TEAM NEWS: TOWN vs AFC BOURNEMOUTH

13 April 2021

Two changes to the starting XI to face the Cherries

- Huddersfield Town side named to face AFC Bournemouth
- Aaron Rowe and Isaac Mbenza come into the side
- Pipa on the bench; Yaya Sanogo out with foot laceration

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made two changes to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against AFC Bournemouth; 5.30pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Aaron Rowe comes into the side for the game, replacing Pipa; the Spain Under-21 international is a substitute this evening.

The other change sees Isaac Mbenza return to the line-up in place of Yaya Sanogo, who misses out tonight due to a deep cut to his foot sustained in Saturday’s draw with Rotherham United.

With Sanogo dropping out of the squad, Alex Pritchard returns as a substitute following his recent injury issue.

Corberán is still without Harry Toffolo (back), Álex Vallejo (concussion protocol), Oumar Niasse (hamstring), Demeaco Duhaney (hamstring), Danny Grant (thigh) and Christopher Schindler (knee), alongside Sanogo.

Carel Eiting (knee) and Josh Koroma (hamstring) returned to full training on Monday.
