TEAM NEWS: BIRMINGHAM CITY vs TOWN

Carlos Corberán makes four changes to the starting line-up

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Birmingham City
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes four changes to the side
- Jordan Rhodes, Levi Colwill, Jonathan Hogg & Harry Toffolo start

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made four changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Birmingham City; 3pm kick-off at the St. Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium.

The first change comes in attack, where Jordan Rhodes makes his second Championship start of the season – his first since the opening day draw at Derby County – in place of Danny Ward, who is a substitute today.

There’s also a welcome return to the side for Levi Colwill, who makes his first start after a 10-game absence through injury. He replaces Tom Lees, who can’t be involved today – the head wound he sustained against Cardiff City in midweek has not healed to the point where he can play. It’s Levi’s 19th birthday today!

The third and fourth changes see club captain Jonathan Hogg and Harry Toffolo return to the XI at the expense of Danel Sinani and Josh Ruffels, who are substitutes today.

With Lees dropping out of the match day 18, Naby Sarr returns to the bench.

Alongside Lees, Corberán is still without Ryan Schofield (shoulder), Pipa (groin), Álex Vallejo (knee) and Rolando Aarons (knee). Tino Anjorin is continuing his rehab following his recent foot injury.
