Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner has promised changes for the visit to Championship promotion chasers Middlesbrough.
They could include a return to the starting side for Jamie Paterson, who made an impact from the bench in Saturday’s derby defeat by Sheffield Wednesday.
With Boro loanee James Husband ineligible against his parent club, Jason Davidson is set to return at left-back as Town chase a first victory at the Riverside Stadium after five failed attempts.
And Wagner said of forward Paterson: “Against Sheffield, I thought he gave us something we didn’t have in the first half.

“There will be changes, and the final selection will be made after our final two training sessions (on Monday evening and Tuesday morning).
“But it is not so much who is on the pitch but how we are on the pitch.
“We know Middlesbrough are very strong, especially at home.
“It is not the easiest challenge but it is a very interesting one.
“We must be totally focused and do the simple things right.
“We must be compact, stable and tight in defence - this is the basis of success.
“But we have to be more clinical and cool in front of goal than we were against Sheffield.
“For us to score first would be particularly interesting, so we will have to start with tempo.
“That is not a problem, because we like full-throttle football.
“We aim to bring our identity into this match and we aim to win, not to avoid defeat.”<p/> <p/>
