Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell has made three changes to his starting XI for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game at Reading; 8pm kick-off at the Madejski Stadium.
With Dean Whitehead suspended having picked up his fifth yellow card of the season at Burnley on Saturday, 19 year old Danish midfielder Philip Billing makes the first start of his career. Ahead of tonight the Town Academy graduate has made two appearances as a substitute; his last coming at Charlton Athletic eight games ago.
The second change also comes in midfield, where Kyle Dempsey makes his first Championship start at the expense of Mustapha Carayol after an impressive cameo performance at Turf Moor three days ago.
The final change comes in attack, where Nahki Wells replaces Ishmael Miller; he hasn't traveled with the squad due to illness.
Having returned from loan spells at Scunthorpe United, Murray Wallace and Joe Lolley are among the substitutes this evening. James Vaughan also returns to the bench following his three match ban.
Joel Lynch is making his 100th start for Huddersfield Town tonight, whilst it’s Harry Bunn’s 50th appearance for the Club.
