Four changes to the Town line-up
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Norwich City
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes four changes to the line-up
- Danny Ward makes his 100th start for the Terriers
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made four changes to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Norwich City; 7.45pm kick-off at Carrow Road.
Danny Ward comes in for his first start since suffering from hamstring and calf injuries - his first since the game against Millwall at the John Smith’s Stadium on 20 January. It is also Danny’s 100th for the Club in all competitions.
He’s joined in the line-up by Juninho Bacuna, who is making his 100th Town appearance in all competitions this evening.
Richard Stearman and Isaac Mbenza also return to the starting XI this evening.
Unfortunately, Pipa (groin) and Álex Vallejo (concussion protocol) are ruled out due to the injuries they sustained against Brentford on Saturday.
Strikers Fraizer Campbell and Yaya Sanogo are the other two players to make way; they are substitutes tonight.
Jaden Brown returns to the match day squad as a substitute, where he is joined by Tommy Elphick. It’s fantastic to see the former Bournemouth man back in the match day squad for the first time since sustaining a serious knee injury at Preston North End on 9 November 2019.
Jonathan Hogg captains the side on his 250th Town start in all competitions tonight, whilst Demeaco Duhaney starts a third straight game for the first time.
Corberán is without Pipa (groin), Harry Toffolo (back), Álex Vallejo (concussion), Alex Pritchard (precaution), Oumar Niasse (hamstring), Carel Eiting (knee), Danny Grant (thigh) and Christopher Schindler (knee) again tonight.
Rolando Aarons and Josh Koroma are both back in training after their respective hamstring injuries but are not ready to be selected.
