Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made one change to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game at Bristol City; 7pm kick-off at Ashton Gate.

With Danny Ward missing out tonight due to a calf injury, Isaac Mbenza returns to the side after a recent Achilles problem.

The place that Ward vacates in the match day squad is taken by Sorba Thomas, who makes his first appearance in a Town match day squad.

Two of Town’s starting line-up are former Bristol City players; Richard Keogh started 53 games for the Robins between 2005 and 2008, whilst Rolando Aarons was in City’s Academy before moving to Newcastle United in 2012.

Pipa starts tonight on his 23rd birthday, while Lewis O’Brien makes the 100th league start of his career.

Alongside Ward, Corberán is without Tommy Elphick, Jonathan Hogg, Adama Diakhaby, Richard Stearman, Carel Eiting, Josh Koroma, Danny Grant, Christopher Schindler and Rarmani Edmonds-Green this evening.
