Scannell returns after injury

- Sean Scannell returns to starting XI
- Ishmael Miller drops to the bench
- Butterfield makes 50th Town start

Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell has made one change to his starting XI for this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship game at Fulham; 3pm kick-off at Craven Cottage.

After missing Tuesday night’s draw with Brighton & Hove Albion due to an ongoing hamstring complaint, London-born Sean Scannell returns to the team for his second start of the season – replacing Ishmael Miller.

Ish drops to the bench, meaning there is no room in the 18 for Adam Hammill today.

Midfielder Jacob Butterfield starts his 50th game for Huddersfield Town in all competitions this afternoon. 

Town skipper Mark Hudson plays against the club where he started his career; he played three League Cup games for Fulham between 2000 and 2004. At Town, he hasn’t missed a single second of Sky Bet Championship action since joining the Club in August 2014.

13. Joe Murphy
