14 December 2019

Danny Cowley makes two changes to the starting XI

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Wigan Athletic
- Danny Simpson makes his first start after injury
- Trevoh Chalobah also returns after three match suspension

Manager Danny Cowley has made two changes to Huddersfield Town’s starting XI for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Wigan Athletic; 3pm kick-off at the DW Stadium.

Having made his first appearance following a four-game absence with a hip injury as a substitute at Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night, Danny Simpson returns to the starting line-up today. He replaces Rarmani Edmonds-Green, who is a substitute today.

The second change sees Trevoh Chalobah come straight back into the side having served his three-game suspension. He replaces Steve Mounié, who joins Edmonds-Green on the bench.

Elias Kachunga makes his 100th league appearance for Huddersfield Town this afternoon, whilst Josh Koroma makes the 100th league appearance of his career.

Demeaco Duhaney, who missed Tuesday’s win at the Valley through illness, returns to the match day squad as a substitute. Youngsters Ben Jackson and Josh Austerfield aren’t in the 18 as a result.
