Three changes for Ipswich Town to face Huddersfield Town with Conor Chaplin, George Hirst and Luke Woolfenden all starting





Ipswich Town manager Kieran McKenna has made three changes to his side for their crucial final Sky Bet Championship fixture of the season against all-but-relegated Huddersfield Town (12.30pm).

Homegrown defender Luke Woolfenden, joint top 13-goal top scorer Conor Chaplin and striker George Hirst have all been given the nod to start a game which sees Town just need to avoid defeat to guarantee automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Dropping to the bench from the tense 2-1 victory away to Coventry City on Tuesday is George Edmundson, Nathan Broadhead and Kieffer Moore.

Defender Harry Clarke, who had missed the mid-week game with a knee issue, returns among the substitutes with Cameron Humphreys dropping out of the match-day 20.

Huddersfield Town boss Andre Breitenreiter has opted for four changes from the 1-1 draw at home to relegation rivals Birmingham City on Saturday.

Former Blackpool goalkeeper Chris Maxwell, 33, as alluded to in his pre-match press conference, has come in for his first start since December in place of Lee Nicholls.

Tom Edwards, Ben Wiles and Ben Jackson has also come in for Brodie Spencer, Chelsea loanee Alex Matos and Josh Koroma.

Interestingly, Breiteneiter has opted to name two goalkeepers on the bench with Giouse Bellagambi also joining Maxwell.
