David Wagner is ready carry on rotating his squad as he targets a festive points bonus for Huddersfield Town.

His side have trips to London to take on Brentford (Saturday) and QPR (Monday, December 28), either side of a home Boxing Day Championship clash with Preston North End.

Head coach Wagner made four changes to his starting XI as Town beat Rotherham United at the John Smith’s Stadium, and only two of them were enforced by injuries.

Defender Martin Cranie (thigh) and midfielder Emyr Huws (hamstring) missed out, with Joel Lynch and Duane Holmes called up for starts.

The other changes were Mustapha Carayol and Harry Bunn going in for Joe Lolley and Jamie Paterson, who both appeared as substitutes.

“I like rotation, but not for the sake of it,” explained Wagner. “It only makes sense when everyone is in form.

“Everyone has to bring a performance to the pitch, including the substitutes, because they have an important role to play as well.

“We needed to be fresh for the Rotherham game, and the same applies to the Brentford match.

“Winning doesn’t mean the team will stay the same. We will see how the players recover and who is fit by Saturday.

“We have a busy spell and we have to make sure the squad is as fresh as possible.”

Holmes made his first Town start since the 2013-14 season and Wagner was pleased with his performance.

“We decided to give Duane the chance to play,” he said. “He was with us at our camp in Spain and has done well in training since.”
