David Wagner makes three changes to Town’s starting XI
- Three changes to Huddersfield Town line-up to face Newcastle United
- Juninho Bacuna makes his first Premier League start
- Philip Billing and Florent Hadergjonaj also return to the team
Juninho Bacuna makes his first Premier League start in one of three changes to the starting XI for today’s game against Newcastle United; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The 21-year-old Dutchman has previously made three substitute appearances in the league for the Terriers, as well as one start in the Carabao Cup.
He is joined in midfield by Philip Billing, who comes straight back into the line-up after serving his one-match suspension for accumulating five yellow cards.
The injured Aaron Mooy and Danny Williams make way; both are suffering from knee injuries that will rule them out for the medium term.
The final change comes on the right side, where Florent Hadergjonaj returns to the line-up in place of the injured Tommy Smith (hamstring).
Thankfully both Terence Kongolo and Jonathan Hogg are fit to play today despite suffering slight issues in last weekend’s game at Arsenal.
Collin Quaner and Jon Gorenc Stanković step into the match day 18 and are among the substitutes today.
