- Academy winger Aaron Rowe makes his full professional debut
- Tommy Smith, Terence Kongolo, Chris Löwe & Karlan Grant also start
Head Coach Jan Siewert has made five changes to the Huddersfield Town side that takes on West Ham United in the Premier League at the London Stadium at 3pm, handing 18-year-old Aaron Rowe a first professional start.
The teenage winger comes into the team after his cameo appearance as a substitute in last weekend’s game against AFC Bournemouth, which was his senior debut. Top scorer for the Under-19 and EDT sides this season, the London-born winger replaces Elias Kachunga in the team today.
There are also returns to the team for Tommy Smith following his three-match suspension and Terence Kongolo, who missed last weekend’s game with a hip problem. Smith captains the side today as Christopher Schindler is unwell, with Zanka dropping to the bench.
Another Londoner, Karlan Grant, returns to the team to lead the line this afternoon, with Chris Löwe the final inclusion. Philip Billing and Steve Mounié are among the subs.
Jonathan Hogg (ribs), Adama Diakhaby (hamstring), Isaac Mbenza (calf), Danny Williams (knee), Laurent Depoitre (foot), Christopher Schindler (illness) and Demeaco Duhaney (hip) are unavailable today.
