TEAM NEWS: NORWICH CITY vs TOWN

16 August 2022

Duane Holmes replaces the injured Tino Anjorin in only change

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Norwich City
- Tino Anjorin out with a dead leg, so Duane Holmes returns
- Selection otherwise unchanged from win over Stoke City

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Danny Schofield has made one change to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game at Norwich City, which kicks off at 7.45pm at Carrow Road.

Unfortunately, Tino Anjorin is not available tonight due to the dead leg that forced him off the pitch during Saturday’s 3-1 home win over Stoke City. His place in the starting XI is taken by Duane Holmes, who recorded two assists in the final 25 minutes of the weekend victory.

With Anjorin sidelined, the vacant space in the match day 18 is taken by Wales Under-21 international Pat Jones. It’s a first appearance in a First Team match day squad this season for the 19-year-old winger, who returned to full training last week following a hamstring injury.

The side is otherwise unchanged from our last game, which means that goalkeeper Lee Nicholls makes the 300th club appearance of his senior career.

There are also two Town landmarks, with both Tom Lees and Sorba Thomas making their 50th competitive starts for the Club.

Substitute Jordan Rhodes played for tonight’s opposition on loan during the 2018/19 season.

Alongside Anjorin, Schofield is still without the services of Matty Pearson (foot) and David Kasumu (hamstring).
