Huddersfield Town - Championship Football - 17 May 2017

Huddersfield will recall goalkeeper Danny Ward in place of Joel Coleman after he missed Sunday's goalless first leg through suspension.

Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy was amongst Huddersfield Town's best players but was unable to break the deadlock against Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship's promotion play-offs.

Although they created little with no shots on target, manager Carlos Carvalhal will be pleased with how his side soaked up the pressure and kept their positional discipline throughout.

The 0-0 draw in Sunday's first leg at the John Smith's Stadium was the first time Wagner has avoided defeat against Carvalhal.

The Owls have unfinished business in the playoffs after Wednesday fans journeyed down to Wembley in their tens of thousands only to see a half empty Hull section celebrating a 1-0 win. It is game on, it's 0-0 at half-time.

The Owls' most likely match-winner.

"If we get another clean sheet, we will definitely score goals with the players we have got in the dressing room".

Chances were at an absolute premium in the first leg, Izzy Brown clipping the bar for Huddersfield the closest that either side came to a breakthrough, and I expect this to be another tight contest.

The Terriers boss believes the prospect of extra-time would be "more of an advantage than a disadvantage" for a Huddersfield side that pride themselves on high fitness levels, while Wagner was quick to note the dreaded shoot-out scenario is not so daunting back in his homeland.

And despite ending the season on a bit of a whimper, they're still in their play-off semi-final tie against Sheffield Wednesday and have plenty to look forward to in the future.

David Wagner's men put together an outstanding season which saw them win 25 of their 46 league matches, and thus finish fifth in the division.

The Owls have lost three of their last eight matches on their own turf, including against fellow play-off semi-finalists Reading and Fulham during the run-in, so there must be value in Huddersfield as the big outsiders in this contest.

There is a good working relationship between Dejphon and Carvalhal and it was very telling that Carvalhal described the Thai businessman as the "the best chairman of my career" in a recent interview on Sheffield Live TV.

Carvalhal said: "We came here to make sure the second game was alive, we did that and now we will play at home and it will be a final".

'It is a positive result, if you go away in the play-off semi-final and you return to play the home game at 0-0, it is very, very positive, ' he said.

Huddersfield were last in the top flight in 1972.
