Lewis O’Brien makes his competitive Town debut
- Huddersfield Town side named to face QPR
- Head Coach Jan Siewert makes one change to team from Monday
- Academy graduate Lewis O’Brien makes his senior Town debut
Midfielder Lewis O’Brien makes his competitive Huddersfield Town debut as the only change to the side for today’s Sky Bet Championship game at QPR; 3pm kick-off at the Kiyan Prince Community Stadium.
O’Brien, 20, had an impressive pre-season for the Club following his successful loan spell in League 1 with Bradford City last year and makes his first start in Town colours today, replacing the departed Aaron Mooy in the line-up.
The starting XI is otherwise unchanged from Monday night’s season opener against Derby County, with Juninho Bacuna fit after the calf issue that forced him off the pitch during the second half of the game against the Rams.
Summer signings Josh Koroma and Reece Brown are in the match day squad as substitutes today, with Isaac Mbenza making way.
Newest recruit Trevoh Chalobah, who trained with his teammates for the first time at PPG Canalside on Friday, is with the squad today as 19th man.
