Powell keeps faith with same starting line-up

- Chris Powell selects unchanged starting XI
- Mark Hudson returns from injury to the bench
- Jamie Paterson & Philip Billing also named as subs

For the fourth successive game, Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell has named the same starting XI ahead of today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Wolverhampton Wanderers; 12.30pm kick-off at Molineux.

This means that on-loan winger Mustapha Carayol, pictured above, makes the 150th start of his career in all competitions, whilst Joel Lynch and Dean Whitehead continues their records of starting every Town game so far this term.

Striker Ishmael Miller is sure to get a lively welcome from the home faithful; he played for Wolves’ big rivals West Brom between 2007 and 2011!

There are three changes to the personnel on the bench this afternoon. 

Fit-again Club Captain Mark Hudson takes on-loan Joe Lolley’s place after a four game absence with an ankle injury.

The second change sees Jamie Paterson, who was ineligible to face his parent club Nottingham Forest last time out, take the place of striker Flo Bojaj; he picked up a slight groin issue in Monday’s Under-21 win over Ipswich Town.

The final switch sees 19-year old Academy graduate Philip Billing replace Kyle Dempsey among the subs.

Town’s team:
1. Jed Steer
3. Jason Davidson
4. Dean Whitehead (c)
7. Sean Scannell
10. Mustapha Carayol
11. Ishmael Miller
12. Elliott Ward
14. Martin Cranie
16. Emyr Huws
17. Harry Bunn
33. Joel Lynch

Lloyd Allinson, Tommy Smith, Mark Hudson, Jonathan Hogg, Jamie Paterson, Nahki Wells, Philip Billing
