Team News: Adam Clayton, Martin Paterson miss Wigan Athletic trip

Adam Clayton and Martin Paterson miss Huddersfield's trip to Wigan Athletic in the Championship amid reports of a training ground bust-up.

Huddersfield Town manager Mark Robins has once again omitted Adam Clayton and Martin Paterson from the matchday squad for the visit to Wigan Athletic this afternoon.

The duo were excluded for the 3-2 victory over Leeds United last week in light of reports that the pair were embroiled in a scuffle on the training ground.

Robins initially cited "tactical reasons" as the motive behind their omission, but both are poised to miss out again having failed to make the squad for the trip to the DW Stadium.

Jon Stead, who fired the winner against Leeds, continues to deputise for leading goalscorer James Vaughan, who serves the second of his three-match ban, while Duane Holmes drops to the bench in favour of Oliver Norwood.

Meanwhile, Wigan boss Owen Coyle has named two changes to his starting lineup following the 0-0 draw with QPR in midweek.

Midfielder Ben Watson comes into the team at the expense of James McArthur, while there is also a starting berth for Marc-Antoine Fortune, who replaces Grant Holt.

Wigan Athletic: Nicholls; Shotton, Boyce, Perch, Barnett; McCann, Watson, Powell, McManaman, Fortune; Gomez

Huddersfield Town: Smithies; Richards, Clarke, Dixon, Lynch; Hammill, Hogg, Southern, Norwood; Ward, Stead
