TOWN’S TEAM vs. BORO

1 October 2013

Two changes to starting XI

Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins has made two changes to his starting XI for tonight’s 7.45pm Sky Bet Championship at Middlesbrough.

Oscar Gobern (pictured) returns to the starting line-up to make his 50th appearance in all competitions for the Terriers; he replaces Oliver Norwood.

Elsewhere Sean Scannell is awarded a place in the side after his Man of the Match performance as a substitute against Blackpool on Friday night. ‘Scanz’ replaces Jonathan Stead in the line-up.

As a result, midfielders Adam Clayton and Adam Hammill – once a Middlesbrough loanee – make their 150th career starts tonight, whilst Jonathan Hogg plays at the Club where he began his career; the summer signing was a Middlesbrough junior until he joined Aston Villa as a 14 year-old. 

Town’s team vs. Middlesbrough:
1. Alex Smithies
5. Peter Clarke (c)
