- Head Coach Jan Siewert makes five changes to the Huddersfield Town XI
- Isaac Mbenza starts first game in two months
- Jonas Lössl also returns to face Watford today
Head Coach Jan Siewert has made five changes to the Huddersfield Town line-up for today’s Premier League game against Watford; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Having missed last weekend’s game at Spurs through illness, Isaac Mbenza returns to start his first game since picking up a calf injury at Chelsea on 2 February. He replaces Chris Löwe, who is among the substitutes this afternoon.
Karlan Grant is on the bench after missing training through illness in midweek, which means that Steve Mounié comes into the team to start his first game since the home clash with AFC Bournemouth on 9 March.
There’s also a change in goal today, where Jonas Lössl returns to the XI for his first start in four games. Ben Hamer drops out of the match day squad after picking up a knock in training, with Joel Coleman a substitute.
Aaron Mooy and Tommy Smith also come back into the team today, with Jon Gorenc Stanković and Florent Hadergjonaj on the bench.
18-year-old Matty Daly is a substitute again today, with Zanka and Danny Williams dropping out of the match day squad.
