Huddersfield Town host Middlesbrough this weekend as the Championship campaign gets back underway and Chris Powell begins his tenure as Terriers manager in earnest.

The meeting with Boro will see former players for both clubs go head-to-head in the middle of the park as summer signing Jacob Butterfield and Adam Clayton do battle for their new employers as Powell looks to get a first win under his belt on his debut as manager.

Town will be looking to recover from a tough start to the season and the recent 4-2 defeat at Watford before the international break, which proved to be interim manager Mark Lillis' last game in charge, with Powell announced as the permanent successor to Mark Robins last week.

Our Town reporter Doug Thomson will be at the John Smith's Stadium this weekend to take in proceedings - and he says the Terriers can make a fresh start to the season under Powell's tutelage.

Watch the video above to see Doug discuss the signing of Mark Hudson, the key for Town to secure a result against Boro and the various threats posed by the visitors after their raft of signings.
