Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made four changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Blackburn Rovers; 3pm kick-off at Ewood Park.

After impressing as a substitute against Barnsley in midweek, Ajax loanee Carel Eiting starts his first game following his knee injury this afternoon; his first start since the home game against Reading on 2 January.

He’s joined in the line-up by full backs Harry Toffolo and Pipa, who both missed the midweek game as a precaution after their recent returns from injury. Toffolo is making his 50th start for the Club in all competitions.

The fourth change sees Danny Ward return to the starting line-up in attack.

Duane Holmes, Aaron Rowe, Rarmani Edmonds-Green and Yaya Sanogo make way, and are all among the substitutes today.

Jonathan Hogg skippers the side on his 250th league appearance in Town colours, whilst midfield colleague Juninho Bacuna is making his 100th league appearance for the Terriers.
