January loan signing Jason Puncheon makes his league debut for Town as one of two changes to the last Premier League line-up for today’s game at Cardiff City; 3pm kick-off in Wales.
The experienced midfielder is joined in the starting XI by Germany international Erik Durm, with Terence Kongolo and Isaac Mbenza dropping to the bench.
Having served his one-match suspension by missing last weekend’s Emirates FA Cup game at Bristol City, Christopher Schindler starts again today.
Philip Billing makes his 50th league start for the Terriers today, whilst striker Steve Mounié makes his 50th appearance for the Club in all competitions.
Club Captain Tommy Smith also makes a welcome return to the substitutes’ bench today having recovered from his recent hamstring injury.
David Wagner is still without the services of Aaron Mooy (knee), Danny Williams (knee) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (collarbone).
