- David Wagner makes four changes to XI

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

As expected, Dean Whitehead makes his first start since picking up his knee injury at Birmingham City on 5 December in place of Jamie Paterson. It’s his first start in 17 fixtures.

Kyle Dempsey also starts this afternoon – his first since the home game against Cardiff on 30 January – in place of the injured Joe Lolley.

The third change comes at left back, where Jason Davidson also makes his first start since the defeat to Cardiff in place of James Husband.

Joel Lynch is back in the side in Wagner’s final change, replacing Martin Cranie.

With Lolley injured and Philip Billing suspended, there are placed among the substitutes this afternoon for Duane Holmes and Flo Bojaj.

Tommy Smith makes the 100th appearance of his career – and for Huddersfield Town – today.
