Neil Warnock makes just one change to his Huddersfield Town side

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Blackburn Rovers
- Manager Neil Warnock makes one change to the side
- Joseph Hungbo makes his first appearance in five games

Huddersfield Town Manager Neil Warnock has made one change to the starting line-up for this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship game against Blackburn Rovers; 12.30pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Having been ineligible to face his parent club Watford on Friday, Joseph Hungbo returns to the squad and starts today; his first appearance in five games. He replaces Rarmani Edmonds-Green, who is a substitute this afternoon.

Having sat out of the Good Friday win over Watford away, Tyreece Simpson is back in the squad this afternoon in place of Brahima Diarra.

The side is otherwise unchanged from the win at Vicarage Road, which means former Blackburn Rovers Academy player Matty Pearson makes the 400th start of his club career in all competitions.

Danny Ward makes his 150th league start for Huddersfield Town, whilst Josh Koroma makes his 50th Sky Bet Championship start too!

Warnock is still without Lee Nicholls (shoulder), Ollie Turton (knee), Tino Anjorin (ankle), Duane Holmes (ankle), and Yuta Nakayama (Achilles). Martyn Waghorn and Jaheim Headley are back on the grass following their recent injuries, but today’s game comes too soon for them.
