- David Wagner makes two changes to starting XI
- Mark Hudson & Karim Matmour come in
- Jonathan Hogg makes 200th career appearance
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made two changes to the starting XI for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Nottingham Forest; 3pm kick-off at the City Ground.
With Jamie Paterson ineligible today as per the terms of his loan to Town from Forest, Algerian international Karim Matmour comes in for only his second Huddersfield start having recovered from a knock picked up at Preston North End last weekend.
The other change comes at centre back, where Club Captain Mark Hudson comes back to lead the side following his two game suspension at the expense of Martin Cranie.
Cranie is among the substitutes today, where Under-21 top scorer Flo Bojaj replaces William Boyle too.
Midfielder Jonathan Hogg is making the 200th appearance of his career in all competitions this afternoon, whilst Joel Lynch faces one of his former clubs; he made 75 starts and 15 substitute appearances for the Tricky Trees between 2008 and 2012.
