David Wagner picks unchanged starting XI
- Wagner names unchanged starting XI
- Sean Scannell returns from injury to the bench
- Academy scholar Regan Booty also a sub
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has named an unchanged starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Reading; 7.45pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Wagner’s starting XI is the same as the one that began at the iPro Stadium at the weekend, although there are two changes to the bench.
Having missed Town’s last 11 games due to a knee injury, there is a welcome return among the substitutes for Sean Scannell this evening. He takes Brighton loanee Elvis Manu’s place.
The other switch comes as Karim Matmour misses out due to illness, with 17 year-old Academy midfielder Regan Booty making his first appearance in Town’s First Team match day squad. Hailing from Holmfirth, Regan has made 23 appearances for Frankie Bunn’s table-topping Under-21 side this season. He takes the number 37 shirt.
