Mbenza replaces Jackson in single change from Norwich game

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Brentford
- Carlos Corberán makes one change to side that faced Norwich City
- Isaac Mbenza starts in place of Ben Jackson

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made one change to his team for today’s Sky Bet Championship game at Brentford’s new Community Stadium.

Isaac Mbenza comes into the side for his first competitive start of the new season, with 19-year-old Ben Jackson dropping to the bench after making his Championship debut last weekend.

Both former Brentford men in the Town line-up hit landmarks today.

Ben Hamer, who enjoyed three loan spells for the Bees between 2007 and 2011, makes the 300th league start of his career today.

Meanwhile Alex Pritchard – a former Brentford Players’ Player of the Year from a loan spell in 2014/15 – makes his 50th league start for Huddersfield Town.

Jonathan Hogg also makes the 350th of his career today.

There are changes among the substitutes today, where Demeaco Duhaney and Matty Daly replace Aaron Rowe and Rarmani Edmonds-Green.

Young Terriers Nicholas Bilokapic, Brahima Diarra and Pat Jones have travelled with the squad today for the experience too.

Corberán is without the services of Ryan Schofield (thumb), Tommy Elphick (knee), Terence Kongolo (foot), Lewis O’Brien (quad), Naby Sarr (quarantine) and Danny Ward (hamstring) this afternoon.
