Neil Warnock makes two changes as Duane Holmes and Danny Ward return
- Huddersfield Town side named to face Middlesbrough
- Manager Neil Warnock makes two changes to the side
- Duane Holmes back from 11-game injury absence
Huddersfield Town Manager Neil Warnock has made two changes to his starting line-up for today’s Sky Bet Championship game against Middlesbrough; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The first switch sees Duane Holmes make a welcome return from his long injury absence, with the USA international replacing Ben Jackson to start today. It’s a first game in 12 for Duane, due to a calf injury.
Our second change sees Danny Ward, fresh from his match-winning goal at Millwall last time out, replace Martyn Waghorn, who misses out with the hamstring injury he sustained at the Den.
Jackson is among the substitutes today, where he is joined by Jordan Rhodes and Matthew Lowton. Alongside Waghorn, Etienne Camara and Brahima Diarra drop out of the match day squad.
Warnock is without Lee Nicholls (shoulder), Ollie Turton (knee), Kieran Phillips (hamstring), Yuta Nakayama (Achilles), Jaheim Headley (hamstring), and Martyn Waghorn (hamstring) today.
