Powell makes three changes to starting XI

Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell has made three changes to his starting XI for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Blackpool; 12.15pm kick-off at Bloomfield Road.

Nahki Wells has a slight groin issue and will not be risked, so James Vaughan returns to the starting line-up to partner ex-Blackpool man Ishmael Miller in attack.

Manchester United loanee Reece James is fit after missing last weekend’s game, so he replaces youngster Joe Wilkinson in the team.

The final change sees Joe Lolley - scorer as a sub in Town's last game - start at the expense of Sean Scannell.

With Wilkinson and the injured Jonathan Hogg not on the bench, there are places for Development Squad members Philip Billing and William Boyle.

Conor Coady makes the 100th appearance of his domestic career this afternoon, whereas fellow midfielder Oscar Gobern starts a sixth successive game for the first time in over two years.

Town’s team vs Blackpool:
1. Alex Smithies
3. Reece James
4. Mark Hudson (c)
8. Jacob Butterfield
9. James Vaughan
10. Conor Coady
11. Ishmael Miller
18. Joe Lolley
27. Tommy Smith
28. Oscar Gobern
33. Joel Lynch

Joe Murphy, David Edgar, Sean Scannell, Murray Wallace, Philip Billing, Harry Bunn, William Boyle
