Mark Fotheringham makes two changes to the side
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Middlesbrough
- Jack Rudoni and Yuta Nakayama start vs Boro
- Jordan Rhodes and Ben Jackson are substitutes
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham has made two changes to the starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Middlesbrough; 3pm kick-off at the Riverside Stadium.
The first switch sees Jack Rudoni return for his first start in three games, which also happens to be the 100th start of his club career in all competitions! The reigning AFC Wimbledon Player of the Year replaces former Boro man Jordan Rhodes, who is among the subs today.
Our second changes sees Japan international Yuta Nakayama come straight back into the team at the expense of Ben Jackson, who is available from the bench this afternoon.
The starting side is otherwise unchanged from the midweek game against Preston North End, but there is a further change to the match day squad among the substitutes. After a four game absence, Jon Russell returns to the 18, replacing recent debutant Charles Ondo.
Fotheringham is still without the services of Matty Pearson (foot), Jonathan Hogg (calf), Tino Anjorin (illness), Will Boyle (knee), Pat Jones (hamstring), and Tyreece Simpson (knee).
