Juninho Bacuna comes in for the injured Danny Simpson

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Hull City
- Manager Danny Cowley makes one change to side that faced Brentford
- Juninho Bacuna replaces the injured Danny Simpson

Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley has made one change to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Hull City; 7.45pm kick-off at the KCOM Stadium.

Unfortunately, Danny Simpson sustained a contact injury in the Brentford game, so he misses out this evening. Juninho Bacuna comes into the side as a result.

The starting line-up is otherwise unchanged from the team that drew with the Bees at the John Smith’s Stadium 10 days ago.

Jonathan Hogg is now free from suspension, but he picked up a knock in training and is not available to the Cowleys tonight.

Fraizer Campbell returns to the KCOM Stadium for the first time since leaving Hull City and joining the Terriers in the summer. He made 114 appearances for the Tigers, scoring 33 goals, in two spells.

There is one new addition to the match day squad this evening, with Rekeil Pyke among the substitutes. The Academy graduate, now 22, has featured in several pre-season campaigns with the First Team, but would be in line for a competitive Town debut tonight. The forward made 20 appearances for Sky Bet League 1 side Rochdale in the first half of the current season.

Alongside Hogg and Simpson, Danny Cowley is without Tommy Elphick (knee), Alex Pritchard (knee), Collin Quaner (hip) and Matty Daly (hip) this evening.
