Two changes to the Terriers’ starting XI- David Wagner makes two changes for Leeds United game
- Harry Bunn & Jack Payne come in
- Nahki Wells & Kasey Palmer make way; Sean Scannell injured
Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month David Wagner has made two changes to his starting XI for today’s Yorkshire derby against Leeds United; 3pm kick-off at Elland Road.
After an impressive performance in the behind-closed-doors friendly at Liverpool FC last week, Jack Payne comes into the team to make his fourth Town start. He replaces Kasey Palmer, who is among the substitutes.
The second change comes on the wing, where Harry Bunn makes his first start of the 2016/17 campaign at the expense of Nahki Wells, who is also on the bench today. He is likely to play on the wing, with Elias Kachunga set to move back into the striking berth.
Sean Scannell isn’t part of the squad due to a hip injury, so Slovenian Under-21 international Jon Gorenc Stanković is a substitute at Elland Road.
