Huddersfield Town v Blackburn Rovers: Confirmed team news, is there a live stream? What time is kick-off?

Published

on

Huddersfield Town host Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship this evening, looking to bounce back from three defeats in their last four fixtures. 

It’ll be a tough task for Carlos Corberan’s side, though, despite entertaining Tony Mowbray’s outfit on home soil.

Blackburn are unbeaten in five Championship fixtures and sit three points ahead of Town at this early stage of the season, in sixth.

Team News 

Corberan has been forced into changes this evening with Jonathan Hogg and Levi Colwill missing through injury, whilst Fraizer Campbell and Ollie Turton drop to the bench.

Lewis O’Brien is fit enough to start and captains the side, whilst Naby Sarr, Alex Vallejo, Danny Ward and Josh Koroma all come in.

Huddersfield XI: Nicholls; Pearson, Lees, Sarr; Thomas, Vallejo, O’Brien (C), Toffolo; Sinani, Ward, Koroma. 

Subs: Bilokapic; Aarons, Ruffels, High, Holmes, Turton, Campbell. 

Mowbray, meanwhile, is missing Darragh Lenihan due to a groin strain.

His replacement is Hayden Carter, but apart from that, Rovers are unchanged from the side that convincingly beat Cardiff City at the weekend.

Blackburn XI: Kaminski; Nyambe, Carter, Ayala, Pickering; Rothwell, Travis (C); Gallagher, Dolan, Buckley; Brereton Diaz. 

Subs: Pears; Magloire, Edun, Clarkson, Khadra, Poveda, Butterworth. 

Is there a live stream?

The game is available to watch on Sky Sports Arena, via the red button, for fans that aren’t in attendance.

Additionally, both Huddersfield and Blackburn are providing their own streaming services. Huddersfield’s (iFollow HTAFC) is available for £10, as is Blackburn’s (RoversTV).

What time is kick-off?

Kick-off this evening is at 7:45pm.
