No changes to starting XI
Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins has named an unchanged starting XI for the third successive game to take on Bolton Wanderers today at the John Smith’s Stadium; 3pm kick-off.
This means that Captain Peter Clarke will make the 500th start of his professional career this afternoon at centre back.
Elsewhere former Bolton man Danny Ward comes up against his former employers today; Ward turned professional at the Reebok Stadium and made two Premier League substitute appearances for the Trotters back in 2009.
There are two notable changes to the match day XI on the bench.
After an eight game absence due to a groin injury that forced him off at Birmingham City on 15 February, Joel Lynch returns to the squad; he replaces Murray Wallace.
The other change sees Harry Bunn’s place taken by a potential debutant in Philip Billing; the 17 year-old midfielder is a second year Academy scholar who joined the Terriers from Danish side Esbjerg in the 2012/13 season. He takes the number 29 shirt that was vacated by Liam Ridehalgh earlier this season.
