Wagner makes four changes to starting line-up

- David Wagner makes four changes to starting XI
- Martin Cranie, Dean Whitehead, Joe Lolley & Collin Quaner start
- Tommy Smith, Jonathan Hogg & Nahki Wells subs; Billing (groin) out

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made four changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game at Derby County; 5pm kick-off at Pride Park.

With midfielder Philip Billing ruled out by the groin injury picked up in Friday’s home win over Preston North End, Dean Whitehead comes in to skipper the side.

Jonathan Hogg is also rested to the bench this afternoon, with Joe Lolley recovering from the slight ankle issue that kept him out of the win over Preston North End to start today. That move will see Aaron Mooy drop back into his now familiar position in the central midfield duo.

Goalscorer from the bench on Good Friday, Collin Quaner, also starts for the first time since the Burton Albion game on 1 April. He replaces Nahki Wells, who is among the substitutes.

The final change comes at right back, where Martin Cranie makes a first appearance in seven games in place of Tommy Smith.

Wagner is without the services of Billing (groin), Jon Gorenc Stanković (knee), Izzy Brown (knee) and Kasey Palmer (hamstring) today.
