- Kasey Palmer returns as a substitute too

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has named an unchanged starting XI for today’s Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final against Reading; 3pm kick-off at Wembley Stadium.

1. Danny Ward
2. Tommy Smith (c)
6. Jonathan Hogg
9. Elias Kachunga
10. Aaron Mooy
15. Chris Löwe
17. Rajiv van La Parra
21. Nahki Wells
26. Christopher Schindler
37. Isaiah Brown
44. Michael Hefele
