TEAM NEWS: BORO vs TOWN

Danny Cowley names an unchanged starting line-up

- Huddersfield Town side named for Middlesbrough game
- Manager Danny Cowley names an unchanged starting line-up
- Lewis O’Brien returns to the bench after injury

Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley has named an unchanged starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Middlesbrough; 3pm kick-off at the Riverside Stadium.

This means the starting side includes Elias Kachunga, who is OK after being withdrawn during the second half of Saturday’s home win over Nottingham Forest due to a knock.

There is one change among the substitutes, where Lewis O’Brien returns following a four-game absence due to a calf injury sustained at Bristol City in late November. Lewis replaces fellow midfielder Scott High among the substitutes this afternoon.

Jonathan Hogg starts against his hometown club today; he spent time in the Middlesbrough Academy as a youngster before moving to turn professional at Aston Villa.

The Cowley brothers are still without Tommy Elphick (knee), Alex Pritchard (knee), Fraizer Campbell (hip) and Collin Quaner (hip).
