Fit-again Peltier replaces injured Hogg
Club Captain Lee Peltier returns from injury straight into the starting XI for today’s 3pm Sky Bet Championship kick-off against Charlton Athletic at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Pelts’ recovery after a two game absence with a groin issue is timely, as unfortunately Jonathan Hogg drops out of today’s team with a calf injury he picked up in the first-half of Tuesday night’s win at Reading.
On top of Peltier, there are also some welcome returns among the substitutes this afternoon. James Vaughan makes his first appearance in a match day 18 this season after an early season calf problem alongside Danny Ward, who has recovered from the back spasm he suffered on Monday. Youngsters Jordan Sinnott and Duane Holmes make way.
After his stellar performance in his full debut at Reading on Tuesday, 21 year-old Harry Bunn starts his first home game for the Terriers this afternoon.
