TEAM NEWS: TOWN vs WOLVES

27 August 2016

Kasey Palmer makes first career start

- David Wagner makes two changes to Town's starting line-up
- Kasey Palmer in for his first professional start
- Jonathan Hogg returns; Whitehead & Scannell subs

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

After four appearances for the Club as a substitute, teenage Chelsea loanee Kasey Palmer makes his first professional start this afternoon. He’s in the team in place of Sean Scannell, who is among the substitutes today.

The second change comes in central midfield, where last weekend’s match-winner Jonathan Hogg returns in place of Dean Whitehead.

Town’s line-up is otherwise unchanged from the 2-1 Yorkshire derby win over Barnsley last weekend, which means that Rajiv van La Parra starts for the first time against his former club. RVLP made 57 appearances for Wolves between 2014 and 2016.

There's no Joe Lolley today, who is still sidelined with the foot injury sustained in the draw at Aston Villa.

1. Danny Ward
2. Tommy Smith
