Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made two changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Preston North End; 3pm kick-off at Deepdale.

Having recovered from the adductor injury that has kept him out since the game at Watford on 16 January, Rarmani Edmonds-Green comes back into the team this afternoon.

He is joined in the line-up by Town’s assist leader, Isaac Mbenza, who is fit to start after his recent abdominal issue.

Fraizer Campbell starts today, having recovered from the illness that forced him off at Pride Park in midweek.

Aaron Rowe and Demeaco Duhaney drop to the bench this afternoon.

There are also a couple of changes among the substitutes, with Town’s newest recruit Yaya Sanogo coming straight into the match day squad alongside Joel Pereira. Jayson Leutwiler and the suspended Jaden Brown make way.

Lewis O’Brien captains the team again today on the 100th league start of his career.

Corberán is without Harry Toffolo (back), Jonathan Hogg (calf), Carel Eiting (knee), Rolando Aarons (hamstring), Josh Koroma (hamstring), Danny Grant (hamstring), Danny Ward (calf), Christopher Schindler (knee) and Jaden Brown (suspended).
