Carlos Corberán makes four changes to starting XI
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Wycombe Wanderers
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes four changes
- Ryan Schofield starts alongside Bacuna, Diakhaby and Schindler
Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made four changes to the Town side for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Wycombe Wanderers; 7pm kick-off at Adams Park.
The first switch comes in goal, where England Under-20 international Ryan Schofield makes his first start of the season in place of Joel Pereira, who is a substitute tonight. Ben Hamer is still in isolation for a confirmed contract/trace within his household.
This is Ryan’s third start for the Club, having kept a clean sheet in his most recent against Middlesbrough at the John Smith’s Stadium in October 2019, and completes his return from his pre-season thumb injury.
Corberán’s second switch comes in defence where Club Captain Christopher Schindler makes his first start in three games in place of Richard Stearman, who drops to the bench this evening.
Juninho Bacuna returns to the side to make his 50th league start for the Terriers tonight, whilst Adama Diakhaby also comes back in to start. Demeaco Duhaney and Josh Koroma, who suffered a blow to his ribs at Stoke City on Saturday, make way and are on the bench.
Striker Kieran Phillips, 20, makes his first appearance in the First Team squad tonight after a prolific season for the B Team so far.
Ben Hamer (isolating), Pipa (hamstring), Tommy Elphick (knee), Alex Pritchard (ankle) and Romoney Crichlow (groin) are unavailable tonight.
