Ryan Schofield makes his Sky Bet Championship debut
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Middlesbrough
- Ryan Schofield makes his Sky Bet Championship debut in goal
- Kamil Grabara misses out through illness
Ryan Schofield makes his Sky Bet Championship debut in Town’s only change for tonight’s game against Middlesbrough; 7.45pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The 19-year-old custodian makes his league debut for the Terriers in place of Kamil Grabara, who misses out through illness this evening. As a result, Joel Coleman takes a place among the substitutes.
Academy graduate Ryan, who is an England Under-20 international, has previously played for Town’s First Team in the Carabao Cup, adding to 17 Sky Bet League 2 starts for Notts County last season.
The starting line-up is otherwise unchanged from the team that began Town’s last game at Blackburn Rovers, although there is another change among the substitutes. Unfortunately, Alex Pritchard has a slight groin issue, so Isaac Mbenza returns to the match day squad.
Alongside Grabara and Pritch, Danny Cowley is without Terence Kongolo (calf), Herbert Bockhorn (hamstring) and Collin Quaner (hip).
