No changes to starting XI

Huddersfield Town Manager Simon Grayson has kept faith with the same starting XI for tonight’s npower Championship game at home to Blackburn Rovers; 7.45pm kick-off.

Strikers Jermaine Beckford and James Vaughan are still on the sidelines through injury, so Grayson looks set to keep faith with the 4-2-3-1 formation employed during the win over Bristol City on Saturday.

‘Keeper Alex Smithies will be looking for his fifth clean sheet of the season behind an unchanged back four of Paul Dixon, Joel Lynch, skipper Peter Clarke and Jack Hunt. Keith Southern and Oliver Norwood play in central midfield with Adam Clayton in a slightly more advanced position, leaving Sean Scannell and Adam Hammill to play wide of Lee Novak in attack. 

Town’s team vs. Blackburn Rovers:
1. Alex Smithies
2. Calum Woods
3. Paul Dixon
4. Oliver Norwood
5. Peter Clarke (c)
7. Sean Scannell
8. Adam Clayton
9. Lee Novak
14. Adam Hammill
24. Keith Southern
33. Joel Lynch

Substitutes: Ian Bennett, Anthony Gerrard, Danny Ward, Murray Wallace, Scott Arfield, Alan Lee, Anton Robinson
