Grayson makes three changes to starting XI

Huddersfield Town Manager Simon Grayson has made three changes to his starting XI for today’s npower Championship game at Millwall; 3pm kick-off at the Den.

Striker James Vaughan picked up a knock in training this week, so Lee Novak comes into the starting line-up to partner Jermaine Beckford in attack.

Tuesday night’s goalscorer Adam Hammill comes into the line-up for his first start since the home win over Derby County on September 15 at the expense of Oliver Norwood.

Elsewhere fit-again Joel Lynch is restored to the line-up at the expense of Calum Woods.

Town look set to line up in their usual 4-4-2 formation this afternoon with goalkeeper Alex Smithies looking for his fourth clean sheet of the season behind Joel Lynch, skipper Peter Clarke, Anthony Gerrard and Jack Hunt. Adam Clayton and Keith Southern form the central midfield duo with wingers Ward and Hammill on either flank, whereas up front Jermaine Beckford will partner Lee Novak.

Town’s team vs. Millwall:
1. Alex Smithies
5. Peter Clarke (c)
6. Anthony Gerrard
8. Adam Clayton
9. Lee Novak
