- Isaac Mbenza and Steve Mounié return to the substitutes’ bench

Head Coach Jan Siewert has made one change to the Huddersfield Town starting XI for today’s Premier League game against Leicester City; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Having appeared as a late substitute in last weekend’s game at Crystal Palace, Jon Gorenc Stanković returns to the team today. Juninho Bacuna makes way, taking his place among the substitutes today.

He is joined on the bench by the returning Isaac Mbenza. The Belgium Under-21 international has missed seven games due to the calf injury he picked up at Chelsea on 2 February, but returns to the squad today in place of youngster Aaron Rowe.

Steve Mounié also returns to the bench today, replacing Matty Daly; the Academy graduate having missed part of the training week through illness.

Adama Diakhaby (hamstring) is still unavailable, whilst Philip Billing (back), Demeaco Duhaney (thigh) and Matty Daly (illness) have just returned to training following their respective issues.
