Middlesbrough vs Huddersfield Town - Daniel Ayala may return for Middlesbrough against Huddersfield

Posted Monday, April 04, 2016 by PA

Daniel Ayala could return to the Middlesbrough starting line up when Huddersfield visit the Riverside.

The influential centre back was on the substitutes' bench at QPR on Friday night after missing nine Championship matches with a hamstring injury.

Ayala made his return to action for the final six minutes in west London and Boro head coach Aitor Karanka may restore his most accomplished defender to the team.

Attacker Cristhian Stuani should be back in contention after recent duty with the Uruguayan national team but defenders Jonathan Woodgate and Damia Abella (knee) are out with long-term injuries.

Huddersfield will be without on-loan Boro defender James Husband as he is ineligible to face his parent club.

Husband's absence is likely to mean a start for Australia international Jason Davidson at left back, otherwise Town head coach David Wagner should have the same squad to choose from.

Wagner has shown a tendency to rotate his players throughout his five months at the club, so the likes of Sean Scannell, Jamie Paterson, Martin Cranie, Emyr Huws and Rajiv van La Parra could come into his thinking for starting places on Tuesday night.

Only midfielders Jonathan Hogg (knee) and Kyle Dempsey (calf) are currently out injured for Huddersfield.
