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

Lewis O’Brien completes his return from the quad injury he sustained in pre-season by starting his first game of the campaign today. He replaces Carel Eiting, with the Ajax loanee among the substitutes.

The second switch sees Club Captain Christopher Schindler come back into the side, replacing Josh Koroma. The 21-year-old, who has played every second of Championship action before today, is also a substitute.

The only other change to the match day squad comes on the bench, where Romoney Crichlow replaces Jaden Brown.

Fraizer Campbell starts the 200th English league game of his career today, whilst Naby Sarr makes his 100th English league appearance.

Corberán is without the services of Tommy Elphick (knee), Álex Vallejo (quarantine), Danny Ward (hamstring) and Rarmani Edmonds-Green (hip).
