One change made to the starting XI

- One change made to the Huddersfield Town XI
- David Wagner restores Rajiv van La Parra to the starting line-up
- Terence Kongolo (hamstring) out – but Christopher Schindler starts!

Rajiv van La Parra returns to the starting XI as the single change to the Town side that faces Burnley in the Premier League today; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

RVLP replaces his countryman Terence Kongolo, who has been ruled out for an estimated four to five weeks with the hamstring injury picked up against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

The starting line-up is otherwise unchanged from that game against Spurs, but there are two changes among the substitutes. Elias Kachunga and Adama Diakhaby are back in the match day squad, with Kongolo and fellow injury victim Tommy Smith (groin) making way.

Wagner is still without the services of Ramadan Sobhi (knee) and Danny Williams (knee), whilst Abdelhamid Sabiri also has a slight problem with his ankle.

Jonathan Hogg skippers the side from midfield again today; he played under Burnley manager Sean Dyche whilst at Watford during the 2011/12 season.
