Huddersfield Town return from the international break with a trip to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday 19 October 2019; 12.30pm kick-off.
Five of the Terriers’ First Team players will return to PPG Canalside ahead of the game, having been away with their national sides over the break.
It will be Town’s first game since a 3-0 league win over Hull City at the John Smith’s Stadium nearly two weeks ago.
The Terriers will be looking for a third successive win and to stretch the Club’s current unbeaten run to four matches when they make the trip over the Pennines on Saturday.
A season of mixed fortunes so far currently sees Rovers occupy a mid-table spot after the first 11 games of the season.
Off the back of a similar finish last season, Tony Mowbray’s side lost the first two league games of the campaign before going three unbeaten, a run that included a succession of narrow 1-0 wins over Middlesbrough and Hull City.
Following a 3-2 defeat at West Brom in late August, Rovers returned from the September international break with back-to-back victories over Millwall and Reading.
Since then, the Club are without a win in three games however, having dropped points in successive home games against Luton Town and Nottingham Forest before defeat at Queens Park Rangers last time out.
Away from the league, Rovers made it to the Second Round of this season’s Carabao Cup before being knocked out at Premier League Sheffield United.
ONES TO WATCH
Walton made the move up north to Blackburn Rovers on a season-long loan from Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer. Rovers is the 23-year-old’s sixth loan Club since making his professional debut for the Seagulls back in 2013. The shot stopper has kept four clean sheets in eleven appearances this season, which is second most in the league behind Leeds United’s Kiko Casilla (five).
The midfielder joined Rovers in the summer of 2017 off the back of an impressive 2016/17 campaign with Gillingham in which he won the Club’s Young Player of the Season award for the third successive year. Since then, Dack has made just over a century of appearances for the Lancashire Club, netting 40 times across his two-and-a-half seasons at Ewood Park. Dack has scored five of those goals in the early stages of 2019/20 and is the Club’s top scorer so far this season.
The Newcastle United Academy graduate signed permanently with Blackburn ahead of the 2018/19 season following a successful loan spell with the Club in the season prior, helping them to promotion from Sky Bet League 1. Having signed permanently, Armstrong has become a key threat in Blackburn’s attack, making over 50 appearances for the Club since the summer of 2018. He’s scored in three of Rovers’ last four games in the Sky Bet Championship, including in their last outing at Queens Park Rangers.
TEAM NEWS – BLACKBURN ROVERS
Last week, Rovers defender Darragh Lenihan sustained a knee injury whilst representing the Republic of Ireland, which means he will miss Saturday’s game at Ewood Park.
Fellow defender Greg Cunningham could also miss the 12.30pm kick-off with an injury that forced him off at Loftus Road, in Blackburn’s last game before the international break.
TEAM NEWS – TOWN
Manager Danny Cowley will detail Huddersfield Town’s latest team news at his press conference on Thursday 17 October 2019.
