Whitehead has made 19 appearances for the Terriers this season, having joined Huddersfield following his release from Middlesbrough in the summer.

He could miss as many as nine Championship games before February.

Victory at St Andrew's was Huddersfield's first triumph in six games and their first win under manager David Wagner.
