- Huddersfield Town side named to face Stoke City
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes three changes to the line-up
- Naby Sarr, Duane Holmes and Fraizer Campbell start

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made three changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Stoke City; 3pm kick-off at the bet365 Stadium.

Fraizer Campbell makes his first start of the new league season, which is actually the 350th league appearance of his career. He replaces Danny Ward, who misses out today with a small hip issue.

The other two changes see Levi Colwill and Danel Sinani, who were both away with their countries during the international break, take spots among the substitutes today, with Naby Sarr and Duane Holmes starting.

There are further changes on the bench today. Unfortunately, Ryan Schofield isn’t available today due to a back issue, so 19-year-old goalkeeper Nicholas Bilokapic makes the second appearance of his career in a match day squad.

Two other players make their first appearances in Town’s match day squad. Newest recruit Mipo Odubeko is a substitute today alongside Josh Ruffels, who has now recovered from COVID-19. As a result, Scott High drops out of the squad today.

Alongside Ward and Schofield, Carlos Corberán is without the services of Pipa (hip), Jordan Rhodes (back) and Aaron Rowe (toe) this afternoon.
