Wagner names starting XI for Emirates FA Cup replay
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has named his starting line-up for tonight’s Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round replay against Birmingham City; 7.45pm kick-off at St. Andrew’s.
Two players make their debuts in the competition; goalkeeper Jonas Lössl and defender Mathias Zanka. Alongside those, Aaron Mooy makes his first Emirates FA Cup start and winger Tom Ince makes his first competition appearance for the Terriers too.
Abdelhamid Sabiri plays for the first time since the first game against the Blues, whilst Sean Scannell is on the squad list for Town for the first time in a competitive game this season following his return from loan at Burton Albion; he’s a substitute tonight.
Wagner is without Elias Kachunga (knee), Danny Williams (hip) and Alex Pritchard (cup tied), whilst Laurent Depoitre and Christopher Schindler are not in the side due to knocks sustained at Manchester United. Jonathan Hogg is rotated out.
