Side unchanged from win over Hull City
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Blackburn Rovers
- Manager Danny Cowley names an unchanged starting XI
- Alex Pritchard returns from injury to take a place on the bench
Manager Danny Cowley has named an unchanged starting XI for this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship game against Blackburn Rovers; 12.30pm kick-off at Ewood Park.
The only change to the match day squad from the game a fortnight ago comes amongst the substitutes, where Alex Pritchard makes a welcome return after a five game absence with a knee injury. He replaces Isaac Mbenza, who hasn’t travelled to Darwen today.
Cowley is without the services of Terence Kongolo (calf), Herbert Bockhorn (hamstring) and Collin Quaner (hip) this afternoon.
A couple of starting players hit career milestones today. Jonathan Hogg makes the 300th start of his career, whilst former Rovers loanee Danny Simpson makes his 350th start. Simpson made 12 appearances for today’s opposition during the 2008/09 campaign.
