Caretaker Manager Jon Worthington makes three changes to his Huddersfield Town team

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Sheffield Wednesday
- Caretaker Manager Jon Worthington makes three changes
- Radinio Balker makes his first debut for the Terriers!

Huddersfield Town Caretaker Manager Jon Worthington has made three changes to the starting line-up for this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship game against Sheffield Wednesday; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

January signing Radinio Balker is one of the players to come into the side, with the January recruit making his home debut and his first start in the famous blue and white stripes. He takes the place of Michał Helik, who misses out due to the impact that forced him off at QPR last weekend.

Matty Pearson also returns to the team this afternoon, completing his return from a recent calf injury. Matty takes the place of Ben Jackson, who is a substitute today.

Worthington’s third and final change comes further up the field, where Josh Koroma replaces Jack Rudoni. Unfortunately, both Jack and David Kasumu fell ill overnight and are absent today as a result.

Bojan Radulovic makes his John Smith’s Stadium debut in attack today, whilst Lee Nicholls is making his 100th start in competitive action for Town. Former Sheffield Wednesday player Tom Lees is starting his 100th Sky Bet Championship game for Town today too.

There are a couple of further changes to the bench. The first sees Wales Under-21 winger Pat Jones return following a long-term hamstring injury, whilst Tom Edwards is also involved today. Kyle Hudlin, who joined Sky Bet League One side Burton Albion this week, makes way.

B Team players Luke Daley and Conor Falls are also among the subs.

Worthington is without Chris Maxwell (hamstring), Jacob Chapman (ankle); Josh Ruffels (groin), Michał Helik (knee), Delano Burgzorg (ankle), Jack Rudoni (illness), Jaheim Headley (ankle), David Kasumu (illness), Ollie Turton (knee), Kian Harratt (hamstring), Danny Ward (Achilles), and Yuta Nakayama (international duty).
