Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has kept faith with the starting XI that faced Middlesbrough last weekend for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Birmingham City; 3pm kick-off at St. Andrew’s.
The only changes to the match day 18 come on among the substitutes, where three recent absentees return. Mustapha Carayol (ineligibility) and Harry Bunn (suspension) take the places of Jason Davidson and Duane Holmes, whilst Ishmael Miller is back in the squad after a four game injury absence in place of Flo Bojaj.
Wales international Emyr Huws starts today against a side that he made 17 starts for on loan from Manchester City between January and May 2014, whilst winger Joe Lolley was also on the books of the Blues until the age of 16; he scored in the corresponding 1-1 draw last season.
Sean Scannell is making the 150th league start of his career this afternoon.
