Manager Danny Cowley has handed Huddersfield Town debuts to January signings Harry Toffolo, Richard Stearman and Emile Smith Rowe in today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Brentford; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
24-year-old full back Toffolo, who completed his permanent transfer from Lincoln City on Friday, comes into the team in place of Jaden Brown, who is a substitute today. In doing so, Toffolo makes the 150th league appearance of his career.
Richard Stearman will also make his debut for the Club, replacing Jon Gorenc Stanković who is among the substitutes.
The final switch comes further up the pitch, where Arsenal loanee Emile Smith Rowe also starts. The 19-year-old replaces Juninho Bacuna, who is also a substitute today.
Town’s other January signing, Andy King, is on the bench this afternoon. As a result, Josh Koroma and Demeaco Duhaney drop out of the match day squad alongside Rarmani Edmonds-Green, who has left the Club on loan, and the injured Matty Daly (quad).
Tommy Elphick (knee), Jonathan Hogg (suspension), Alex Pritchard (knee) and Collin Quaner (hip), alongside Daly, are unavailable to Danny Cowley today.
