Josh Ruffels & Jon Russell make first Championship starts

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Sheffield United
- Carlos Corberán makes four changes to the side
- Josh Ruffels, Pipa, Jon Russell & Josh Koroma come in

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made four changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Sheffield United; 12.30pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Josh Ruffels and Jon Russell both come into the side for the first Sky Bet Championship starts of their careers today, having impressed in recent Emirates FA Cup starts. Ruffels replaces Harry Toffolo and Russell comes in for Duane Holmes – both Harry and Duane are among the substitutes.

Pipa also returns to the team for just his second Sky Bet Championship start of the season, having recovered from the small groin issue that kept him out of the squad for the midweek draw at Preston North End. He comes in for Ollie Turton, who is on the bench.

The final switch comes further up the pitch, where Josh Koroma replaces Danel Sinani.

With Pipa returning to the 18, Naby Sarr makes way.

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

Lewis O’Brien makes the 150th start of his career in all competitions today!

Substitute Jamal Blackman spent a season on loan with today’s opponents, playing 33 games on loan from Chelsea in the 2017/18 campaign.

Both Tom Lees and substitute Jordan Rhodes spent long spells with the Blades’ intercity rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
