TEAM NEWS: SHEFF UTD vs TOWN

21 August 2021

Corberán makes one change for today’s Yorkshire derby

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Sheffield United
- Matty Pearson returns to the side after illness
- Tom Lees makes way and is a substitute for the Terriers

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made one change to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Sheffield United; 3pm kick-off at Bramall Lane.

Having been forced out of the game after falling unwell during the warm-up on Tuesday evening, Matty Pearson (pictured) has recovered and returns to the side this afternoon. After a good performance on his first 75 minutes since April, Tom Lees drops to the bench.

That’s the only change to the starting side that defeated Preston 1-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium in midweek, with Danny Ward also OK to start after illness forced him off during the half time interval.

There are changes among the substitutes, where Harry Toffolo makes a welcome return to the match day squad following his spell on the sidelines with COVID-19. With Lees also a substitute today, Rolando Aarons and Jordan Rhodes, who has a lower back issue, make way.

Lee Nicholls makes the 250th appearance of his domestic career in all competitions today.

Alongside Rhodes (back), Corberán is also without Pipa (thigh), Josh Ruffels (recovery from COVID-19) and Aaron Rowe (toe).
