Two changes to the Terriers’ line-up today
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Middlesbrough
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes two changes to the XI
- Josh Koroma returns alongside Richard Stearman
Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made two changes to the Huddersfield Town side for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Middlesbrough; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
As Corberán explained in his pre-match press conference on Friday, Club Captain Christopher Schindler is following concussion protocol after his head injury sustained at Wycombe on Tuesday night and is unavailable today. As a result, Richard Stearman returns to the side.
The other change comes out wide, where top scorer Josh Koroma (pictured above) comes back into the team after a bang on the side at Stoke last weekend confined him to the bench at Adams Park in midweek. Adama Diakhaby makes way.
With Schindler not in the match day 18, B Team full back Aaron Rowe comes into the match day squad as a substitute.
Today marks the first time that goalkeeper Ryan Schofield starts successive games for the First Team, whilst Jonathan Hogg comes up against his hometown team, where he spent time in their Academy as a youngster.
Corberán is without the services of Pipa (hamstring), Tommy Elphick (knee), Alex Pritchard (ankle), Christopher Schindler (concussion protocol) and Romoney Crichlow (groin).
