‘Let’s hope Huddersfield display was a one-off’

Tony Pulis hopes the poor midweek display at Huddersfield was a one-off as Wednesday get ready for another Yorkshire derby, this time at home to Barnsley tomorrow.

Speaking at today’s press conference, Pulis said: “Fingers crossed, Huddersfield was just one of those games. The players came back in yesterday and were bright, they are together.

“They have worked well in training. If you look at the games, we deserve more points than what we have, we have made basic errors.”

Julian Borner is a doubt for the Barnsley game after leaving the field early on at Huddersfield with a head injury.

Pulis said: “With Julian, there is no fracture which is good news. That’s always the fear when you take a hit to the side of your head, he didn’t train yesterday and we’ll see how he feels today.”

Long-term injury casualty Chey Dunkley has trained all week and edges closer to being ready for first team action while Keiren Westwood is still ruled out with a groin problem.

We go into the game at the foot of thc Championship table and four points from the safety of 21st place.

Pulis added: “We have dusted ourselves off, we took a real punch on the jaw on Tuesday.

“But it’s not about that now, it’s about getting up again, rolling your sleeves up and throwing punches yourself again.”
