Corberán names same starting team from Derby game

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Preston North End
- Carlos Corberán names unchanged side from last Championship game
- Josh Ruffels & Jon Russell return to the squad as substitutes

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has named an unchanged starting XI from our last Sky Bet Championship game for tonight’s fixture against Preston North End; 7.45pm kick-off at Deepdale.

Having made eight changes for Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup win over Barnsley, Corberán has returned to the same side that started in the 2-0 home victory over the Rams a week ago for this evening’s match.

There are, however, two changes to the bench from that victory. Unfortunately, Pipa is missing due to the groin problem that forced him off at the weekend, whilst Scott High drops out of the squad. Josh Ruffels and Jon Russell come into the 18 as substitutes.

Alongside Pipa, Corberán is without Ryan Schofield (shoulder), Álex Vallejo (knee), Tino Anjorin (foot), Rolando Aarons (knee) and Levi Colwill (knee).
