Four changes made to the starting line-up
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Luton Town
- Head Coach Mark Fotheringham makes four changes
- Ben Jackson, Luke Mbete, Etienne Camara & Danny Ward start
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham has made four changes to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game at Luton Town; 7.45pm kick-off at Kenilworth Road.
Having impressed as a second half substitute at Reading on Saturday, Ben Jackson comes into the side for his first start of the season this evening. It’s a second Championship start for the B Team defender, and happens to be his 50th senior appearance. He replaces Yuta Nakayama, is at tonight’s game as the 19th man.
The second switch also comes in defence, where Manchester City loanee Luke Mbete makes his first start in three games at the expense of Ollie Turton, who is on the bench.
Our third change comes in central midfield, where Etienne Camara returns to replace Jon Russell. Russell drops out of the match day squad entirely.
Fotheringham’s fourth and final change comes in attack, where Danny Ward replaces Jack Rudoni. Former AFC Wimbledon man Rudoni is available as a substitute this evening.
Unfortunately, Jonathan Hogg has been ruled out with a calf injury, so the vacant three spaces among the substitutes are taken by Kaine Kesler-Hayden, Josh Ruffels, and the returning Will Boyle, who has missed the last five games as he recovered from a hip problem.
Alongside Hogg, Town are without Matty Pearson (foot), Tino Anjorin (illness), Pat Jones (hamstring), and Tyreece Simpson (knee).
Tom Lees captains the side on the 550th senior club start of his career.
