Unchanged starting XI named for third straight game
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Luton Town
- Mark Fotheringham selects an unchanged side for third game
- Danny Ward and Brahima Diarra return to the bench
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham has named an unchanged side for the third straight game for this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship game against Luton Town; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The starting eleven is the same one that began our back-to-back victories over Preston North End and Rotherham United, meaning that top scorer Jordan Rhodes starts his 150th game for the club in all competitions.
There are two changes among the substitutes; Danny Ward returns after a two-game absence with a back problem, and Brahima Diarra is back having missed Thursday’s victory over the Millers through illness. With those two back in the match day 18, Connor Mahoney and Brodie Spencer drop out of the squad.
Fotheringham is still without Ollie Turton (ankle), Tino Anjorin (ankle), Pat Jones (hamstring), and Yuta Nakayama (Achilles), whilst Matty Pearson is back on the grass doing conditioning work after his long-term foot injury.
