- Huddersfield Town side named to face Rotherham United
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes two changes to starting XI
- Naby Sarr and Carel Eiting make their first Town starts

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has handed first starts to Naby Sarr and Carel Eiting in today’s Sky Bet Championship game at Rotherham United; 3pm kick-off at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

It’s a Town debut for Frenchman Sarr, who adds his considerable presence to the team at centre back in place of Romoney Crichlow. The Academy graduate is among the substitutes for the Terriers this afternoon.

Eiting replaces Alex Pritchard, who misses out with a quad injury. The Ajax loanee made his debut as a substitute in last week’s win over Nottingham Forest and comes into the side for his first Town start today.

The Terriers are otherwise unchanged from the Forest game. In the absence of Christopher Schindler (hamstring), Jonathan Hogg captains the side; he has recovered from the injury that forced him off in the Forest win.

Juninho Bacuna is making his 50th competitive start for the Club today, whilst Harry Toffolo and Josh Koroma come up against a side they have played for on loan in the past.

Corberán is without the injured Tommy Elphick (knee), Terence Kongolo (foot), Lewis O’Brien (quad), Alex Pritchard (quad) Danny Ward (hamstring), Christopher Schindler (hamstring), Ryan Schofield (thumb) and Rarmani Edmonds-Green (hip).
