Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made three changes to his starting XI for today’s Sky Bet Championship game at Brighton & Hove Albion; 3pm kick-off at the American Express Community Stadium.
After missing the midweek Emirates FA Cup game with a knock to the ankle, Harry Bunn returns to start in place of Kyle Dempsey, who hasn’t travelled to Sussex due to knee and hamstring issues.
As expected, loanee Jed Steer returns to replace Joe Murphy in goal after not being allowed to play in the Emirates FA Cup at Reading.
The third change comes in midfield, where the suspended Jonathan Hogg’s place is taken by Martin Cranie.
Midweek signing Karim Matmour is among the substitutes today, but Ishmael Miller is not; he isn’t in Brighton due to a hamstring injury.
