Huddersfield are waiting to learn the full extent of Chris Lowe’s injury sustained in his side’s 1-1 home draw against West Ham. The defender was carried off on a stretcher shortly before half-time after landing awkwardly on his shoulder during a challenge and will be sidelined for several weeks.
The German left-back’s premature departure only added to boss David Wagner’s frustration after his side had failed to hold on to a deserved half-time lead.

Alex Pritchard’s first goal of the season was cancelled out by Felipe Anderson, who crashed home a 74th-minute rebound to rescue West Ham a point. “(Lowe) has a serious shoulder ligament injury,” Wagner said. “He’s in hospital at the minute and we’ll have to wait to see how serious it will be.
But he will be out for a few weeks, which obviously isn’t nice for all of us, especially him because he was in great form.”
Town could have been 3-0 up in the first half and Wagner had mixed feelings about the afternoon’s proceedings. “There’s a little bit of frustration today because in the first half we deserved to be in front.
We were very good I think,” Wagner added. “Even if I’m a little disappointed I can see the positives and I’m happy as well about this performance, with the spirit and intensity the players have shown.”
