23 April 2016

Three changes to the starting line-up

- David Wagner makes three changes to Town's starting XI
- Kyle Dempsey, Emyr Huws & Jamie Paterson start
- Mark Hudson makes 400th career league appearance

Head Coach David Wagner has made three changes to his starting XI for today’s Sky Bet Championship game at home to Birmingham City; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The first comes at right back, where 20 year-old Kyle Dempsey comes in for Tommy Smith to make the 50th league start of his career.

Philip Billing misses out due to a calf injury this afternoon, so former Birmingham City loanee Emyr Huws returns to the starting line-up in central midfield.

The final switch comes in the number 10 slot, where Jamie Paterson makes his first start in three games at the expense of Harry Bunn.

With Billing dropping out of the match day squad, striker Flo Bojaj is among the substitutes after scoring against the Blues at Under-21 level in midweek.

Huddersfield Town skipper Mark Hudson makes the 400th league appearance of his career today, whilst top scorer Nahki Wells is making his 100th Sky Bet Championship appearance for the Terriers.
