First Town start for Scott High in one of four changes

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Reading
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes four changes to the line-up
- Scott High makes his first start for the Terriers

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made four changes to the starting line-up for the final game of the 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship campaign against Reading; 12.30pm kick-off at the Madejski Stadium.

The first change sees Academy graduate Scott High come into the team for his first ever Championship start, following on from 14 substitute appearances in the competition. The 20-year-old comes in for Juninho Bacuna, who is among the substitutes today.

Rolando Aarons also comes into the side today for his first start since 30 January, largely due to the hamstring injury he subsequently suffered. The former Newcastle United man starts in place of Harry Toffolo, who isn’t risked today following his recent back injury.

There's also a welcome return for Álex Vallejo. The Spaniard has been unavailable since suffering a concussion in the 1-1 draw at home to Brentford on 3 April. He replaces Aaron Rowe, who misses out today.

The fourth and final change comes in attack, with last weekend’s goalscorer Danny Ward replacing Yaya Sanogo. The Frenchman hasn’t travelled with the squad due to a minor injury issue.

In similar fashion to Toffolo, Pipa isn’t risked today due to the groin issue that has hampered him recently.

Young striker Kieran Phillips and 19-year-old left-back Jaheim Headley are on the bench. This is Jaheim's first appearance in a competitive First Team squad.
