Wagner makes two changes to the starting XI

- David Wagner makes two changes to starting XI
- Rajiv van La Parra & Kasey Palmer start
- Jonathan Hogg makes 200th career start

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

After sitting out the win at Ipswich Town before the international break, Chelsea loanee Kasey Palmer returns to the starting line-up. He replaces Dean Whitehead, who is among the substitutes today. Kasey’s inclusion is likely to mean that Aaron Mooy drops back to play his more familiar position alongside Jonathan Hogg in the holding midfield two.

The second change comes on the flank, where Rajiv van La Parra (pictured above) starts in place of Sean Scannell. Scannell drops out of the squad altogether today, so Harry Bunn is among the substitutes.

The aforementioned Hogg is making the 200th start of his career in all competitions this afternoon.

Town’s team vs Sheffield Wednesday:
1. Danny Ward
2. Tommy Smith
5. Mark Hudson (c)
6. Jonathan Hogg
9. Elias Kachunga
10. Aaron Mooy
15. Chris Löwe
17. Rajiv van La Parra
21. Nahki Wells
26. Christopher Schindler
45. Kasey Palmer

Substitutes:
Joel Coleman, Dean Whitehead, Harry Bunn, Tareiq Holmes-Dennis, Martin Cranie, Jack Payne, Michael Hefele
