Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between Middlesbrough and Huddersfield Town at the Riverside Stadium.

Middlesbrough head into Tuesday night's clash with Huddersfield Town on a run of seven league games without a win.

Tony Mowbray's side are also yet to earn a victory at the Riverside Stadium this season, with their only success coming away at Charlton Athletic in the second week of Championship action.

Boro were well beaten by league leaders Queens Park Rangers last Saturday, with Lukas Jutkiewicz and Richard Smallwood among those hoping to return in midweek.

Huddersfield travel to the North-East unbeaten in their last four and also have the league's top scorer fit and firing in James Vaughan.

Town boss Mark Robins could choose to give Sean Scannell a return to the starting XI at the Riverside after he had an impact from the bench against Blackpool last Friday.
