Huddersfield Town defender Tommy Elphick is set to have knee surgery next week.

The 32-year-old suffered ligament damage in the first half of Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Preston North End.

Elphick has made 14 appearances for the Terriers since joining from Aston Villa in the summer.

"Off the back of his operation we will have a clear idea on how long he will be out of action for," boss Danny Cowley told the club website.external-link
