David Wagner makes a single change to Town’s starting XI
- David Wagner makes one change to Huddersfield Town’s starting XI
- Zanka returns from suspension to play in defence
- Tommy Smith a substitute, so Jonathan Hogg captains the side
Head Coach David Wagner has made one change to Huddersfield Town’s starting XI for today’s Premier League game against Brighton & Hove Albion; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
As he confirmed in his pre-match press conference on Thursday, Zanka returns from suspension to the starting line-up today; it’s his 50th Premier League start. He replaces Tommy Smith, who makes way to the substitutes’ bench.
This means that fellow defender Jon Gorenc Stanković drops out of the match day squad this afternoon.
Goalkeeper Jonas Lössl makes his 50th Premier League appearance for the Terriers today, whilst Philip Billing makes his 50th start for the Club in all competitions.
Only Chris Löwe (shoulder) is unavailable to David Wagner through injury today.
