017 | 1 Comment

Huddersfield Town will travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday [Aug 12] for their first match in the English Premier League, however they will be without the services of Bermuda’s Nahki Wells who is out with an ankle injury.

The club’s website said, “Huddersfield Town will travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday 12 August for its first ever match in the Premier League.

“The dramatic Sky Bet Championship Play-Off final penalty shoot-out win means the Terriers will play top flight football for the first time in 45 years.

“David Wagner’s men will travel to Selhurst Park for the match that kicks-off at 3pm on the opening weekend of the 2017/18 Premier League season.

“Town’s first ever Premier League opponent, Crystal Palace, has been in the top flight of English football since 2013 after achieving promotion through the Championship Play-Offs.

“Huddersfield Town will be without the services of Jonathan Hogg and Nahki Wells who are both out with ankle injuries.”

Speaking on Wells injury, Huddersfield Coach David Wagner said, “He started pre-season very strongly and then he had some problems with his ankle.

“We were very happy we found out what this problem was – he had an operation 10 years ago and there was a screw left in his ankle and at the end of last week he had surgery to take the screw out and they were very happy.

“No he has no further issues, no problems. I think he will take three to six weeks till he is back so we are very happy that there is no major issue and we found a solution and the surgery was very successful.

“Now we will progress him in his rehabilition.”
