- Huddersfield Town side named to face West Bromwich Albion
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes three changes to the side
- Naby Sarr, Scott High & Ollie Turton all start
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made three changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against West Bromwich Albion; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Jonathan Hogg (knee) and Duane Holmes (thigh) are unavailable after picking up injuries at Cardiff City a fortnight ago and unfortunately, they are joined on the sidelines by Tom Lees, who is unwell.
Scotland Under-21 international Scott High comes into the side for his first start since the 0-0 draw at Luton Town on 2 October 2021. He’s joined in the side by Ollie Turton and Naby Sarr, with the Senegalese centre back making his 50th Sky Bet Championship start for the Terriers.
With Hogg missing this afternoon, Lewis O’Brien will captain the side.
There’s a welcome return among the substitutes for Ryan Schofield, who is on the team sheet for the first time since late August after recovering from his back injury. He replaces B Team ‘keeper Nicholas Bilokapic.
The three vacant spaces in the match day 18 are taken by defender Josh Ruffels, midfielder Jon Russell and striker Mipo Odubeko.
Alongside Hogg, Holmes, and Lees, Corberán is without Pipa (hip), Álex Vallejo (knee) and Aaron Rowe (toe). Jordan Rhodes is back on the training pitch after his long-term back injury, but needs more time before being available for selection.
