Hatters boss Graeme Jones has named an unchanged team from the one that recorded the first win of the Sky Bet Championship season at Barnsley last week as Huddersfield Town visit Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

That means that Simon Sluga will be in goal before flying off to join up with the Croatia squad, with a back four of Luke Bolton - who heads off to join up with England U20s - Matty Pearson, captain Sonny Bradley and James Bree.

Jacob Butterfield, Andrew Shinnie and Ryan Tunnicliffe are in the midfield behind a front three of Harry Cornick, Kazenga LuaLua and James Collins.

The Hatters start the game in 18th place on four points from five matches, with the Terriers finding life tough as they readjust to life in the second tier following relegation from the Premier League, second-from-bottom at kick-off on one point.


TOWN: Sluga, Bolton, Pearson, Bradley (c), Bree, Butterfield, Shinnie, Tunnicliffe, LuaLua, Cornick, Collins. Subs: Lee, Mpanzu, Moncur, Galloway, Brown, Jones, Shea (GK)

HUDDERSFIELD: Grabara, Kongolo, Hogg, Chalobah, Diakhaby, Grant, Van La Parra, Campbell, Schindler (c), Brown, Hadergjonaj. Subs: Elphick, Bacuna, Kachunga, Pritchard, Mounie, Schofield (GK), O'Brien
