TEAM NEWS: READING vs TOWN

7 July 2020

Danny Cowley makes five changes to his starting XI

- Huddersfield Town side to face Reading
- Danny Cowley makes five changes
- Steve Mounié starts for the Terriers

Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley has made five changes to his starting XI for this evening’s Sky Bet Championship game against Reading; 6pm kick-off at the Madejski Stadium.

One of those comes in the back-line as Jon Gorenc Stanković returns to the starting XI in place of Richard Stearman; that’s Jon’s first start since Town’s match against Barnsley in mid-January 2020.

Andy King comes into the middle of midfield for Lewis O’Brien, whilst Emile Smith Rowe replaces Alex Pritchard. Another change comes out wide as Chris Willock returns in place of Elias Kachunga.

The other comes upfront as Steve Mounié starts! The Benin international will start his 50th game for Huddersfield Town this evening. Tonight's game comes a bit soon for Fraizer Campbell, who is managing the issue that kept him out at the beginning of the season restart.

There’s also a landmark for Karlan Grant today; he’s making his 150th career league appearance.

There’s a welcome return to the bench for young left-back Jaden Brown. Jaden had missed all of Town’s games since the season restart due to appendicitis.

Alongside Campbell, Danny Cowley is also without Tommy Elphick (knee) and Juninho Bacuna, who is serving his third and final game of his suspension.
