Middlesbrough defender Daniel Ayala, a substitute in Friday’s win at QPR, could start after feeling no ill effects on his hamstring injury.

Forward Cristhian Stuani could return after recent duty with Uruguay.

Huddersfield may start defender Jason Davidson because loanee James Husband is ineligible to face his parent club.

Sean Scannell, Jamie Paterson, Martin Cranie, Emyr Huws and Rajiv van La Parra could get a chance if boss David Wagner decides to rotate his squad.
