Sports Mole looks ahead to this weekend's Premier League encounter between Huddersfield Town and Doncaster Rovers.

Both Huddersfield Town and Doncaster Rovers need to get back on track following their respective defeats before the international break.

The home side may have suffered a 2-1 defeat to Barnsley at the end of August, but they only have one other defeat to their name, with two victories and a draw from their first five matches of the season.

Saturday's opponents Doncaster have played one game less, but have only picked up maximum points from one fixture - a 2-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers on August 16 under manager Paul Dickov.

Jazz Richards could make his debut for Huddersfield this weekend while Keith Southern could also feature in the clash after completing a reserve match during midweek.

For the travelling side, Harry Forrester may enter the fold following his return to training, while Bongani Khumalo and Dean Furman are said to be available following their excursions during the international break.
