Unchanged starting XI for the Terriers
Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins has named the same starting XI for the third successive game ahead of tonight’s Capital One Cup Second Round game at home to Charlton Athletic; 7.45pm kick-off.
This should result in the Terriers playing in the 3-5-2 formation that has served them so well at the start of the current season.
Goalkeeper Alex Smithies will play behind three centre backs in Joel Lynch, Anthony Gerrard and skipper Peter Clarke. Ahead of them wing backs Jake Carroll and Adam Hammill will flank the central midfield trio of Jonathan Hogg, Oliver Norwood and Adam Clayton, with Martin Paterson partnering top scorer James Vaughan in attack.
Town’s team vs. Charlton Athletic:
1. Alex Smithies
