TOWN’S TEAM vs. BURNLEY

26 February 2013

Theo makes first start under Robins

Theo Robinson makes the first start of his second spell at Huddersfield Town in tonight’s npower Championship game at Burnley; 7.45pm kick-off at Turf Moor.

Robinson’s inclusion, which comes at the expense of Lee Novak, is one of two changes to the team that started against Ipswich Town on Saturday.

The other sees Sean Scannell return to the side, with Scott Arfield dropping to the bench.

Town’s side is expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation this evening, with goalkeeper Alex Smithies aiming for consecutive clean sheets for the first time this season behind a back four of Scottish international Paul Dixon, Captain Peter Clarke, Anthony Gerrard and Calum Woods.

Oscar Gobern makes his second League start of the season alongside loanee Neil Danns in central midfield, with Adam Clayton ahead of them between Sean Scannell and Theo Robinson. Joint top scorer James Vaughan leads the line in Lancashire tonight.

After missing Saturday’s game for the birth of his first child, striker Alan Lee returns to the bench tonight – he’s a former Burnley player.
