Karlan Grant returns to start at the Liberty Stadium!

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Swansea City
- Karlan Grant returns from injury to start today
- Fraizer Campbell hasn’t travelled due to illness

Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley has made one change to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Swansea City; 3pm kick-off at the Liberty Stadium.

After a three-game absence with a side injury sustained in training, top scorer Karlan Grant returns to start today’s match. He replaces Fraizer Campbell, who hasn’t travelled to Wales with the squad due to illness.

The starting team is otherwise unchanged from the one that started last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Derby County, although there is a welcome addition among the substitutes.

Alex Pritchard is back in the match day squad for the first time since November 2019, with his absence down to a knee problem. He’s back on the bench this afternoon, replacing Rekeil Pyke.

Andy King starts against one of his former sides today; he scored twice in 11 appearances for the Swans during a loan spell in the 2017/18 campaign.

Alongside Campbell, Kamil Grabara (head) and Tommy Elphick (knee) are also unavailable today.
