Wagner makes three changes to starting XI
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made three changes to the starting line-up for today’s Premier League game against Brighton & Hove Albion; 3pm kick-off at the American Express Community Stadium.
The first change is enforced, with Elias Kachunga ruled out for the season due to the ankle injury picked up at Newcastle United last weekend. His place on the right wing is taken by Tom Ince.
David’s second change comes at right back, where Florent Hadergjonaj replaces Tommy Smith. With Smith a substitute this afternoon, the side will be captained by Jonathan Hogg.
Town’s final switch comes in attack, where top scorer Steve Mounié replaces Laurent Depoitre. The Benin international scored both goals in the 2-0 home win over the Seagulls on 9 December 2017.
Wagner is without the services of the injured Kachunga (ankle), Danny Williams (ankle) and Michael Hefele (knee).
