- Head Coach Mark Fotheringham names an unchanged side
- Turton, Hungbo, and Schofield in the match day 18
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham has named an unchanged starting 11 for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Coventry City; 3pm kick-off at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
The team is the same one that started our previous game, which came a fortnight ago and ended in a 1-1 stalemate at Hull City.
That means that Josh Ruffels plays against his former club; he came through the Sky Blues’ Academy and made two senior appearances for them in the 2011/12 season.
There are, however, three changes among the substitutes.
The first sees a welcome return to the squad for Ollie Turton, who is involved for the first time since he injured his ankle in the home win over Millwall in October. He replaces Sorba Thomas, who departed on loan for Blackburn Rovers earlier this week.
Our second switch sets up a possible Town debut for Joseph Hungbo, who joined the Club on loan from Watford earlier in the January transfer window. The 23-year-old takes the place of fellow loanee Martyn Waghorn, who is ineligible to feature against his parent club today.
With Ryan Schofield returning to the Club on Friday, he comes into the squad as backup goalkeeper. Jacob Chapman drops out of the 18, although he is also at the game today.
Alongside Waghorn, Fotheringham is still without Lee Nicholls (shoulder), Tino Anjorin (ankle), Danny Ward (hamstring), Pat Jones (hamstring), Yuta Nakayama (Achilles), and Anthony Knockaert (foot).
