Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made two changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship Yorkshire derby at Barnsley; 3pm kick-off at Oakwell.

The first change is enforced in attack, with Nahki Wells absent from the match day squad after hurting his ankle in training. As a result, Collin Quaner (pictured above) starts up front for the Terriers today.

The second switch is in midfield, where Wagner hands Dean Whitehead his 50th appearance for the Club at the expense of Philip Billing. After several starts recently, the Danish 20 year-old is among the substitutes this afternoon. 'Deano' captains the side this afternoon.

Izzy Brown is fit to start after the illness that forced him off during the midweek win over Reading.

There’s a change among the substitutes this afternoon, where Jon Gorenc Stanković replaces Mark Hudson.

Wagner is without the services of Joel Coleman (calf), Jonathan Hogg (groin), Sean Scannell (ankle), Nahki Wells (ankle), and Kasey Palmer (hamstring) today.
