Manager Danny Cowley has made four changes to the Huddersfield Town side for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Birmingham City; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Alex Pritchard makes his first start under the Cowleys today following his long injury lay-off today, which means he takes his career total to 200 appearances in all competitions.
‘Pritch’ is joined in the side by Jon Gorenc Stanković; the Slovenian making his first league start of the campaign after coming off the bench at Preston North End in the previous match.
Jonathan Hogg returns as expected after serving his one-match suspension at Deepdale, whilst Fraizer Campbell also comes back into the side after a one game absence.
Tommy Elphick (knee) and Danny Simpson (hip) are not available today, whilst Terence Kongolo and Adama Diakhaby drop to the bench. They are joined by Joel Coleman and Matty Daly as substitutes this afternoon, with Ryan Schofield and Kian Harratt making way.
Jaden Brown (ankle) and Collin Quaner (hip) are unavailable today.
