Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham makes two changes to the side
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Hull City
- Head Coach Mark Fotheringham makes two changes
- Jack Rudoni and Yuta Nakayama start against the Tigers
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham has made two changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Hull City; noon kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
With David Kasumu serving his one-match suspension following his red card at Luton Town in midweek, there’s a return to the side for reigning Blue & White Player of the Month Jack Rudoni.
The second switch comes in defence, where Yuta Nakayama replaces Luke Mbete. The Manchester City loanee is not involved in the match day squad this afternoon.
They are the only changes to the starting XI from the draw at Kenilworth Road, so Etienne Camara and Ben Jackson start back-to-back Championship games for the first time. It’s also the first time that top scorer Jordan Rhodes starts four straight games for the first time since his return to the Club in 2021.
Fotheringham has made further changes among the substitutes. Will Boyle is unavailable after an impact to his knee in training and Kaine Kesler-Hayden is not selected, so three players step into the match day squad.
Talented 19-year-old French midfielder Brahima Diarra makes his first appearance in a Championship squad this season following his goal for the B Team in the Premier League Cup win at Watford in midweek.
Two of Brahima’s B Team colleagues join him on the bench. Northern Ireland international Brodie Spencer, who made his senior Town debut in the Carabao Cup in August, is in a Championship squad for the first time, alongside 18-year-old striker Charles Ondo, who is awaiting his senior bow.
Fotheringham is without Matty Pearson (foot), Jonathan Hogg (calf), Tino Anjorin (illness), Will Boyle (knee), David Kasumu (suspended), Pat Jones (hamstring), and Tyreece Simpson (knee).
