Huddersfield Town’s Interim Head Coach Narcís Pèlach has made three changes to the starting line-up for this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship game against Wigan Athletic; 3pm kick-off at the DW Stadium.
After two appearances as a substitute, Fulham loanee Anthony Knockaert makes his first start for the Club this afternoon. The Frenchman replaces Scott High in the side, who is not involved in the match day squad today.
The second switch sees Etienne Camara make his first appearance in four games. He comes in for David Kasumu, who is a substitute for today’s game.
Our final change sees Josh Ruffels make a return to the side after a two-game absence. The 29-year-old replaces Matthew Lowton, who is not involved at all today.
There’s one final change among the substitutes, where Connor Mahoney replaces Brahima Diarra.
Pèlach is without Lee Nicholls (shoulder), Tino Anjorin (ankle), Kieran Phillips (hamstring), Duane Holmes (calf), Danny Ward (hamstring), Ben Jackson (quad), Yuta Nakayama (Achilles) and Michał Helik (knee).
