Huddersfield Town Manager Neil Warnock has made four changes to the starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Bristol City; 7.45pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

With Jaheim Headley sidelined by the hamstring injury he sustained against Coventry City at the weekend, Ben Jackson makes his first senior appearance of 2023 this evening.

Our second switch sees Brahima Diarra make his third career Sky Bet Championship. He replaces Scott High, who is out of the squad tonight having broken his hand during Saturday’s game.

Our third changes comes in goal, where Czech Republic international Tomáš Vaclík makes his first appearance in four games. Australian stopper Nicholas Bilokapic drops to the bench.

Finally, Josh Ruffels comes in for his first game in three, with Matt Lowton dropping out of the squad.

Alongside Nicholas Bilokpaic amongst the returning substitutes is Martyn Waghorn, who was ineligibile vs Coventry City, David Kasumu and Josh Koroma.

Warnock is also without Lee Nicholls (shoulder), Ollie Turton (knee), Kieran Phillips (hamstring), Duane Holmes (calf), Pat Jones (calf), and Yuta Nakayama (Achilles).
