Danny Cowley makes one change to starting XI

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Charlton Athletic
- Manager Danny Cowley makes one change from Bristol City
- Trevoh Chalobah starts in place of injured Jonathan Hogg

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

Unfortunately, Jonathan Hogg misses out due to the impact to his knee that forced him off in the midweek win over Bristol City, so Trevoh Chalobah returns for a first start in six games on the back of his impressive performance against the Robins.

The starting side is otherwise unchanged from Tuesday’s victory, meaning top scorer Karlan Grant faces his former club for the second time as a Terrier.

There is another change among the substitutes this afternoon. Andy King has been ruled out with a slight hamstring issue today, so there are returns to the match day squad for Elias Kachunga and Collin Quaner.

This is a first appearance for Collin Quaner under the Cowley brothers; he’s not made an appearance since August 2019 due to a long-term hip injury.

Tommy Elphick (knee), alongside Hogg (knee) and King (hamstring), is unavailable to Danny Cowley today.
