Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham has made four changes to the starting XI to face Preston North End; 3pm kick-off at Deepdale.

Duane Holmes is back in the squad too, and starts in place of Brahima Diarra. The French teenager is also among the subs this afternoon. Today is Duane’s 100th league appearance for the Terriers.

Our fourth and final change sees Kaine Kesler-Hayden start in place of Sorba Thomas, who is not in today’s match day 18.

Alongside Ward, Fotheringham is without Ollie Turton (ankle), Luke Mbete (illness), Matty Pearson (foot), Tino Anjorin (ankle), Pat Jones (hamstring) and Yuta Nakayama (Achilles)
