Schofield makes three changes to the starting side
- Huddersfield Town side named to face West Bromwich Albion
- Head Coach Danny Schofield makes three changes to the XI
- Jon Russell, Tino Anjorin & Rarmani Edmonds-Green start
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Danny Schofield 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.
Club captain Jonathan Hogg is sadly ruled out with a groin issue today, so Jon Russell returns to make his first start in three games.
With Tom Lees serving a one-match suspension following his red card at Norwich City last time out, Rarmani Edmonds-Green returns to the line-up – it’s also his first start in three.
The final switch sees a welcome return for Chelsea loanee Tino Anjorin, who missed the game at Carrow Road with a dead leg. He replaces Duane Holmes, who is among the substitutes.
Sadly, Pat Jones is suffering with illness and is not available today, so summer recruit Connor Mahoney makes his first appearance in a league squad for Town as a substitute.
There’s one final switch on the bench, with Ben Jackson replacing Josh Koroma.
Lee Nicholls captains the team today.
Today’s game is the 150th appearance of Sorba Thomas’ senior club career.
Alongside Hogg (groin), Lees (suspension), and Jones (illness), Schofield is still without Matty Pearson (foot) and David Kasumu (hamstring).
