Manager Darren Moore makes two changes to his Huddersfield Town line-up

- Huddersfield Town side named to face Middlesbrough
- Manager Darren Moore makes two changes to the side.
- Jacob Chapman makes full debut; Josh Koroma also starts

Huddersfield Town Manager Darren Moore has made two changes to the starting line-up for this evening’s Sky Bet Championship game against Middlesbrough, which kicks off at 7.45pm at the John Smith’s Stadium.

With Chris Maxwell sidelined with the hamstring injury that forced him off in the first half of our 3-0 win over Blackburn Rovers, 23-year-old Australian Jacob Chapman makes his full Town debut in goal.

Unfortunately, Delano Burgzorg is also sidelined with an ankle injury sustained in our Boxing Day game, so Josh Koroma makes his first start in four matches.

The team is otherwise unchanged from the win over Rovers, which means Jack Rudoni makes the 150th start of his club career.

The two vacated spaces in the match day squad go to two of our B Team players. 22-year-old Uganda international Giosue Bellagambi is our backup ‘keeper, and there’s a first appearance in a senior match day squad for Northern Ireland Under-21 international striker Conor Falls.

Moore is without Lee Nicholls (concussion protocol), Chris Maxwell (hamstring), Josh Ruffels (groin), Matty Pearson (calf), Delano Burgzorg (ankle), Tom Edwards (personal reasons), Ollie Turton (knee), Kian Harratt (hamstring), Danny Ward (Achilles), Pat Jones (hamstring), and Ben Jackson (illness).
