ADAM CLAYTON will lose his ever-present Huddersfield Town record tonight.
The former Leeds man serves a one-match ban after picking up his fifth caution of the campaign at Charlton.
“It’s a shame, because he’s a smashing lad and a talented footballer,” said teammate Alan Lee.
Clayton is the first Town player to be banned under the totting up rule this term – but left-back Paul Dixon and centre-back Joel Lynch are both on four bookings.
The cut-off date for a five-bookings ban is December 31.
Cheshire’s Scott Mathieson will be in charge tonight.
It’s an 18th appointment of the season for the 49-year-old, who took Saturday’s League II game between Oxford and Northampton, booking six and red carding the latter’s Clarke Carlisle.
On the League list since 1997, his last Town game was last season’s League I play-off final semi-final second leg clash at home to MK Dons.
