Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made two changes to his starting XI for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Sheffield Wednesday; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

After scoring his first goal in English football in the team’s 4-1 win at Leeds United last time out, Karim Matmour makes his sixth Huddersfield Town start today at the expense of Jamie Paterson.

The other change also comes in the attacking areas, where another of the goal-scorers at Elland Road – Harry Bunn – replaced Rajiv van La Parra.

The match day 18 is otherwise unchanged from the West Yorkshire derby victory.
