David Wagner makes one change to the starting XI

- David Wagner names XI for game at Rotherham United
- One change as Philip Billing starts
- Tommy Smith making 100th Championship appearance

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made one change to his starting XI for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Rotherham United; 7.45pm kick-off at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

19 year-old Danish midfielder Philip Billing makes his first start in four games at the expense of Wales international Emyr Huws, who is among the substitutes tonight.

Otherwise the Terriers are unchanged from the starting line-up that won 2-0 at Blackburn Rovers at the weekend, which means Tommy Smith makes his 100th Sky Bet Championship appearance for Town.

Jamie Paterson missed Saturday’s victory in Lancashire with a hamstring problem, but he is welcomed back to the bench this evening; he takes young striker Flo Bojaj’s place in the squad.

Wagner is still without the services of goalkeeper Joe Murphy (shoulder) and midfielder Jonathan Hogg (knee).

Town’s team vs Rotherham United:
1. Jed Steer
2. Tommy Smith
3. Jason Davidson
4. Dean Whitehead
5. Mark Hudson (c)
17. Harry Bunn
18. Joe Lolley
21. Nahki Wells
24. Rajiv van La Parra
29. Philip Billing
33. Joel Lynch

Lloyd Allinson, Sean Scannell, Jamie Paterson, Karim Matmour, Martin Cranie, Emyr Huws, Kyle Dempsey
