Huddersfield Town vs Stoke City Team News:
After experimenting with a back four against Reading, Corberan will resort to a three-man backline for this match, especially given that Stoke will field a front two in the attack. If Levi Colwill is unable to play due to a knee injury, either Naby Sarr or Ollie Turton might be recalled, leaving Corberan with the dilemma of whether to play Pipa or Sorba Thomas at right wing-back. Naby Sarr and Ollie Turton are both eligible for selection.
Josh Koroma, who was the only offensive player who did not make a direct impact in the final third against Reading, may be the man who is left out of the attack going forward.
With the third game in a week on the horizon, O’Neill is expected to make many changes to his Stoke City starting lineup, including recalling Joe Allen. Mario Vrancic may also return to the starting lineup, while Tyrese Campbell will almost probably replace either D’Margio Wright-Phillips or Jacob Brown in the attacking midfield position.
Nick Powell will only be selected to the substitutes’ bench, having made his long-awaited return from the replacements’ bench the previous week.
Huddersfield Town vs Stoke City Probable Playing XI:

The One-Liner Explainer:
A positive result and performance from Stoke City are essential, and we believe this will contribute to O’Neill going on the attack against them. While not in the best of form, Huddersfield has been one of the most consistent sides in the league, and these two teams may cancel each other out at the John Smith’s Stadium.
