Darren Moore makes five changes to his starting Huddersfield Town side

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Watford
- Manager Darren Moore makes five changes to the team
- A first Championship start for Kyle Hudlin

Huddersfield Town Manager Darren Moore has made five changes to the starting line-up for this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship game against Watford; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

One of those changes sees striker Kyle Hudlin make his first Huddersfield Town and Sky Bet Championship start. He comes in for Delano Burgzorg, who has been sidelined with a knee injury picked up in last weekend’s game at Leeds United.

With club captain Jonathan Hogg suspended for accumulating five yellow cards, Rarmani Edmonds-Green makes his first start under Darren Moore. Michał Helik will captain the side.

Tom Edwards has also been ruled out today having suffered a concussion, whilst Kian Harratt is not involved for personal reasons. Matty Pearson comes straight back onto the side alongside Jaheim Headley.

Our fifth and final change sees Ben Jackson replace Brahima Diarra, with the Mali Under-23 international among the substitutes.

Having returned to training this week, Josh Ruffels is among the six substitutes named for today’s game. Ruffels has missed our last three games with a groin injury.

David Kasumu has also returned to training this week, but he’s not ready to be involved today.

Sorba Thomas is making the 200th appearance of his club career this afternoon.

Moore is without 11 players today; Jonathan Hogg (suspended), Delano Burgzorg (knee), Jack Rudoni (foot), Josh Koroma (groin), Tom Edwards (concussion protocol), David Kasumu (hamstring), Ollie Turton (knee), Kian Harratt (personal reasons), Danny Ward (Achilles), Pat Jones (hamstring), and Loick Ayina (heel).
