Darren Moore names his first team as Manager of Huddersfield Town
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Coventry City
- Manager Darren Moore makes four changes to the side
- Jonathan Hogg, Delano Burgzorg, Ben Jackson & Jaheim Headley start
New Manager Darren Moore has named his first Huddersfield Town side for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Coventry City; 8pm kick-off at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
Moore will be delighted to be able to welcome club captain Jonathan Hogg back into the starting side, the skipper having missed our last match against Stoke City through illness.
Hogg is joined in the line-up by Delano Burgzorg, who is making his third start for the club following his loan move from Mainz 05.
In the third of his four changes, Moore hands a first Sky Bet Championship start of the season to Ben Jackson, who has made four substitute appearances so far this campaign and recorded his first assist of the term in the Stoke City game.
The four change sees Jaheim Headley return to the starting line-up after a three game absence.
Unfortunately, Josh Ruffels is missing tonight with a groin problem and David Kasumu is out with the hamstring injury sustained in the Stoke draw. Sorba Thomas and Kian Harratt drop to the bench, with Tom Edwards returning to the match day squad alongside them.
Alongside Ruffels and Kasumu, Moore is also without Ollie Turton (knee), Danny Ward (Achilles) and Loick Ayina (Achilles).
Our top scorer Jack Rudoni is making his 50th Sky Bet Championship start tonight.
