- Huddersfield Town side named to face West Bromwich Albion
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes six changes to the side
- Nicholls, Toffolo, Turton, Russell, O’Brien & Ward return

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made six changes to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against West Bromwich Albion; 8pm kick-off at the Hawthorns.

Lee Nicholls returns in goal having been a substitute during Monday night’s Emirates FA Cup tie at Nottingham Forest, replacing Jamal Blackman.

Ollie Turton makes a fifth successive Sky Bet Championship start for the first time in his career, returning to the defence alongside Harry Toffolo. Jon Russell also returns to make his sixth successive league start, with Danny Ward also back in the starting line-up.

Lewis O’Brien has also shaken off any fitness doubts after suffering a few knocks against Peterborough United in our last Championship game to start tonight.

Pipa, Carel Eiting and Duane Holmes are substitutes tonight alongside Levi Colwill, who is back in the squad after a two-match absence through illness.

With the bench returning to only seven subs as opposed to the nine in the Emirates FA Cup, there is no place in the match day 18 for Naby Sarr, Josh Ruffels, Scott High, or Aaron Rowe.

Corberán is without the injured Ryan Schofield (shoulder), Álex Vallejo (knee) and Rolando Aarons (knee).
