Danny Cowley makes two changes to the starting XI

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Blackburn Rovers
- Manager Danny Cowley makes two changes to starting line-up
- Jaden Brown & Lewis O’Brien start; Jonathan Hogg out injured

Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley has made two changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Blackburn Rovers; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

After making his return from injury as a substitute in the previous home fixture against Nottingham Forest, 20-year-old defender Jaden Brown makes his first start since 2 November 2019 today. He replaces Florent Hadergjonaj, who is a substitute this afternoon.

The second change comes in midfield. Jonathan Hogg is unavailable due to the hip injury that forced him off at Middlesbrough on Boxing Day, so Lewis O’Brien completes his own return from injury with a start today.

There’s another welcome return today, with striker Fraizer Campbell back on the bench for the first time since injuring his hip at Bristol City in late November.

Captain Christopher Schindler is making his 150th competitive appearance for the Club this afternoon, whilst Danny Simpson faces one of his former clubs; he made 20 appearances for Rovers on loan during the 2008/09 campaign.

Tommy Elphick (knee), Jonathan Hogg (hip), Alex Pritchard (knee) and Collin Quaner (hip) are unavailable for today’s game through injury.
