Huddersfield Town are back on the road in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday 22 October when they travel to face Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium; 3pm kick-off.
The Terriers go into this game on the back of a 0-1 loss against Preston North End on Tuesday 18 October.
Middlesbrough come into this game looking to build on their 4-1 away win against Wigan Athletic on Wednesday 19 October and climb further up the table.
This is Middlesbrough’s sixth consecutive season in the Sky Bet Championship since they were relegated from the Premier League in the 2016/17 season, when Town were promoted to the top division.
Boro are looking for a new manager after parting ways with Chris Wilder at the beginning of October after losing to Coventry City, but continue working under Caretaker Manager Leo Percovich aiming to climb back up the table.
Middlesbrough currently sit 20th in the table after winning two and losing three of their last five fixtures.
ONES TO WATCH
The defender joined Middlesbrough from Sunderland in the summer of 2018 on a four year deal his contract was extended in December 2020.

Yorkshire born, the midfielder’s youth career was spent with Manchester United before he returned to Yorkshire with the Terriers.

This season Crooks has scored two goals and assisted two goals in his 14 appearances.
The forward signed for Middlesbrough on an initial short-term deal from Sunderland, but he committed his future to the club with a two-and-a-half-year contract in December 2020 after he was named Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for scoring five goals in his first eight appearances for Boro.
