Huddersfield Town host Watford this afternoon in the Sky Bet Championship, with Carlos Corberan’s side hoping for a surprise win against the promotion-hopefuls.
It’s tough for Corberan at the moment, with injuries pinching.
However, today he’s been able to call on an unchanged XI from the side that drew 0-0 with Coventry City on Wednesday evening.

That means that it’s Ryan Schofield in goal again in Ben Hamer’s absence.
Pipa, Rarmani Edmonds-Green, Naby Sarr and Harry Toffolo make up the back-four.
Jonathan Hogg captains the side and anchors midfield, with Lewis O’Brien and Carel Eiting either side of him. Judging by the selection, Juninho Bacuna will be given a free role behind the two strikers: Isaac Mbenza and Fraizer Campbell.
Many fans are acceptant that this is tough for Corberan given his injuries, with a fair few pointing out that this is the best XI available.
We dive into some reaction here…
Good.. although hope Bacuna up for it today

Thought Toffs looked dead on his feet after 70 mins against Coventry -Hope he's had a good rest and ready for the battle ahead- What price a Hogg booking!!

Another 90 minutes of Bacuna strolling around and not looking interested!
