- One change to starting XI from last league game at QPR

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Jan Siewert has made one change to the starting XI for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Fulham; 7.45pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Elias Kachunga makes his first league start of the season, after two substitute appearances and a start in the Carabao Cup. He replaces Adama Diakhaby, who is among the substitutes tonight.

Terence Kongolo starts his 50th game for the Club in all competitions.

Academy graduate Lewis O’Brien, 20, makes his competitive home debut for the Terriers, following on from his competitive Town debut at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

There are three further changes to the substitutes’ bench from that game, however. Trevoh Chalobah makes his first appearance in the squad for a league game since completing his loan move from Chelsea, where he is joined by Rajiv van La Parra and Steve Mounié. Josh Koroma, Reece Brown and Jon Gorenc Stanković make way.
