Corberán makes two changes for the Play-Off Final

- Huddersfield Town side named for the Play-Off Final
- Head Coach Carlos Corberán makes two changes to the team
- Sorba Thomas & Naby Sarr start against Nottingham Forest

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán has made two changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final against Nottingham Forest; 4.30pm kick-off at Wembley Stadium connected by EE.

Senegalese defender Naby Sarr returns to the side this afternoon alongside Sorba Thomas, with the latter making his first start in six matches after the knee injury he sustained in April’s win at Middlesbrough.

There’s good news up front where Danny Ward is fit to start despite the hip problem that forced him off in the second leg win over Luton Town.

Jon Russell and Duane Holmes are both substitutes alongside Matty Pearson, who is back in the match day squad for the first time following his eight-game absence with a knee injury.

Ollie Turton also makes a welcome return to the bench after the hamstring injury he sustained at Kenilworth Road in the first leg of the semi-finals.

As a result, Josh Ruffels and Carel Eiting drop out of the match day 18.

Jonathan Hogg captains the side on the 400th start of his career today!

Corberán is only missing Ryan Schofield (shoulder) and Álex Vallejo (knee).
