TEAM NEWS: READING vs TOWN

22 January 2022

One change to the starting line-up from Swansea City draw

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Reading
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes one change to the side
- Pipa makes his first Championship start of the season

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made one change to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Reading; 3pm kick-off at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

That solitary change comes in defence, where Pipa comes in for his first Sky Bet Championship start of the season. He replaces Ollie Turton, who is a substitute this afternoon.

The starting XI is otherwise unchanged from last weekend’s 1-1 home draw with Swansea City, with Danel Sinani passed fit to start after being substituted in that game with a hamstring complaint.

There is one other change among the substitutes today, where Aaron Rowe returns to the squad having recovered from his positive COVID test recently. He replaces Scott High, who is still with the squad at Reading today.

Corberán is without the injured Ryan Schofield (shoulder), Álex Vallejo (knee), Rolando Aarons (knee), Duane Holmes (back in training after COVID isolation period) and Levi Colwill (knee).
