TEAM NEWS: TOWN vs LUTON

7 November 2020

Corberán makes two changes to the starting side

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Luton Town
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes two changes to the XI
- Carel Eiting and Adama Diakhaby return to the line-up

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made two changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Luton Town; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

After a slight problem due to a kick received in the away game at Birmingham City recently, Ajax loanee Carel Eiting returns for his first start in three games in central midfield today.

He is joined in the team by Adama Diakhaby, who last started the 3-0 away win at Millwall a week ago.

Carel and Adama replace Christopher Schindler and Isaac Mbenza, who are both among the substitutes this afternoon.

As a result, Jonathan Hogg will captain the side today.

There’s also a welcome appearance on the bench for Danny Ward, who appears on a Sky Bet Championship team sheet for the first time this season following the hamstring injury he suffered after the Carabao Cup game against Rochdale on 5 September. Romoney Crichlow makes way in the match day squad.

Unfortunately, Juninho Bacuna has not recovered fully from the illness that kept him out of the midweek game against Bristol City. He joins Tommy Elphick (knee) and Alex Pritchard (ankle) as being unavailable to Carlos Corberán for today’s game.
