Hello and welcome to our matchday blog live from the John Smith's Stadium.

Huddersfield Town switch their focus from the Premier League to the Carabao Cup tonight, just two weeks in to their top flight campaign.

The Terriers have secured a pair of wins so far in the league and they will be hoping to keep the momentum going in the first cup competition of the season.

Head coach David Wagner will likely make wholesale changes to the side that beat Newcastle at the weekend however, with Town welcoming Southampton in the league on Saturday.

Town have already surpassed their league cup run of last season - when they were knocked out in the second round by Shrewsbury Town - as their remarkable promotion to the Premier League allowed them a bye in the first round.

Stick with us throughout the evening to see whether the Terriers can go one better again.

Key Events

Signing off
