Joel Pereira makes his competitive Town debut
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Stoke City
- Joel Pereira starts as Ben Hamer is unavailable
- Demeaco Duhaney and Isaac Mbenza also come in
Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made three changes to the Town side to face Stoke City in the Sky Bet Championship; 3pm kick-off at the bet365 Stadium.
Unfortunately, Ben Hamer is unavailable today, as he is currently in isolation for a confirmed contract/trace within his household.
As a result, Manchester United loanee Joel Pereira comes in for his competitive Town debut today!
There are two other changes to the starting XI, with Demeaco Duhaney replacing the injured Pipa (hamstring) and Isaac Mbenza returning in place of Adama Diakhaby.
Richard Stearman hits another career landmark today, as he makes the 400th league start of his career.
There are some additions to the bench this afternoon too, due to Hamer and Pipa’s absence and the extension to the number of substitutes.
Goalkeeper Ryan Schofield and defender Rarmani Edmonds-Green make their first appearance in a match day squad following injuries sustained in pre-season.
Juninho Bacuna makes a welcome return from illness to take a spot in the squad, with Aaron Rowe also an option for Corberán today.
As well as Hamer and Pipa, Carlos Corberán is also without the services of Tommy Elphick (knee), Alex Pritchard (ankle) and Romoney Crichlow (groin).
