Danny Cowley makes three changes to Terriers’ line-up
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Barnsley
- Manager Danny Cowley makes three changes to starting XI
- Grabara, Bacuna and Campbell come into the team
Manager Danny Cowley has made three changes to the Huddersfield Town side for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Barnsley; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The first comes in goal, where Kamil Grabara has recovered from the illness that kept him out of the squad for the midweek draw against Middlesbrough. He starts today, with Ryan Schofield taking a place on the bench. Joel Coleman drops out of the match day squad as a result.
Juninho Bacuna is rewarded for his excellent recent form with a place in the team today; his first start under Cowley and first since the home game against Fulham in August. He replaces Trevoh Chalobah, who is among the substitutes.
Town’s final change comes in attack, where Huddersfield-born Fraizer Campbell returns for his first start in four games at the expense of Adama Diakhaby.
Lewis O’Brien is making the 50th league appearance of his career today.
Alex Pritchard makes a welcome return to the substitutes’ bench today, with Isaac Mbenza making way.
