The Terriers return from international duty to continue their Sky Bet Championship campaign on Saturday 1 April, back at the John Smith’s Stadium against Middlesbrough.
Our reverse fixture with Middlesbrough took place back in October, which saw Town leave the Riverside Stadium with a point after a 0-0 draw.
Middlesbrough currently sit third, at the top of the Play-Off places, in the Sky Bet Championship and are just three points behind Sheffield United in the automatic promotion places.
The Boro come into this came on the back of a 4-0 at home against Preston North End before the international break on Saturday 18 March. Middlesbrough have won three, drown one and lost one of their last five games.
Michael Carrick was appointed Head Coach of Middlesbrough in October 2023, just two days after Town’s trip to the Riverside Stadium.
