Danny Cowley makes one change to starting XI

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Nottingham Forest
- Manager Danny Cowley makes one change to starting XI
- Steve Mounié returns in place of Josh Koroma

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

After illness restricted him to an appearance as a substitute at Wigan Athletic last weekend, Benin international Steve Mounié returns to lead the line against the Tricky Trees today. He replaces Josh Koroma in the 11.

Josh is joined among the substitutes by Jaden Brown, who makes a welcome return to the match day squad after missing seven games with the ankle injury he sustained at Brentford on 2 November. As a result, 17-year-old striker Kian Harratt drops out of the 18 today.

Jonathan Hogg makes his 200th league appearance for Huddersfield Town today, whilst his midfield colleague Trevoh Chalobah makes his 50th Sky Bet Championship start.

Top scorer Karlan Grant is making his 100th career start.

The Cowley brothers are without the services of Tommy Elphick (knee), Alex Pritchard (knee), Fraizer Campbell (hip), Collin Quaner (hip) and Lewis O’Brien (calf) today.
