First Sky Bet Championship start for Kian Harratt!

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Rotherham United
- Manager Neil Warnock has made three changes
- Kian Harratt, Sorba Thomas & Josh Koroma start

Huddersfield Town Manager Neil Warnock has made three changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Rotherham United; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The first change comes in attack, where 21-year-old striker Kian Harratt is given a first Sky Bet Championship start!

Kian made a real impact in our last game, grabbing an assist for Jack Rudoni’s winning goal in the 2-1 victory at West Bromwich Albion. That was his ninth substitute appearance in the division, whilst he scored on his only competitive start this season against Middlesbrough in the Carabao Cup.

He takes Danny Ward’s place, who isn’t risked today due to a sore Achilles.

Kian is joined in the starting line-up by Sorba Thomas, who has recovered from the knock that kept him out at the Hawthorns, and Josh Koroma. David Kasumu and Jaheim Headley make way and are among the substitutes today.

Tom Lees, who came through his first 45 minutes of the season in Wednesday’s B Team game against Newcastle United, isn’t involved today, whilst Ollie Turton (knee) and Loick Ayina (Achilles) are injured.

Former Rotherham United man Ben Wiles and Delano Burgzorg both make their first home starts as Town players today.
