Mark Fotheringham makes two changes to the starting side
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Queens Park Rangers
- Head Coach Mark Fotheringham makes two changes
- Brahima Diarra makes his Sky Bet Championship debut!
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham has made two changes to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Queens Park Rangers; 7.45pm kick-off at Loftus Road.
The two changes are enforced, with David Kasumu serving a one-match suspension for accumulating five yellow cards and Etienne Camara ruled out with a hip issue.
As a result, 19-year-old Frenchman Brahima Diarra makes his first Sky Bet Championship start on the back of two eye-catching cameos as a substitute in our most recent games.
The other starting berth is taken by fellow B Team player Ben Jackson, who returns after one game out of the line-up.
The two available spaces in the match day 18 are taken by striker Charles Ondo and defender Loick Ayina. It is the latter’s first time in a Sky Bet Championship squad, having previously been an unused substitute in the Emirates FA Cup for the Terriers.
Fotheringham is without Ollie Turton (ankle), Matty Pearson (foot), Jonathan Hogg (calf), Tino Anjorin (illness), David Kasumu (suspended), Etienne Camara (hip), Pat Jones (hamstring), Tyreece Simpson (knee), Tom Lees (illness), and Yuta Nakayama (Achilles).
