Wagner rotates his side for second game in 48 hours

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made five changes to the starting XI for today’s Premier League game at Leicester City; 3pm kick-off at the King Power Stadium.

One of the changes hands a first Premier League start to Joe Lolley (pictured), who comes into the starting line-up for the first time following three successive substitute appearances. He replaces Collin Quaner, who is fit enough to take a place on the bench after being withdrawn against Burnley 48 hours earlier with a dead leg.

Having been rested against the Clarets, Chris Löwe returns to the team too. He replaces Scott Malone, who is on the bench today.

There’s a switch at the other full back position too, with Club Captain Tommy Smith replacing Florent Hadergjonaj; he’s also among the subs.

Danny Williams comes into midfield in place of Jonathan Hogg, whilst Steve Mounié replaces Laurent Depoitre in attack.

With Löwe back in the squad, Michael Hefele drops out of the 18-man match day squad.

Philip Billing (ankle), Elias Kachunga (knee) and Jon Gorenc Stanković (knee) are still unavailable through injury.
