Holding Leicester City to a draw over the course of the weekend, the Huddersfield Town fans in the Transfer Tavern are still happy about life in the Premier League.
Seven points from their first five games have delighted our resident Terriers and the punters propping up our bar are confident about their clash with Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup this evening.
So, reports from the Daily Mail have only added to the sense of optimism amongst our west Yorkshiremen today.
They’ve revealed that David Wagner is hopeful over the fitness of Kasey Palmer. Indeed, the Chelsea loanee was recently reported to have been ruled out for a number of months after picking up a hamstring injury while on England U21 duty.
However, the midfielder may return for Huddersfield before the end of October after discussions with Chelsea’s medical department over Palmer’s fitness, much to the delight of the drinkers in our bar.
”There have been further discussions now between Chelsea’s medical department and our medical department and another neutral specialist as well,’ Wagner said.
‘So he has an injury, a serious injury, maybe not as bad as we thought in the beginning, but I don’t expect him back before six to eight weeks.
‘It makes no sense now, where he has so many setbacks with his hamstring, always the same one, to rush something. We need him back consistently.’
It’s a big boost for Huddersfield, who will need all hands on deck, despite the strong start to their season. Indeed, things may get harder for Wagner’s men as the campaign drags on.
