Carlos Corberán makes one change to the starting XI

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Derby County
- Carlos Corberán makes one change to the starting line-up
- Duane Holmes returns to face his former side

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made one change to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Derby County; 7.45pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Former Derby County man Duane Holmes comes back into the side for his first start in four games at the expense of Josh Koroma, who is a substitute tonight.

Duane, who missed those games due to a COVID-19 isolation period, played 83 games for the Rams between 2018 & 2021, scoring six goals.

The starting line-up is otherwise unchanged from the side that drew at home to Stoke City on Friday evening, with Ollie Turton starting back-to-back games for the first time since November.

There are three incomings among the substitutes tonight, however. Pipa is back in the squad after the Achilles problem that kept him side-lined in the last game, whilst Jamal Blackman and Carel Eiting are on the bench tonight following their arrivals on Deadline Day!

Nicholas Bilokapic – who is now on loan at Hartlepool United – Josh Ruffels and Jon Russell are out of the match day 18 as a result.

Corberán is still without Ryan Schofield (shoulder), Álex Vallejo (knee), Rolando Aarons (knee) and Levi Colwill (knee).
