- Huddersfield Town side named to face Nottingham Forest
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes six changes to the side
- Blackman, Sarr, Pipa, Ruffels, Hogg & Eiting all start
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made six changes to the starting line-up for tonight’s Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round game against Nottingham Forest; 7.30pm kick-off at the City Ground.
As the boss intimated in his pre-match press conference, the first change comes in goal. Lee Nicholls is a substitute tonight, with January recruit Jamal Blackman making his second Town start. His first came in the home win over Barnsley in the Fourth Round, when he kept a clean sheet.
Both Carel Eiting and Naby Sarr also make their first starts since the win in the previous round of the competition.
There is a welcome return for Pipa, who hasn’t played in the last four games as he recovered from a groin injury, whilst club captain Jonathan Hogg and Josh Ruffels also return to the starting line-up.
Ollie Turton, Harry Toffolo, Jon Russell, Lewis O’Brien, and Danny Ward drop out of the XI. All are substitutes tonight bar O’Brien, who is not involved tonight.
With the Emirates FA Cup allowing nine substitutes, Scott High and Aaron Rowe are substitutes this evening.
Corberán is without Ryan Schofield (shoulder), Álex Vallejo (knee), Josh Koroma (illness), Rolando Aarons (knee) and Levi Colwill (illness).
