Mark Fotheringham makes one change to the side

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Preston North End
- Ollie Turton replaces Yuta Nakayama in the starting side
- Josh Ruffels and Brahima Diarra come into the squad

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham has made one change to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Preston North End; 7.45pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Ollie Turton is the man coming in for his first start in four games; he replaces Yuta Nakayama, who is a substitute this evening.

As this is the only change, a pair of Town midfielders will hit career landmarks tonight. Duane Holmes makes the 200th start of his club career in all competitions, whilst David Kasumu makes his 100th club appearance.

Fotheringham also makes two changes among the substitutes. Josh Ruffels and Brahima Diarra return to the match day squad, with Aaron Rowe and Brodie Spencer making way.

Town are still without Matty Pearson (foot), Jonathan Hogg (calf), Tino Anjorin (illness), Wil Boyle (knee), Pat Jones (hamstring), and Tyreece Simpson (knee), whilst Kaine Kesler-Hayden is also unavailable tonight due to a foot issue sustained in training.
