Rhodes starts: The predicted Huddersfield Town XI to face Coventry on Saturday

Published

on

Huddersfield Town will be looking to build upon their recent victories over Middlesbrough and Barnsley in the Championship by producing a positive performance in their showdown with Coventry City tomorrow.

As a result of their triumph over the Tykes, the Terriers managed to secure a place in the play-offs and will now be keen to build up some momentum heading into this particular competition.

Although there is still an outside chance that Huddersfield will be able to secure automatic promotion next month, they have played one more game than AFC Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest in the second-tier this season.

Having witnessed his side’s performance against Barnsley earlier this month, it will be interesting to see whether Terriers head coach Carlos Corberan makes any significant alterations to his team for Saturday’s clash with Coventry.

Ahead of the club’s trip to the Coventry Building Society Arena, we have decided to take a look at how Huddersfield could line up in this fixture…

Having utilised a 4-4-2 formation against Barnsley, Corberan may opt to stick with this system tomorrow.

Goalkeeper Lee Nicholls has managed to claim an impressive total of 18 clean-sheets in the Championship this season and will be keen to add to this tally in his side’s meeting with Coventry.

Naby Sarr will feature alongside Tom Lees in the heart of defence while Harry Toffolo and Ollie Turton will occupy the full-back positions.

Jonathan Hogg is expected to start in central midfield alongside Jon Russell who has made 15 appearances for the Terriers in the second-tier during the current term.

With Danel Sinani set to miss this clash due to injury, Lewis O’Brien may have to fil in on the right-hand side of the pitch while Duane Holmes will be tasked with providing width in his particular role.

Quiz: Can you name what club these Huddersfield Town one-appearance wonders play for now?

What club does ex-Huddersfield man Jordan Williams play for now?

If Danny Ward is able to emerge unscathed from training today, he is likely to feature up-front alongside Jordan Rhodes.

After providing two direct goal contributions in his side’s win over Middlesbrough, Rhodes backed up this display by scoring against Barnsley.

Considering that he has managed to find the back of the net on 118 occasions at this level during his career, the forward will unquestionably be confident in his ability to make a difference for Huddersfield in their showdown with the Sky Blues.
