TEAM NEWS: DERBY vs TOWN

23 February 2021

One change to the starting XI from Saturday’s win

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Derby County
- Injured Jonathan Hogg is replaced by Demeaco Duhaney
- Isaac Mbenza & Rarmani Edmonds-Green return to the bench

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made one change to the starting line-up for tonight’s game against Derby County; 7pm kick-off at Pride Park.

Unfortunately, Jonathan Hogg cannot play tonight due to the calf injury he sustained in Saturday’s win over Swansea City. His place in the side is taken by Demeaco Duhaney, who makes his first Sky Bet Championship appearance of 2021.

In the absence of Hogg and the injured Christopher Schindler, Lewis O’Brien captains the Terriers this evening.

The side is otherwise unchanged from the weekend victory over the Swans, although there are two welcome returns among the substitutes in Isaac Mbenza and Rarmani Edmonds-Green. Romoney Crichlow makes way from the match day squad.

Jayson Leutwiler also replaces Joel Pereira as a substitute.

Richard Keogh and Duane Holmes both start against their former club tonight. Richard started over 350 games for the Rams between 2012 and 2019, whilst Duane scored six times for Derby in 83 games.
