Fotheringham makes one change to the starting side

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Blackpool
- Head Coach Mark Fotheringham makes one enforced change
- Matty Pearson returns to replace injured Michał Helik

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham has made one change to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Blackpool; 7.45pm kick-off at Bloomfield Road.

Unfortunately, Michał Helik has been ruled out tonight with the injury that forced him off during our 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. As a result, Matty Pearson makes an immediate return to the side.

With Helik dropping out of the match day squad, Will Boyle comes into the 18 as a substitute.

The side is otherwise unchanged from our last fixture, which means that Watford loanee Joe Hungbo starts back-to-back Sky Bet Championship games for the first time in his career.

Ollie Turton comes up against his former club; he made 165 appearances for the Tangerines between 2017 and his 2021 move to West Yorkshire.

Alongside Helik, Fotheringham is without Lee Nicholls (shoulder), Tino Anjorin (ankle), Duane Holmes (calf), Danny Ward (hamstring), Ben Jackson (quad), and Yuta Nakayama (Achilles).
