Hogg and Pritchard come into the side at the Hawthorns

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made two changes to his starting line-up for today’s Premier League game against West Bromwich Albion; 3pm kick-off at the Hawthorns.

As expected, Alex Pritchard – who was cup-tied for last weekend’s Emirates FA Cup game against Manchester United – returns to the XI; he replaces Tom Ince, who is a substitute.

Pritchard spent time on loan at today’s opponent, making three substitute appearances during the second-half of the 2015/16 Premier League campaign.

Today’s start is also the 150th appearance of his domestic playing career in all competitions.

The second change comes in central midfield, where Jonathan Hogg returns to the team in place of Philip Billing. The Dane travelled to the Hawthorns with the squad, but is unfortunately unwell.

Having impressed against Manchester United last weekend, Danny Williams starts his first Premier League game since the New Year’s Day match at Leicester City.

Wagner is without the services of Ryan Schofield (elbow), Sean Scannell (shoulder), Elias Kachunga (knee) and Aaron Mooy (knee), whilst Chris Löwe (hamstring) and Jon Gorenc Stanković (knee) are back in training after their respective injuries.
