TEAM NEWS: COVENTRY CITY vs TOWN

16 December 2020

Carlos Corberán makes six changes to the starting XI

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Coventry City
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes six changes from Bournemouth
- Jonathan Hogg back from injury to captain the side

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made six changes to the team that faces Coventry City in the Sky Bet Championship tonight; 8pm kick-off at St. Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium.

Having missed Saturday’s defeat at AFC Bournemouth due to the hip injury that forced him off in the previous game, Jonathan Hogg returns to skipper the side this evening.

He will be joined in midfield by Carel Eiting, whilst Pipa, Isaac Mbenza and Fraizer Campbell are also brought back in.

The final change comes in goal, where Ben Hamer is unavailable due to the groin issue that forced him off at the weekend. That means Ryan Schofield makes his sixth competitive appearance for the Club, with Joel Pereira on the bench.

Alex Pritchard, Adama Diakhaby, Jaden Brown and Aaron Rowe are among the substitutes too, whilst Danny Ward drops out of the squad completely due to a hamstring injury.

Matty Daly drops out of the squad this evening with a minor hamstring issue, with Demeaco Duhaney returning from his own small injury issue to join Ben Jackson as a substitute.

Corberán is without Hamer (groin), Tommy Elphick (knee), Richard Stearman (hamstring), Josh Koroma (hamstring), Ward (hamstring), Christopher Schindler (knee) and Matty Daly (hamstring). Kieran Phillips is also not risked due to a minor knee complaint.

Lewis O’Brien will make the 100th competitive appearance of his career tonight.
