Six changes to the starting line-up for the Terriers

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made six changes to the starting line-up for this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship game against Bristol City; 12.30pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Carel Eiting comes back into the side for his first league appearance since the 3-0 home win over Peterborough United on 4 March 2022. He comes in for Lewis O’Brien, who is not involved today due to a slight abdominal issue.

There’s also a change of goalkeeper today. Lee Nicholls gets a rest as a substitute, with Jamal Blackman making his first Sky Bet Championship appearance for the Club.

Danel Sinani returns from the groin problem that kept him out at Coventry City last weekend, whilst Danny Ward starts his first game in four after a recent hamstring problem. They replace Jordan Rhodes, who is a substitute, and Scott High, who is not involved today.

The final two changes see Tom Lees and Levi Colwill drop to the bench, with Ollie Turton and Naby Sarr starting in their place. Today is Naby’s 100th Sky Bet Championship appearance!

Josh Koroma is back on the bench after a two-game absence with a hamstring injury.

Jon Russell is making his 50th senior appearance this afternoon.

Alongside O’Brien, Corberán is without Ryan Schofield (shoulder), Matty Pearson (knee), Álex Vallejo (knee) and Sorba Thomas (knee).
