Danny Cowley makes three changes to starting XI
- Huddersfield Town side to face Birmingham City
- Emile Smith Rowe, Elias Kachunga and Fraizer Campbell start
- Steve Mounié returns to Town’s bench
Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley has made three changes to his starting XI for this evening’s Sky Bet Championship game at Birmingham City; 6pm kick-off at the St. Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium.
Two of the changes come in midfield, as Emile Smith Rowe and Elias Kachunga come back into the side in place of Alex Pritchard and Chris Willock.
The other is upfront as Fraizer Campbell is set to make his 300th career league appearance. The striker, who scored against Birmingham City at the John Smith’s Stadium earlier this season, will lead Town’s attack, a switch that sees Karlan Grant back on the left-hand side.
That means that Lewis O’Brien will partner Jonathan Hogg in the middle of midfield; Andy King is on the bench tonight.
There’s a welcome return on the bench for Steve Mounié, who has recovered from a knock that kept him out the games against Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest.
There are three players unavailable for Danny Cowley’s side this evening; Jaden Brown and Tommy Elphick are injured, whilst Juninho Bacuna is suspended.
